The mission of the Humane Society of Berks County is to serve Berks County through education and outreach in the community, medical services for needy animals, humane investigation, safe shelter for homeless animals and strong sterilization and adoption programs to ensure that every companion animal lives in a safe, loving and secure home.
In 2005 the leadership of the Humane Society of Berks County created the following vision of the outcomes of its efforts:
We are the best organization to eliminate pain and suffering, and enhance the quality of life for animals in our area. Every day, we impact companion animals in and around Berks County and improve people’s interaction with them. Additionally, we are the source for valuable information about animals and provide the best opportunity for homeless animals to find a home. We provide spay and neutering free of charge to all who need it.
We are highly effective and efficient, so much so, we are the model for other animal welfare organizations. We have the best qualified staff to provide the services people and animals need and a board that is diverse and brings a wide range of skills, capabilities, experiences and assets to our organization. Everyone associated with our organization is passionately devoted to our mission.
Because we have multiple facilities located throughout the county, no Berks Countian is no more than 30 minutes from one of our locations. We have all of the resources we need to do what we want to do how we want to do it.
As a result of our strategic focus and hard work, we are able to fund our operations based on traditional sources of revenue and our growth and expansion based on transformational, philanthropic dollars. As importantly, our reach is broad enough that we positively impact animals we don’t even touch.
