We are thrilled to announce that, after supporting The Humane Race in a huge way every single year, our wonderful friends at Greylock Animal Hospital have upped their game even further and are now our Title Sponsor! The team at Greylock Animal Hospital provide high quality and caring health care for all your pets. Please thank them for their support of The Humane Race next time you bring your pet in for preventative care, medicine, or surgery.
This year, for the first time in our 10 year history, The Humane Race is proud to have not one but two title sponsors. Our heartfelt thanks to Donovan & O’Connor for joining the cause this year with their generous support!
Donovan & O’Connor, LLP, with offices located in North Adams, Pittsfield and Bennington, is a team of 18 attorneys providing legal solutions of the highest quality and nearly 20 support staff committed to providing attentive personal service. Through the years, they have grown into a general law practice providing advice, services and representation in a wide range of practice areas, including personal injury litigation, estate planning, commercial and business law, administration and real estate.
We are proud to announce that Hill’s Pet Nutrition (makers of Hill’s Science Diet and Hill’s Prescription Diet pet foods) is joining The Humane Race as a Special Sponsor again this year. Hill’s Pet Nutrition has been a key sponsor of The Humane Race for many years and we are thrilled to have their support again this year. Their participation in this event is especially fitting, given that dogs at the Berkshire Humane Society shelter are fed exclusively with Hill’s Dog Foods. Thanks to everyone at Hill’s Pet Nutrition for supporting the race and the BHS.
