Our heartfelt thanks to Christa at Bark N’ Cat in North Adams, MA.

She is the Director of The Humane Race and will see us into our second decade of supporting the wonderful work being done at The Berkshire Humane Society.

Please stop back soon for a sneak peak to see who is sponsoring this year’s race.

We love them for being supportive and enthusiastic, as well as a huge resource to our community. See their website for a comprehensive look at their veterinary services. They do A LOT!

This year we honor Dr. Michelle Gorbutt, DVM who passed away after a heroic fight against pancreatic cancer. She was a beloved vet and amazing friend to many, including the Berkshire Humane Society.
