FURRY FRIDAYS2018-08-17T13:20:05+00:00


The next fun-filled Furry Friday is coming your way on Friday, August 24 from 4-7pm! Furry Fridays are our way of bringing together people with passions for art and animals alike, opening our shelters to the public and offering a space to mix and mingle after a long work week! We provide the art, food, drinks and entertainment, and you provide the fun and engaging atmosphere!

Our featured artist is not just one talented individual, but many! This Furry Friday is not one to miss, as we will showcase the incredible work done by the individuals at Friendship Heart Gallery. You’ll see some beautiful work created by the kindest people who are so excited to support our mission and be apart of this Furry Friday!

Friendship Heart Gallery provides value through artistic expression to Artists with intellectual disabilities. The artwork has been created by remarkable Individuals. This non-profit Gallery–located near gallery row is in Downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Friendship Heart Gallery promotes:
– Artistic skills
– Self-expression
– Economic independence
– Personal value

In addition to an exhibit featuring the works of our featured artists, the Humane Society of Berks County will host its annual Walk Kick-Off Party! Guests are welcome to register for our 41st Annual Performance Toyota Walk for the Animals & Walktoberfest as they mingle with like-minded animal lovers, art enthusiasts, and supporters of Humane Pennsylvania. Music, food and refreshments are provided at no cost. And this is the perfect time to grab that Walk yard sign and show off your support for this annual fundraiser!

Our Furry Friday shows are a great way to introduce people to our mission, get folks in to see animals for adoption, remind them that our adoption centers are happy and inviting places, and to show our appreciation for the artists in the region who have done so much through the years to raise funds and awareness for our mission by making some of our animal welfare supporters aware of fantastic art. We hope to see you there!
