FURRY FRIDAYS2018-05-23T09:40:06+00:00


The next fun-filled Furry Friday is coming your way on Friday, June 1st! 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!

Join us on Friday, June 1 from 4-7 p.m. at the Humane Society of Berks County! Light refreshments and drinks will be provided! And of course, what would a visit to our shelter be without visiting our furry friends available for adoption!

The very talented, Suzanne Fellows will be our featured artist! Suzanne Fellows is a painter and printmaker with a studio at the Goggleworks. She also teaches art, at the Goggleworks and at RACC.

“Working on this portrait exhibit at the Humane Society, has been a great opportunity for me. I work primarily with acrylic paints and I usually have several series I’m working on at any given time. Occasionally someone asks me to make a painting of a dog or cat, which is so fun! I love when I get the chance to paint pet portraits. They bring so much love and laughter into our lives with their big smiles and silly antics.” – Suzanne Fellows

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 their fantastic art. We hope to see you there!
