“We could not properly care for the animals in our shelter without the tremendous support we receive day in and day out from our community. Because the county’s population is growing rapidly, so is our local pet population. This has a direct impact on our shelter, which continually faces overcrowding and the need for continued donations. Our citizens are the heart of the Berkeley Animal Center, and we are beyond grateful for their willingness to always provide,” said Heather McDowell, director of the Berkeley Animal Center.

Along the ride, the Animal Center will also have displays set up at each library location. Resources will be available on pet adoption, dog and cat care, heartworm prevention and more.

The Berkeley Animal Center relies on community donations to help care for animals awaiting adoption.
