PITTSFIELD, Mass. – The Berkshire Humane Society will rename its animal shelter the Dr. John C. Reynolds Adoption and Education Center in honor of the late veterinarian.
The million dollars raised will secure the right to name the animal shelter located at 214 Barker Road.
“We were fortunate to know Dr. Reynolds as a veterinarian, board member of the Berkshire Humane Society and friend,” said chief executive John Perreault. “His death was a shock to us and to many in the community. We miss him and are grateful to Dr. Reynolds’ family for honoring him in such a meaningful way while providing others with the opportunity to also do.”
Dr Reynolds has been closely associated with the Berkshire Humane Society since he established Pittsfield Veterinary Hospital in 1996. He became a member of the society’s board of trustees in 2012 and four years later he was named Volunteer of the Year by the Berkshire Humane Society.
“Having this shelter named after Dr. Reynolds would have meant the world to him,” Perreault said. “He will carry on his important legacy for many years to come.”
Every donation to the Dr. John C. Reynolds Adoption and Education Center will be matched, dollar for dollar, doubling the impact of each donation.
