Welcome to the Humane Society of Berks County’s Fact Check page. We have created this Fact Checker, modeled on the well known Snopes.com, in order to rapidly answer statements forwarded to us may which contain confusing, misleading or even outright false information about animal welfare or HSBC. All statements will be rated with a TRUE, FALSE, SORT OF, or IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY rating and a complete explanation given. On this page we will answer any statement made which is specifically directed at our organization or about animal welfare issues generally. We will not fact check any statements made about any other specific organization or its services.
