The Berkshire Eagle reports a number of local cannabis dispensaries are supporting the Berkshire Humane Society with volunteer work and donations.
Last month, Temescal Wellness donated $1,700 to the shelter, its largest donation yet.
"The staff here at Temescal are all animal lovers," dispensary manager Megan Wendling-Kane said. "We allow guests to bring their dogs inside instead of leaving them in the car, we know many of them by name and enjoy seeing them on a regular basis so when it came to volunteering, Berkshire Humane was a logical choice.
The dispensary began volunteering at Berkshire Humane in December 2019.  Executive Director John Perreault said a Temescal staff member would come at least once a month to assist with shelter cleaning, a job that most people don't want.
