Every Wednesday at 8:30 we're joined by John Perreault, Executive Director of the Berkshire Humane Society to discuss all the happenings at their Barker Road facility, plus talk about their Pet of the Week.

This week's Pet of the Week is Bailey, a sweet 14-year-old black lab mix whose owners had a change in lifestyle so they surrendered him to Berkshire Humane. Staff thought they had a new home for him, but unfortunately he did not get along with the puppy of a family member visiting the household.

Bailey is a friendly gent, but he should be the only pet in the home. He loves going for walks and snuggling. Due to his advanced age, he’d be most suitable for families with teenagers and older.

For Adopt a Senior Month, Bailey’s adoption fee, along with all other pets at least 7 years old, is only $50 through the end of November. Also, through Saturday, adoption fees are waived for all approved adopters who are currently in the military or veterans in honor of Veterans Day.
