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 Paige, a 3-month-old black female kitten who was an unwanted offspring of a pet. Paige is one of several kittens available now at Berkshire Humane Society, including four-month-old black siblings Jinx and Chloe.





If you are interested in adopting a kitten, please fill out an application available here and come to the shelter at 214 Barker Road in Pittsfield to see who is available.

Not all kittens appear on Berkshire Humane Society's website, there are often others at the shelter who folks can come and meet.

If you have questions, please call 413-447-7878, extension 124.
