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 Papa a four-year-old neutered male cat who is currently available at Purradise, Berkshire Humane Society's satellite adoption and boarding facility in Great Barrington.

Papa is a beautiful white and black cat who is shy at first, but once he warms up to you, he’ll never leave your lap. He was found as a stray and would be OK with other cats, but we don’t know about dogs. Because he is so shy, a quieter, adult home would be best for Papa.



If you are interested in him, please call Purradise at 413-717-4244 or visit Purradise at 301 Stockbridge Road (across from McDonald’s) in Great Barrington.
