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 Princess and she desperately needs a new castle. She’s coming up on one year in the care of Berkshire Humane and needs to find her forever home!

Currently housed at Berkshire Humane Society’s satellite feline adoption facility in Great Barrington, Princess is an 11-year-old domestic shorthaired cat. This pretty black and white tuxedo cat is a senior, but you would never know it. Unfortunately, she was abandoned by her former owner. She’s a bit shy at first and should go to a home without other cats. She’s never lived with children, so a household with adults or older children would be best.

Princess is one of several senior cats available at Berkshire Humane Society and through Friday, adoption fees of all adult cats are 50 percent off. If you are interested in adopting Princess, please call 413-447-7878 extension 124.

Tomorrow, Wednesday the 28th is World Rabies Day, a day to raise awareness for rabies elimination worldwide. Locally, we're announcing a FREE RABIES VACCINE and FREE MICROCHIP clinic for cats and dogs at Haddad Subaru, 652 East Street in Pittsfield on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29th from 9 to 11 am, to be followed by the drawing for the Choose Your Subaru raffle at 1 pm.
