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, a pretty 10-year-old black and white tuxedo cat with a small white dot on her nose. Unfortunately she was abandoned by her former owner.

Princess is a bit shy at first, and is a real princess, she wants to be queen of the castle with no other cats in her home. She has never lived with children, so should not go to a household with young kids. As a senior cat (7 years old or greater), Princess’ adoption fee is only $50 through the end of November and will go home with a special senior package in celebration of adopt a senior pet month. Please call 413-447-7878, extension 124 if you are interested in Princess.
