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 Rocket an almost 3-year-old orange male neutered cat. He was surrendered to Berkshire Humane Society because he does not like other pets, so should go to a home without other cats or dogs.

Staff at Berkshire Humane Society say Rocket has a lot of personality and is sure to be the life of the household wherever he goes. He likes to be held, but can be feisty and has a rough and tumble style of play. For someone wanting some entertaining feline companionship, Rocket is your man! If you are interested in adopting him, please call Berkshire Humane Society at 413-447-7878, extension 124
