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 Stella, a stunning grey and tan spayed tiger. This sweet girl was unfortunately abandoned by her owner and should go to a home without other cats.

Stella is 10-years-old, which means her adoption fee is only $50 this month in honor of Adopt A Senior Pet Month. All dogs and cats at least 7 years old at Berkshire Humane Society can be adopted to approved homes for only $50 in November.


If you're interested in Stella, call Berkshire Humane Society at 413-447-7878 extension 126 to set up an appointment.


Berkshire Humane Society also has a generous donor who will sponsor all small animal adoptions this month. Take advantage of these deals and give shelter pets like Stella a home for the holidays!
