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 Pets of the Week are Tiki and China, 13-year-old spayed domestic shorthair female cats who came to Berkshire Humane Society because their owner passed away. Both cats are brown tigers, with China having a lot of white on her chest and underside.


These two seniors were littermates and have literally known each other their whole lives, so will be adopted out together. They qualify for senior and buddy discounts and a portion of their adoption fee is being underwritten by Haddad Subaru this week. Because they have never lived with children, adult home would be best. Both cats have been declawed in the front, so they will not be placed in a home with dogs.

If you are interested in adopting Tiki and China, please call 413-447-7878, extension 124.
