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 a group of kittens named Home Fry, Hash Brown, and Gnocci. These cuties were found living outside with their stray mother by Berkshire Humane Societies Community Cat Program volunteers and were fostered by a volunteer until they were old enough to be adopted.

This group is one of many litters of kittens the shelter has gotten in this year, not all of which appear on their website.

If you are interested in adopting a kitten, please Berkshire Humane Society at 413-447-7878, extension 124.
