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(s) of the Week are Bozo and Joker, a pair of stunning 5-month-old white and black kittens. Bozo is the one with the black “clown” nose..get it, clown nose, Bozo... anyway.





Staff at the Berkshire Humane Society say these boys are very active and climbing, getting underfoot and ready for mischief! Found as strays, the neutered brothers are shy at first, but then watch out, these guys will entertain you -- not for the faint of heart!


If you’re up for a pair of adventurous kittens, call Berkshire Humane Society at 413-447-7878 extension 124. If you’re not up to adopting rowdy kittens, you can adopt an adult animal at our shelter this Friday through Sunday for 50 percent off the adoption fee for the final weekend of Clear the Shelters.
