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 pair of beautiful female cats, Lucy and Ethel who were removed from their home when their owner passed away. Lucy is 7 years old and has a tortoiseshell coloring, while Ethel is 8.5 years old, black in white in color, and a polydactyl meaning she has extra toes.

Lucy and Ethel came from a multi-pet household in which there were also three other cats as well as dogs, guinea pigs, and birds. They have lived indoors only and would be fine with other cats and pets in the home. Ethel is the more outgoing of the two, but they are both incredibly sweet and friendly.


According to the staff at Berkshire Humane, they will both require routine grooming to keep their coats in tip-top shape. The shelter is asking that Lucy & Ethel be adopted together as they are a bonded pair. Ask about their Buddy and Senior for Senior Program, where you can adopt both cats at a reduced adoption fee.

For more information about Lucy and Ethel and all the other pets looking for their forever home at Berkshire Humane give the shelter a call at 447-7878 or stop by and visit at 214 Barker Rd in Pittsfield.
