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.

December is Cat Lover’s Month and this week's Pets of the Week are a lovely bonded pair in need of a home. Midnight and Oreo are two neutered males who were surrendered to Berkshire Humane Society because their owner lost their home. Oreo is a white and black 5-year-old long-haired cat  and is the more outgoing one of the pair. Midnight is a black and white tuxedo shorthaired cat who is 7 years old and is a bit shy. He can stand to lose a few pounds.

Both cats are affectionate and like to be held, sit on your lap and be held. They should not go to a home with small children as kids scare them, but they could get along with a calm dog. Oreo and Midnight qualify for a buddy discount, where the adoption fee of the second cat is half off.


Please call 413-447-7878 extension 124 if you are interested in adopting Oreo and Midnight.
