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.

Our Pet of the Week this week is Lovey is an 11-year-old yellow Labrador retriever mix. She and 15 other dogs, mostly seniors, were brought to Berkshire Humane Society on a transport from Georgia, where they were rescued from a hoarding situation. The dogs were kept in a kennel separate from the home of the hoarder, but Lovey and the other dogs are all friendly and would love to live out their days in a warm, safe loving environment.

Lovey would do fine in a home with other dogs, cats, or quiet children. She has an unknown neurological problem that will need to be monitored. It makes her a bit unsteady on her feet but doesn’t seem to phase her. Because veterinarians don’t know how the issue will progress, Berkshire Humane is looking for a hospice home where Lovey can be pampered and kept comfortable. Lovey is the perfect name for upcoming Valentine’s Day – she’s a sweetheart. Lovey and all of our senior transport dogs say, “Won’t you be mine?”


To learn more about Lovey and all the other pets looking for their forever home, contact the Berkshire Humane Society at 214 Barker Road in Pittsfield, or give the shelter a call at (413) 447-7878 ext 126.

Due to COVID-19, the Berkshire Humane Society is open and all services are available by appointment only for adoptions, surrenders, and our Pet Food Bank.
