Every Wednesday at 8:30 Slater and I are 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.

Today John talked about a Missy, a small 7-year-old brown tiger female cat. She was surrendered to the Humane Society back in January because of the health of the owner. Missy is an independent cat, so she doesn’t love a lot of doting from people or other cats or dogs. Because of that, she’d do best in an adult household. The shelter is hoping someone with cat experience and patience will take in this girl and give her a chance to settle in and trust again.

In addition to telling us about Missy, John reminded listeners that the shelter is still operational but has made adjustments to keep the public and staff safe and healthy. The shelter is not currently open to the public, but animals can still be viewed in private showings by contacting Berkshire Humane Society directly. Despite COVID-19 fears, they have continued to successfully place animals this week, in addition, to keep lost or stray animals safe.

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