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.

As of Wednesday morning, Berkshire Humane Society only has two dogs available for adoption, which is incredible. Both of those dogs are featured this week.

First up is Ragar, a one-year-old terrier/pitbull mix who was surrendered to the shelter because his family was moving. He likes women and takes a bit longer to warm up to men, but once he does, he's an angel. New people and experiences can be scary to him, but with a patient owner, he will thrive. A home without small children or cats would be best.


Next up is Arcade, a handsome 1 1/2-year-old Siberian Husky mix. He was surrendered to Berkshire Humane because he was not suited for apartment life. The shelter has had a lot of interest in him and is looking at our applications to find Arcade the right home. His ideal home would be one with someone familiar with the breed type, plenty of room to run and play, no small children and no cats.


In addition to telling us about Arcade and Ragnar, 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.
