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.

Today's Pet of the Week is Salem and Tigger. Salem (black and white medium hair) and Tigger (grey and white shorthair) are approximately 13-year-old brothers who are looking for a quiet and loving forever home. They have been at Berkshire Humane Society since early January and are now the shelter’s longest tenants.

They were surrendered after their owner’s health became too poor to care for them anymore. Tigger and Salem, along with four other senior cats, came in sweet but scared. They enjoy their nap time and would do best in a low-key home. They have never lived with children, and would do best in an adult only home.

Tigger is a little more on the independent side, and Salem, once acclimated, will not want to leave your side. Not only do these cats qualify for senior and buddy discounts, part of their adoption fee will be underwritten this week by Haddad Subaru.

The top five boy names and top five girl names are listed for each state, as well as the number of babies born in 2018 with that name.
