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.

This week's Pet(s) of the Week are Taz and Tabby, two young domestic shorthair female cats. Tabby is one year old and is mostly black, but has a spot of white on her chest and belly. She has a flea allergy, so she must be an indoor cat. Taz is a 1.5-year-old tuxedo kitty and is the more adventurous one of the pair. They are both a little shy at first but are sweet and playful. They came to Berkshire Humane Society with another cat because the owner’s landlord did not allow that many cats. These two are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. As part of the buddy program, the adoption fee for the second cat will be half off.

In addition to telling us about Taz and Tabby, 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 Taz and Tabby 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.
