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(s) of the Week are Dino and Angel, two one-year-old guinea pigs because March is Adopt a Shelter Guinea Pig month. Dino & Angel were surrendered to Berkshire Humane Society after they were purchased from a pet store by their previous family, only to discover that one of the family members was allergic to them.

Dino is mostly white with a cute black mask around his eyes and black haunches. Angel is mostly black with a small white stripe on his head and a white chin. He also has a band of tan and white on his mid-section. These two boys are shy due to a lack of handing in their former home, but with more human contact here at the shelter, they are beginning to come out of their shells. They would benefit further from being in a home. Dino and Angel are being adopted out together with an adoption fee of $55 for the pair.

Berkshire Humane Society has several small animals available at the shelter now, including a rabbit and mice, and some rats (available soon) that they took in from another shelter that had an overabundance of small animals.

To learn more about all the animals 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.

The Berkshire Humane Society is now back open to the public for regular hours with masks required and social distancing in place.
