Every Wednesday at 8:30 we are joined by John Perrault, Executive Director of the Berkshire Humane Society to discuss all the happenings at their Parker Road facility, as well as talk about their pet of the week.
Stella and Chuck are both 5-year-old parrots who came to the Berkshire Humane Society because their owner was moving. Chuck is mostly yellow with green highlights and stella is white with a stunning blue sky.
These beautiful birds will be adopted as a pair. January is rescue bird adoption month, so we’re offering Stella and Chuck to give them a home for the New Year and to raise awareness that we care about homeless feathered friends as well as furry friends.
This week, a Subaru blacksmith is sponsoring their adoption fee as Pet of the Week. If you are interested in adopting Stella and Chuck, please call our Small Animal Division at 413-447-7878, ext 124.
