Cash: The Movie

May 5, 2010


We’re here with Cash, the 1 1/2 year old Black and Tan Coonhound that stars in the upcoming budget comedy, “Cash: The Movie”.  His character is a goofy secret agent, on a mission to save the treasures of his fellow canines.  We’ve sat him down for an exclusive interview as well as a showing of the first preview!

BHS News: Was this your first time in a lead role?

Cash: Woof!  Wooooof!  *He gnaws on a tennis ball*

BHSN: Fascinating.  Must’ve been quite the experience! What was it like having cats as co-stars?

Cash: Aroooooo!  *He play bows, tail wagging*

BHSN: We hear you did all your own stunts and learned some tricks just for your role.  What was that like?

Cash: *Tilts his head*  Aroof!  Aroof!  Baroo!  *He runs off to chase a stuffed toy*

BHSN: Well, folks, it looks like that’s all we’ll hear from the star today!  And with that, we give you the first-ever preview for “Cash: The Movie”.  (Be sure to turn those speakers on!)

Cash is available for adoption here at Berkshire Humane!  For more information, stop by the shelter or give us a call and talk to the kennel staff!

Daisy’s Day!

February 3, 2010

Come join us for “Daisy’s Day”!

Daisy the dog has been at Berkshire Humane Society for over a year! (She hit one year on January 29’th.)  We are throwing her a party and recognizing her stay.  There’ll be food and fun!  It’ll be held at…

1:00 on Thursday, Feb. 4
Berkshire Humane Society, 214 Barker Rd., Pittsfield

The following video was made by Daisy herself, so she could share with everyone what her days here at the shelter are like!

(Be sure to turn on your speakers!)

Music: “Plucky Daisy” by Mark MacLeod (

Daisy, and many dogs before her, have spent quite a long time at BHS.  (Jed, Charlie, and Jingles all spent over a year!  Tucker, Ziba, Corky, and Barnaby all spent 6 months or more.)  Often times, their stay is longer than usual because they’re waiting to find a special family for their unique needs.  Daisy is doing just that!  Call the shelter, send us an e-mail, or stop on down to find out more about Daisy!

MA Greyhound Tracks Closing!

January 4, 2010
Tom Greyhound Friends

Tom, one of Greyhound Friends' adoptables.

Back in 2008, Berkshire Humane Society encouraged MA citizens to Vote Yes on 3 and phase out greyhound racing in Massachusetts by 2010.  The state voted and it was a win for the dogs!

Now 2010 is here and the racing tracks are closing!  This means lots of these amazing pups are in need of new homes.

Greyhound Friends, located in Hopkinton, has many former racers up for adoption, including some from the most recently closed track, Raynham. You can see their adoptable pups here.  If you’re not in MA, you can find other organizations with adoptables through AdoptAGreyhound .  If you’d like to help out in a way that doesn’t involve walking or poop-scooping, check out Greyhound Friends’ wish list (Scroll all the way to the bottom for the list).

Thank you, Massachusetts, for helping to end greyhound racing and bringing these wonderful dogs into new homes.

Ziba’s New Digs!

December 13, 2009

Remember Ziba, our spunky terrier mix?   (If you don’t, watch her videos, “Ziba’s Unfinished Fairy Tail” and “Ziba’s Happily Ever After“.)

Well, she recently moved to our nation’s capital!  That’s right, Z is on to new things and enjoying daily adventures at the dog park and her new friends in Washington D.C.!

We’re all so happy to see Ziba’s doing well in her new digs!  Thanks again to Z’s family for keeping us in the loop.  What a lucky girl she is to have you!

The BHS staff love hearing about how our alumni are doing (and getting to see photos!), so if you’ve got your own alumni update or pics, don’t hesitate to send them in 🙂
