PITTSFIELD, Mass. — "The Pet Connection," hosted by Steve Caporizzo, WTEN News10's chief meteorologist, is sponsoring an adoption promotion that includes the Berkshire Humane Society beginning the week of Dec. 4  and continuing until the funds are exhausted.

"Pet Connection," which highlights adoptable shelter pets around the New York Capital Region, will sponsor every homeless pet for $50 off the adoption fee.

The event also includes Purradise, Berkshire Humane Society's feline adoption center located at 301 Stockbridge Road in Great Barrington.
 
The goal is to have 380 pets adopted and "Home for the Holidays" during the month of December at BHS and other animal shelters in the Capital Region. Caporizzo will be promoting the pet adoption sponsorships each night during his weather forecast segment. He will also keep track of how many pets are being adopted for his viewers.
 
The Berkshire Humane Society adoption counselors will be on hand during regular hours of operation to assist potential adopters with finding the best cat or dog for their home.  The Pittsfield and Great Barrington locations will be open on Saturday, Dec. 22, and Sunday, Dec. 23, closing for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. To view current available pets, visit the shelter's website at www.berkshirehumane.org.
