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.

This week's Pet of the Week is Fry Kid, a 1.5-year-old tan chihuahua mix who was taken from a bad situation with two other chihuahua mixes, Hamburglar and Grimace. See a theme going on there? The other McDonald’s characters were adopted, but Fry Kid is still looking for a home. This sweet boy is a bit shy at first, but once you gain his trust, he is loving and playful.

Because of Fry Kid's shyness, he should not go to a home with children under 8 years old. He would probably do OK with cats or other dogs. If you are interested in adopting Fry Kid, please call Berkshire Humane Society at 413-447-7878, extension 126.

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
