Megan from the Humane Society of West Michigan wasn't able to come into the studio yesterday morning due to COVID-19, but we talked on the phone about Bert!

Meet Bert! Soft-spoken and gentle, Bert's easy-going and affectionate personality makes him a great companion. For fun, Bert loves to chase feathers, toy mice, and string. Bert's guilty pleasure is binge-watching YouTube videos of birds, and has recently taken a liking to fast-paced anime! Bert is not really a fan of being picked up but oh, does he love the scritches! Noggin to rump, back to belly, Bert loves to be pet! This sweet boy is hoping to find a family that is as gentle and attentive as he is.
If you're interested in adopting Bert, please visit our website at, or contact our adoptions department at!
