Chip was part of a litter born on a porch to a homeless cat in Chicopee. He was brought into Dakin when he was very little.


Dakin will present “Dogs & Storks,” on July 31, at 6pm at our Springfield location on Union Street. This workshop will show people with dogs how to prepare for the arrival of a new baby (especially beneficial for first-time parents). Positive, practical and fun solutions are offered to help families with dogs prepare for baby both before and after its arrival.

Preparing ahead decreases worry about whether or not things will go smoothly. The two-hour workshop covers topics like reading your dog’s body language to recognize signs of stress, and creating a safe environment.

The cost to attend is $25 for two people maximum, and we ask that people not bring their dogs or babies with them. Visit to sign up online, which is required.
