Pet of the Week: Conan

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Meet Mass Appeal’s pet of the week!

Name: Conan
Breed: Domestic Shorthair Kitten
Age: 2 Months Old
Sex: Male
Color: White and Brown

About Conan:
He was brought into Dakin as a stray found in Chicopee. Conan is this week’s Pet of the Week for a very important reason…to let everyone know that Dakin has lots of kittens looking for homes right now!  We’re in the thick of kitten season, and we’ve got several young kittens in both our Springfield and Leverett locations.

With all these new arrivals – our need for cat and kitten food is higher than usual.  If you’re interested in making a donation, please visit and do a search for “Dakin Humane Society Wish List.”  There you’ll see all the things we need most, in order of importance. You can either order it through Amazon (and it’ll ship here – nice and easy!) or you can see what we’d like, and bring it to either of our locations.  If you’d like to make a monetary contribution, you can visit and click on the “Donate Now” button on our home page.
