Name: Nomo (Cat)
Breed: Domestic Medium Hair/Mix
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Female
Color: Grey coat

About Nomo:
Hi there, and welcome to my profile! I came to Springfield via another shelter, so my bags are already packed and I am waiting to go to a home who appreciates how truly special I am. I am a striking gal with a relaxed, easy going cattitude. I am super-silky and take immaculate care of my beautiful coat. I am a curious kitty who likes being petted and will give a few head bumps for extra attention. Since I am completely ready to settle down, why don’t you stop by and take a look-see at me….? I can’t wait to meet you!


Name: Dover (Dog)
Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier/Mix
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Male
Color: Tan/White coat

About Dover:
I was a stray dog in East Hartford, then I was brought to Dakin. While it’s impossible to know what my life was like before, the staff here finds me to be a good fellow who loves to play. My history with children is unknown, so it’s best if a family with kids comes to meet me first. I’d love to be your companion and enjoy fun summer walks, hiking, and all kinds of outdoor fun!


Name: Zoe (Cat)
Breed: Domestic Short hair/Mix
Age: 1 year old
Sex: Female
Color: Orange/White coat

About Zoe:
Hi! My name is Zoe, and welcome to my page. Not much was known about me before I came to the shelter because I was a stray. Since I’ve been here, I’ve proven that I am “Miss Personality.” Meeting and greeting is one of my favorite thing to do. I love to play and, when it’s time, a good chin-scratch is always appreciated. And window gazing is also part of my repertoire; there’s just so much to see in the big world. I am on the smaller side and may even have a smidge of Siamese in me. If you are ready to try out some new adventures with me, I am ready to go home!


Name: Vanilla (Cat)
Breed: Domestic Short Hair/Mix
Age: 1 year
Sex: Female
Color: Brown coat

About Vanilla:
I have the cutest little moon pie face – just look at my adorable cheeks! I have been in foster care with my kittens and now that they are ready for homes of their own, so am I. I’m a friendly girl who enjoys the company of other cats. I would also be fine living with calm, friendly dogs. I like playing with toys and then lounging in the sun for a nice nap, but it would be wonderful to have a human napping with me. Please come visit me!


Name: Smiley – rabbit
Breed: Angora Rabbit
Age: 3 months old
Sex: Male
Color: Tan/White coat

About Smiley:
How cute am I? I was one of three young bunnies brought into Dakin from South Hadley just over a week ago, and while they take good care of me here, I really want a permanent home where I can be spoiled in the best possible ways! Angora rabbits like me were popular pets with French royalty in the mid-18th century, then we started appearing in America in the early 20th century. Adopt me and I’ll make you feel like American royalty!
