Emme was brought to Dakin in July because her caretaker passed away. Since then she’s been waiting for her next permanent home, and we’re all pulling for her to find her new family. She is a Chihuahua mix who is 7 years old, weighs 6 pounds, and has a black and brown coat.
If you’re seeking a lap dog extraordinaire, this is your girl! Emme is dainty and cuddly and was used to a fairly quiet household when she lived with her senior caretaker, but afterward she briefly lived with another family in a busier household and adjusted just fine after a couple of days. The family reported that Emme loved the teenagers but younger kids moved a little too fast for her. She lived with another dog and that went well, so if you’ve already got a dog, it’s a good idea to arrange a meet & greet with Emme and your dog.
Since Emme’s in foster care, call Dakin at 413.781.4000 to schedule a time. Don’t miss out on this pup… she’s very sweet.
Cats Fixed Free – Thanks to a generous grant from PetSmart Charities, Dakin is able to provide free spay/neuter surgery to cats that come from zip codes 01040 (Holyoke) and 01108 (part of Springfield). These 2 zip codes have been identified as having the highest homeless cat population in the region, which is why funding is available for cats coming from these areas. Please contact Dakin’s Community Spay/Neuter Clinic at 413.781.4019 to set up an appointment.
