Date of Arrival at Dakin:  October 12, 2014


Onyx is quite the goodwill ambassador at Dakin in Springfield!  He’s currently found in one of Dakin’s Cat Colony rooms, where he is usually the first one to greet visitors with a friendly meow that translates to “I’m the most awesome one here…pay attention!” Onyx was brought to Dakin with 2 other kitties with whom he lived because his family was moving to housing that didn’t allow pets.  He’s very good with other cats, affectionate and playful.  He doesn’t have experience living with dogs, however.  He lived with children of several ages, including a toddler, with whom he got along wonderfully.  He’s the kind of cat who will be very happy to join a new family…and he’s hoping he gets to do that soon.

Events/Other Topics

$5 Felines  – On Saturday, October 18, Dakin locations in both Springfield and Leverett will hold a $5 Feline event, as part of the ASPCA Mega Match-a-thon adoption promotion (presented by Subaru) where you can adopt cats over 6 months old for $5!  This takes place from noon to 6pm on that day, and each adoption includes all the extras that come with any standard Dakin adoption including a full vet exam, spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, vaccines, tests, treatments, an ID tag and collar and more!  Dakin thanks Steve Lewis Surbaru, our local Subaru partner in this promotion.
