About Rossasita:
Rossasita is as cute as they come. She’s a darling kitten with just the right mix of cuddly and playful. As with all Dakin kitten adoptees, she comes with an assortment of essentials: rabies vaccine, spay surgery, leukemia testing, distemper/upper respiratory vaccine, worming, flea treatment, ear mite treatment, safety collar and ID, plus MICROCHIP.

Small Animals Abound!
Right now, Dakin has a large amount of small animals for adoption…much more than our usual amount! Check out our website – – to see a variety of hamsters, rabbits, gerbils, chinchillas, ferrets, birds, mice and even rats! Rats can be terrific pets for several reasons, believe it or not!

Matching Donor Program
From now through November 15, an anonymous donor will match any monetary donation to Dakin Humane Society up to $100,000!  This is an amazing act of kindness that will make everyone’s donation go TWICE as far for the next few weeks.

Cats Fixed Free in Zip Codes 01040 & 01108
Thanks to a special grant from PetSmart Charities, Dakin is able to offer free spay/neuter surgery to cats living with families in the zip codes 01040 (Holyoke) & 01108 (part of Springfield).  These two zip codes were selected because Dakin was receiving the highest number of homeless cats from those two specific areas.  If anyone lives in a different zip code and is having trouble affording standard vet fees for spay/neuter surgery, call Dakin’s Community Spay/Neuter Clinic at 413.781.4019 and we will work with you to make this affordable.
