Date of arrival at Dakin: 8/6/14 (Newborn)


Cuatro was brought to Dakin as a newborn stray found in Amherst. He was cared for by a foster family as well as Dakin’s medical staff who brought him along very nicely to become the healthy, happy 3 month-old boy he is today.

All he needs right now is a caretaker or family to appreciate how loving and adorable he is!  As part of his adoption fee, Cuatro is neutered, micro-chipped, given the most up-to-date vaccinations and treatments, and will come with a gift certificate for a free examination at a participating veterinary office.

$25,000 Challenge – Dakin was recently given a challenge by an anonymous donor to raise $100,000 by November 15 in order to receive a dollar-for-dollar match by the donor. We met that figure last week, so now the donor has added another $25,000 to the pot and has challenged us to raise that much more by this Saturday, November 15. So every monetary donation to Dakin before this Saturday will be matched by this donor, thus doubling your impact!

Dogs & Storks – This Saturday, November 15, Dakin will present the Dogs & Storks Workshop at our Springfield location at 10am.  This terrific program teaches families with dogs how to prepare for baby before baby arrives!  You’ll learn how to introduce your dog to the baby, how to read your dog for signs of stress and how to create a safe environment for everyone.  The cost is $25 for two people to attend, and is for adults only…please don’t bring dogs or babies!  Visit to register or call 413.781.4000.
