About Angel & Kilo:
Angel & Kilo are very bonded…so much so that they’re a “2 Fur 1” adoption.  That means we’ll let you take both of them home for one adoption fee, because we need to keep these two together.  They grew up in the same household and were brought to Dakin when their family couldn’t care for them anymore.  These are two very sweet doggies who are champion snugglers.  Here are their stats:  They’re both 10 years old, they’d be well-suited in a quiet home with children 13 years or older, they have lived with cats before and are both housetrained.  Angel and Kilo would be ideal pets for everyone…even someone without dog experience, as they’re low maintenance animals.  They love leisurely walks, couch-warming and snuggling.  And they’re waiting to meet their new family at Dakin’s Springfield location.  Come see these adorable girls…they need your love!


SN1020 Spay/Neuter Discount – Dakin is offering $20 off spay/neuter surgery for dogs, and $10 off spay/neuter surgery for cats for surgeries booked and performed by July 31, 2015.  Plus, dogs and cats eligible for this discount will also get a free nail trim at the time of their spay/neuter!  To take advantage of this reduced fee, you must refer to “SN1020” when you phone 413.781.4019 to book your dog or cat’s spay/neuter surgery.

Orphan Babies Supplies Needed – It’s springtime, and Dakin is seeing a LOT of tiny kittens and puppies who aren’t old enough yet to be adopted.  These orphan babies need special supplies for our volunteers and staff to keep them healthy and thriving, and we’re in need of many items.  For folks who want to help, please visit our just-created wish list that has all the things these babies need:

No table foods, moldy foods, poultry bones
No chocolate
No grapes & raisins
No alcoholic beverages
Be careful with ornaments, ribbons & tinsel
Holiday plants can be dangerous
