About: Panda is a very affectionate 5 year old who arrived at Dakin recently when someone in her family developed allergies.  She’s very social and walks right up to visitors at Dakin to offer a greeting.  Like all Dakin cat adoptees, Panda comes with these essentials: rabies vaccine, spay or neuter surgery, leukemia testing, distemper/upper respiratory vaccine, worming, flea treatment, ear mite treatment, safety collar and ID, plus MICROCHIP.  


Certified Pre-Owned Cats! – This Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1, Dakin will have some special cats whose adoption fee will be $5 from 12:30-5:30pm in Springfield and Leverett. These are adult cats who tend to be overlooked by people who are seeking kittens or cats who are openly friendly and outgoing. These are the cats who are possibly older, or shy, or may have a medical condition. We frequently get happy notes and letters from folks who have adopted overlooked gems like these, so maybe there’s a perfect kitty waiting for YOU!

Primp Your Pit – In the month of August, Dakin will be providing a limited number of spay/neuter surgeries for pit bulls for only $20, thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities.  Call our Spay/Neuter Clinic at 413.781.4019 to book your August appointment, and your pittie will get a free nail trim as well!  Why pit bulls specifically?  Because they’re the breed found most often at our shelters, and we want to curb unwanted litters.
