Pet Corner: Hope

Come meet her at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption & Education Center.

Name:  Hope
Breed:  American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
Age:  2 years old
Gender:  Female
Color:  Tan


Meet Hope!  She’s a 2 year old pit bull mix who arrived at Dakin a little over a week ago.  Being only 2 years old, Hope has a good amount of energy, so she’d be a good pet for someone who can provide a lot of playtime and some outdoor fun for her.  Hope gets along with other dogs, but not cats, so she shouldn’t be in a home with kitties.  Her future adopter should have some experience with dogs, as Hope can use a little bit of training to learn some manners (plus she tends to rip up her stuffed toys and tries to eat the stuffing, so she’s got a mischievous side!)  Hope loves to play ball with people, and is looking forward to having a person or family to call her own.  Come meet her at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption & Education Center.

Dakin Foster Orientation Meeting – Thursday, November 3, 6pm.  Dakin Humane Society at 171 Union Street in Springfield

Dakin needs you!  We have lots of animals who need foster care, and you can be their hero.  Whether you’re tending to a pet in your home on a temporary basis until they’re well enough to return to Dakin for adoption…or choosing to become a Dakin “Special Agent” and finding the adopter of your foster pet through your own networking efforts, we need your help!  Come to this Dakin Foster Orientation where we’ll go over everything you need to know about these exciting opportunities to be a hero to an animal who needs you!  Visit to sign up for this event!
