Pet Corner: Raisin

Name: Raisin
Breed: Domestic Shorthair mix
Age: 12 years old
Gender: Female
Color: Black

Raisin was found as a stray cat in the Turners Falls area and came to Dakin earlier this spring. She recently stayed with a foster family who adored her, but it was decided that she was best placed on our adoption floor so her future person or family will be able to find her more easily, so she’s back at our Springfield location.

Raisin is a staff favorite! She’s very friendly and loves being petted by everyone. She will wrap her paws around your neck when she’s being held, and she clearly loves the attention!
