Pet of the Week: Button the cat

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – In this edition of Pet of the Week, we were introduced to Button, a 2-year-old Domestic Shorthair Mix cat. Lee Chambers, Manager of Marketing and Communications for Dakin Humane Society, told us all about Button and about other events going on at Dakin.

Domestic shorthair mix
Location: Springfield: Dakin Humane Society
Gender: Female
Age: 2 years

Button came to Dakin back in May when she was found as one of several cats in a hoarding situation. She has had some health setbacks but is healing up and is ready to go to a home. Button has been though a lot of changes in the past two months, and is very shy by nature, so she may take a little while to feel safe in her new home, but with her sweetness and quiet demeanor, she’s bound to be a terrific new companion. Come see her at our Springfield Adoption & Education Center.
ANDif she’s still not adopted by Friday, July 28, her adoption fee will be only $5 that day!
