Adopt a cat for $5 at Dakin Humane Society on Friday

The Leverett location will be opened from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – You can take a new friend home on Friday at the Dakin Humane Society’s $5 Feline Adoption Day.

More than a dozen cats will be up for adoption at the event as part of Petfinder’s “Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week.”

Help clear the shelters to make room for more animals from southern shelters that need to relocate from the recent hurricane devastation.

“Dakin has taken in several transports of those southern pets, and more are coming. These new faces, combined with the pets we receive locally, have significantly added to the pet population here at Dakin, especially of felines. That’s why we’re holding this adoption event this Friday.” According to Dakin’s Executive Director Carmine DiCenso

Dakin Humane Society will reduce the adoption fees to $5 Friday, September 22 on select adult cats 6 months and older. Each cat will be spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
