Dakin WHMP Heavy Petting Pet of the Week

Cuervo and Kamikazee ~ Cuervo is, neutered male, white and gray.  Kamikazee, spayed female, is a dilute tortoiseshell. 

Cuervo and Kamikazee came to Dakin from a rescue organization and went into foster care until they were ready to be adopted.  Now available, this adorable pair is approaching 3.5 months.  What’s really great about kittens this age is their little personalities have begun to develop so adopters have a pretty good idea what kind of a fine feline they will grow into as they become adults.  

There are a lot of wonderful kittens of all varieties awaiting new homes at Dakin.  So many , in fact, that Dakin is announcing Kitten Kaboodle week.  Through Sunday, August 4 all kittens under six months are ½ off the regular adoption fee.  That’s right, you can adopt a single adorable kitten like Harley for $125 or a pair (maybe Cuervo and Kamikazee) for $200!  Every kitten goes home spayed/neutered, microchipped, receives age appropriate vaccinations, testing, collar and id tag and a starter kit of food.   In other words…the whole Kitten Kaboodle!

 Also going on at Dakin: Mutts & Mimosas – Sunday, August 25 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. An event for you and your dog to benefit for Dakin Humane Society.  Quonquont Farm & Orchard, Whately, MA.  Booksigning by David Rosenfelt, music by Maple Ridge Bluegrass, fantastic silent and live auction items (including a chance for your dog to be featured in a future work by David Rosenfelt).  Walking trails, pick your own orchard, and other fun activities.  For more information or to purchase tickets online go to www.dpvhs.org or call 413-781-4000 x136. Rain or shine event.  PLEASE COME OUT AND SUPPORT DAKIN…YOUR LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETY!

Also,  Primp Your Pit – Get your pit bull fixed for just $20 during August.  Limited availability.  Call the Dakin Community Spay/Neuter Clinic to make your appointment 413-781-4019!
