Pet of the Week – Cowabunga
Pet of the Week – Cowabunga

Cowabunga is a 2 month old black and white kitten.

Cowabunga has had herself a tough start in life. She was abandoned in front of Dakin’s building in mid-June…barely 4 weeks old. Thanks to some terrific foster caregivers and the dedicated staff at Dakin, she is coming along very well and is now old enough and healthy enough to go into a lovely home. She will charm you with her high energy and playful personality. Who could resist once you look into those eyes? Cowabunga is in our Springfield location, and is one of the kittens whose adoption fee will be deeply discounted for one day only…this Friday, August 1. Details are below…

Dakin Kitten Adoption

Dakin Day & $5 Felines – Friday, August 1 will be a special day for Dakin Humane Society. That’s when we celebrate our 5th anniversary at our Springfield location (we still have our Leverett location, of course). Mayor Domenic J. Sarno will proclaim it “Dakin Day” in Springfield, and to celebrate, we’re offering big discounts on adoption fees for Friday, August 1 ONLY. Here’s what we’re doing:

 

  • $5 adoption fee for any cat (older than 1 year)
  • $100 off the adoption fee of black or black & white kittens (under 6 months old)

 

Of course, all the standard Dakin “extras” come with your new pet including vaccinations/testing/treatments, microchipping, spay/neuter, vet exam, collar and ID tag.

Thinking of adding a new animal friend to the family this summer?  Please consider adopting. 

There’s someone waiting for you at Dakin Humane Society Adoption Centers in Springfield and Leverett. Check out up-to-the-minute listings at www.dpvhs.org!
