WHMP Dakin Humane Society Pet of the Week

Meet Phoenix!

Phoenix is a 2 month-old (now-neutered) male who was found abandoned a month ago outside the front door of our Springfield location.

  • He’s pure kitten cuteness and pure kitten energy!
  • He’s bright eyed and quite healthy – looking forward to living in a new home with loving people

What else is happening at Dakin?

It’s Kitten Season — Dakin currently has a large number of kittens and cats looking for homes, so please consider taking a look at the friendly faces in both our Springfield and Leverett locations by visiting our web site at dpvhs.org and clicking on “Adopt a Cat.” If you’d like to help (but don’t want to adopt right now), we could really use your donations to help us feed all these extra faces right now. Dakin has a “Wish List” on amazon.com which you can access by going to Amazon and typing “Dakin Humane Society Wish List,” and of course, we’d always welcome your cash contributions which can be made online at dpvhs.org

 

Guardian Donation Program – Dakin has just launched its own Guardian Donation Program which allows people to make a monthly contribution to Dakin if they wish. It’s super easy to sign up, it just takes a minute to enter in your credit card number and contact info. Go to dpvhs.org and click on “Become a Dakin Guardian.”
