WHMP Dakin Pet of the Week
WHMP Dakin Pet of the Week

Allie is a mystery girl!  Since she was recently found as a stray, we have no background on where she has lived, or with whom, but she is a very sweet, docile girl who would love to have a caring companion or family, plus a sunny windowsill to call her own.  She’s at that adorable age – 1 year – where she’s still got some kitten curiosity, but is maturing and will be a lovely companion.  As with all Dakin adoptees, Allie comes with a LOT of “extras” upon adoption (vaccinations, treatments, tests, full vet exam, spaying, microchipping, collar and ID tag).  She’s a perfect pick for our favorite pet of the week!
