$5 Felines at Dakin This Saturday!

Press Release from DPVHS:

This Saturday, September 17, 2011, Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society adoption centers in Leverett and Springfield will host $5 Felines from 12 noon – 4:30 p.m.  It’s late summer and Dakin has many cats and kittens…all in need of new homes.  What’s better than adopting a four-legged feline family member to love?  Adopting a new friend who is already spayed or neutered; is microchipped; has received age-appropriate vaccinations and testing; who goes home with a collar and id tag, and a starter kit of food…all for just $5!

“Dakin is committed to finding good homes – and saving lives.  People who come to animal shelters to adopt do so because they want to help save lives too,” says Executive Director Leslie Harris.  “Homeless cats have the greatest need for loving homes, especially at this time of year.  And while every animal welfare organization depends on adoption fees to support the work they do for animals and people in their community, it is also important to save lives.  With our adoption centers full, we know this special event motivates people who might be considering adoption to actually come on in and add to their family.  We’re hoping for many happy matches this Saturday.”

For those who cannot adopt but want to help,donations of dry or canned cat food for Dakin’s Pet Food Pantry or cash donations are welcome to help offset funding lost through this special event. More information is available online at or by calling 413-781-4000 in Springfield or 413-548-9898 in Leverett.
