$5 Felines from Dakin

Adapted from a Dakin Humane Society press release:

The Pioneer Valley's Dakin Humane Society announced yesterday that it will be participating in the 2014 ASPCA “Mega Match-a-thon” adoption weekend by presenting a $5 Felines event on Saturday, October 18th, at both its Springfield and Leverett locations, from Noon until 6PM.

The 2014 ASPCA "Mega Match-a-thon" event, presented by Subaru, is a nationwide effort to save the lives of more shelter animals during the weekend of October 17-19, 2014.  Dakin's $5 Felines event features the reduction of adoption fees to just $5 for cats older than six months.  Every cat adopted will have received the standard Dakin benefits including micro-chipping, a full veterinary examination, age-appropriate vaccinations and treatments, spay/neuter surgery, a safety collar, and an I.D. tag.  Steve Lewis Subaru of Hadley is a promotional sponsor for Dakin’s event.

According to Dakin’s Executive Director Leslie Harris, “We’re pleased to offer this event to the public as part of the ASPCA ‘Mega Match-a-thon,’ which is dedicated to helping so many wonderful pets and people come together as newly-formed families.  It’s very rewarding to be saving so many animals’ lives and enriching those of their adopters.”

For more information, please visit or call the Leverett shelter at (413) 548-9898.
