Black Fur-iday Adoption Event Sends 91 Pets Home!

by Lee Chambers

Dakin’s Black Fur-iday Adoption Event, the most-anticipated of the year, was a huge success! Doors opened at both our Springfield and Leverett adoption centers at 12:30pm on November 24, and by day’s end, 91 pets had found new homes.  Several adult cats had $5 adoption fees, and the adoption fee for "smalls" (non-dog and non-cat pets) was reduced by 50%.

  Congratulations to everyone who changed a life by choosing to adopt that day, and huge thanks to our volunteers, staff and our event sponsors, Steve Lewis Subaru and the ASPCA.
