Local Kids Get Big Surprise During Donation Delivery

Damian and Oren wanted to do something special to help support animals in need. They gathered the money they received from their bar-mitzvah and purchased so much pet food from Dakin’s wish list, it filled up an entire cart.

This kind and generous gesture brought them to the front doors of Dakin’s Animal Resource Center, for what they thought was a donation drop-off...

As they loaded up their gifts onto a cart for delivery into the shelter, Kris, an Animal Resource Counselor appeared with an animal carrier in hand. He announced, while handing the kids a starter food pack, that Nova, a tuxedo kitten, would be going home with them! Damian and Oren’s parents had quietly arranged Nova’s adoption privately with Dakin’s staff. Check out the video below to see the big reveal!

Nova will be joining this awesome family and their resident cats. A big thanks from all of us at Dakin for Damian and Oren’s generosity and compassion for animals in need. We’re wishing you a lifetime of fun and happy memories with Nova!
