With six children and three cats, any family would appreciate an opportunity to curb expenses. When they visited Dakin’s Community Spay/Neuter Clinic recently, this one got a chance to do just that.


Uninterested in cozy indoor life, barn cats thrive in the outdoors, and have a job to do; taking out the rodent population in the barns, stables, garages, warehouses or outbuildings in which they live.

Binx’s person couldn’t care for him any longer and he needs a home. Because he’s shy and quiet, people usually don’t notice him on the adoption floor, so he’s waiting for his new person to find him.

When Kimberly decided to adopt a new kitty for Christmas, she looked at the photos on Dakin's "Adopt a Pet" web page, searching for one who would be perfect. And there she saw Nala, a two year old orange tabby who was blind and missing an eye.

“I love being an advocate for dogs, and I think some breeds are misunderstood, like pit bulls, bully breeds, Rottweilers and shepherds too. This is a team effort, and Dakin’s the lead, so I’m happy to back up their efforts,” says Dakin Volunteer Ann Hurlburt.
