We are "Open Admission"
Dakin Humane Society accepts all companion animals. While we prefer to accept animals by appointment, we understand that this is not always possible. We admit animals in all health conditions and with all temperaments. We do not turn animals away when we are full, nor do we turn animals away who we cannot place for adoption. We refer found dogs to the appropriate animal control facility.
