Dakin receives grant from MA Animal Coalition
by Lee Chambers
Dakin Humane Society is happy to announce they are a recipient of a recent grant from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC) “I’m Animal Friendly” license plate program. Funds will be used towards Dakin's low-cost spay and neuter services offered at its Community Spay/Neuter Clinic, the largest in New England.
“As Dakin continues to reinforce the importance of spay/neuter surgery among our communities, the more significant the need becomes to have resources available for those who need them,” said Dakin's Executive Director Carmine DiCenso. “The MAC's support of our efforts is always incredibly important and appreciated.”
The “I’m Animal Friendly” license plates are a program of the Massachusetts Animal Coalition. Funds are dispersed annually to organizations who demonstrate a need for and provide low-cost spay/neater services. Dakin's Community Spay/Neuter Clinic opened in 2009 and has conducted nearly 80,000 surgeries since then.
