A second surgical team, headed by Dr. Rebecca Carroll, has been added to Dakin's Community Spay/Neuter Clinic.

The popularity of high quality, affordable spay/neuter surgery has resulted in the addition of Dr. Carroll to the Dakin staff.  She joins Dr. Sherri Therrien, who began working as a spay/neuter veterinarian at Dakin in 2009.  

In a typical week, our two teams can perform about 250 spay/neuter surgeries.  The clinic is modeled after the nationally recognized ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance program, which is a leader in high quality, high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter.  

Spay/Neuter fees for dogs are based on the animal’s weight and regularly range from $175-$225. Now through December 31, 2019, appointments booked online for small male dogs, weighing 24 pounds or less, will be reduced from $175 to $125 as part of Dakin's Happy Neuter Year special.  The surgery can take place in either 2019 or 2020.  To book an appointment, click here.

The fee for cat surgery is $100, and rabbit surgery is priced at $225. Booking a spay/neuter appointment can be done online via Dakin’s website, and is the easiest way to schedule your pet.  The Clinic can also take bookings over the phone by calling (413) 781-4019.  Full payment is expected at the time of booking.

Other treatments available at the time of surgery include microchip identification, nail trim and parasite protection (for cats and dogs), as well as a feline leukemia/FIV test for cats, and a heartworm test for dogs.

Dakin's Community Spay/Neuter Clinic opened in 2009 and has performed over 90,000 surgeries.
