Diamonds in the Ruff Thrift Store
Dakin's Diamonds in the Ruff Thrift Shoppe sells gently used pet supplies, including crates, leashes, collars, coats and toys. We also have a wide selection of gift items, including candles, housewares, dishes, toys, jewelry, and much more. The Thrift Shoppe is open Tuesday through Sunday from 12:30 to 5:30 and is located in the atrium (just past the lobby) in the adoption center building at 171 Union Street in Springfield.
We are always seeking donated items to be sold. Since the store is run by volunteers, 100% of the income stays right here for our services and programs to help animals, generating approximately $50,000 each year! Donations are tax deductible and can be brought to either Dakin location (Springfield or Leverett) during adoption center hours.

- Crates, carriers, beds

We are also seeking new or gently used household items including (but not limited to):
