Weekly Vaccine & Microchip Clinics

Dakin Humane Society offers affordable vaccine and microchip clinics every Saturday beginning at 9am at our Springfield Adoption & Education Center at 171 Union Street in Springfield

Call 413-781-4019 for more information.


Things to know ahead of time:

  • The vaccine clinic is walk-in only. No appointments are necessary or available.
  • Our clinic opens at 9am, although frequently people begin lining up before 8am. 
  • We are able to provide services for the first 40 patients in line. 
  • The clinic ends when the last (40th) patient is seen, which is usually between 11 and noon. 
  • All patients must arrive by 10am.
  • Please bring your pet's entire medical history, regardless of how old the information is or where your pet was seen by a medical professional. This helps us provide you the best possible recommendations for your pet. It also prevents over-vaccinating or under-vaccinating your pet and helps reduce your cost.
  • We are located at 171 Union Street, Springfield. Please use the main Adoption Center entrance, NOT the side Spay/Neuter Clinic entrance.
  • Dogs must be on leash. Cats must be in carriers.
  • We accept cash and credit cards only (no checks).

Having a Veterinary Relationship

Dakin's clinic is staffed by licensed, trained veterinarians and veterinary technicians, but we are not full-service veterinary providers. All of the services we offer are preventive and will keep your pets healthy, but we do not have the equipment or supplies to diagnose or treat sick or injured pets. We are happy to refer you to a full-service provider in your area. When you visit a Dakin clinic, one of our caring veterinary technicians will walk you through our services to assist you in deciding what your pet needs.

Help Us Spread the Word

We want to make sure that any animal that needs a vaccine has access to one. Help us spread the word by printing out these flyers and posting them in areas where pet lovers congregate.
