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:

  • No appointment is necessary. While the clinic does not open until 9:00 am, the line can form early and is outdoors for most - if not all - of the wait.
  • Services are limited to the first 40 animals in line each week.  We recommend you arrive before 8:00 am to secure your place in line.
  • Even after 9:00 am, depending on your place in line, your wait could be an hour or more.
  • Dogs must be on leash. Cats must be in carriers.
  • We accept cash and credit cards only (no checks).
  • If a pet is up to date on his rabies vaccine, please bring records.
  • We are located at 171 Union Street, Springfield. Please use the main Adoption Center entrance, NOT the side Spay/Neuter Clinic entrance.

Services and Fees for Dogs and Cats

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.
