Walk-In Medical Clinic

Located at 171 Union Street, Springfield, MA

What is the purpose of the Dakin Walk-In Clinic?

  • To help pet owners in our community who are unable to go to a full service animal hospital for non-urgent medical problems.

What makes us different from a full service animal hospital?

  • Our services are very limited.  We do not have all the medications and testing that a full service animal hospital has.  
  • We do not have the equipment, staff or resources to handle an urgent medical situation. We are not an emergency hospital.  
  • Our hours of operation are very limited.  The doctor and support team are only available during very specific times.  Walk-ins will only be accepted during specific days/hours.
  • We will only return calls for patients who have already been seen at the Walk-In Clinic; the number for these clients is 413-781-4016.  You can also email us at medical@dakinhumane.org. Emails are checked Tuesday through Thursday.  It may take up to 24 hours for an email response.
  • By law, all animals must be current for rabies vaccination. Either bring your pet’s current paper rabies certificate (not tag), or a rabies vaccine will be given for $12 at your visit.  

The Walk-In Clinic is its own separate department at Dakin.  The Adoption Center and the Spay/Neuter Clinic do not have access to the Walk-In Clinic records.  Any requests for records or record information is only available during the Walk-In Clinic hours.

Currently we are only able to see the first 10 animals that arrive.  Patients will be accepted between 9am-9:30am only at the Springfield Adoption Center’s main door.  Clinics will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Feb & March. More dates to follow.
