SPRINGFIELD — Dakin Humane Society will be reducing adoption fees for adult cats over 6 months old to $5 on Wednesday, Aug. 31, at both its Springfield and Leverett adoption centers. Hours in Springfield are 12:30 to 5:30 p.m, while hours in Leverett are 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. The cats selected are those who have been waiting for adoption for several weeks.
According to Executive Director Carmine DiCenso, “summer — and even fall — are typically seasons when we have lots of cats and kittens available for adoption. At this point, we have a large number of cats looking for new homes. We are holding this adoption event to give these terrific adult cats the attention they deserve, as well as the chance to find new families.”
Other animals available at Dakin include dogs, kittens, guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, ferrets, rats, and mice. A full listing of adoptable animals is available at www.dakinhumane.org.
