Dakin Humane Society Offers Half-price Small-animal Adoptions July 30

SPRINGFIELD — Dakin Humane Society announced it will reduce adoption fees for small animals by 50{06cf2b9696b159f874511d23dbc893eb1ac83014175ed30550cfff22781411e5} on Saturday, July 30 at its Springfield and Leverett adoption centers. Super Small Saturday will take place from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Springfield and 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Leverett.

Small animals available for adoption include (based on availability) rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, hamsters, rats, mice, gerbils, and birds. Dakin’s animal-care specialists will be on hand to help people choose which pet might be best for them.

“For people who find cats or dogs a bit much of a commitment, adopting a small pet can be a terrific choice,” said Nancy Creed, president of Dakin’s board of directors. “Many of these types of animals, like guinea pigs and rabbits, for example, are very interactive and should enjoy some supervised time outside their cages on a daily basis to play and bond with their people. Animals like these are especially ideal for young children who are looking for their first pet and are ready to learn about the care and handling of them.”

It is a local, nonprofit organization that relies solely on contributions from individuals and businesses that care about animals to bring its services to the community.
