Dakin Offers Discounted Fees at Spay/Neuter Clinic Through August

SPRINGFIELD — Dakin Humane Society has announced discounts on its already-low spay/neuter fees for cats and dogs. From now through Aug. 31, there will be a $20 discount for dog spay/neuter surgery and a $10 discount for cat spay/neuter surgery for people who mention code SN1020 when booking their appointment. In addition, all dogs and cats will receive a complimentary nail trim.

With the summer season approaching, the importance of spaying and neutering pets intensifies, according to Dakin Executive Director Leslie Harris. “Mother Nature puts pet population in overdrive in the late spring and summer,” she said, “and it’s very easy to have one mishap result in an unwanted litter of kittens or puppies. Plus, having your pet spayed or neutered prevents several types of cancers that affect reproductive organs, and makes your pet’s behavior much more manageable … and enjoyable.

“Our clinic is staffed with professional veterinarians and technical assistants, and we have performed more than 58,000 spay and neuter surgeries since we opened nearly six years ago,” Harris continued. “We stand ready to help people take this incredibly important step by providing top-notch medical services for any budget.”

To book an appointment, call the clinic at (413) 781-4019, and mention code SN1020.

Dakin Humane Society provides shelter, education, advocacy, and assistance for animals and people in need from its two locations in Springfield and Leverett. The organization shelters nearly 6,000 animals every year and provides low-cost spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations to 12,000 more. Dakin 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.
