Dakin Reduces Cost of Dog Spay Surgery Through March

SPRINGFIELD — During the month of March, Dakin Humane Society is reducing the regular cost of female-dog spay surgery by $25 as part of its ‘Spay Date’ promotion.

The surgeries are conducted at Dakin’s Community Spay/Neuter Clinic at 171 Union St., Springfield, and appointments can be booked by calling (413) 781-4019. To take advantage of the discount, callers must reference ‘Spay Date’ when booking the surgery.

“Pet parents who take this step are not only helping their dog’s long-range health outlook, they’re joining in the fight against animal homelessness,” said Corey Kurtz, interim director of development and marketing at Dakin. “Our clinic has conducted more than 66,000 spay/neuter surgeries in its seven years of operation, and we’ve got highly-qualified veterinarians who can help. Springtime is when people and their dogs will be outside more and coming into contact with each other, so it’s an ideal time to consider spay surgery for female dogs.”

Dakin Humane Society delivers services that improve the lives of animals in need and the people who care about them from its two locations. The organization shelters, treats, and fosters more than 20,000 animals each year. The nonprofit organization relies solely on contributions from individuals and businesses to bring its services to the community. For more information, visit www.dakinhumane.org.
