Adoption Center Hours have changed in Leverett for the winter months
Dakin Humane Society will temporarily change over to winter hours in Leverett. The Leverett Adoption Center will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 12 to 4:30. Fewer animals and cold, snowy weather have greatly reduced the number of people coming to Leverett, so for the rest of winter these hours will remain in effect. Look for a return to regular hours in April when spring comes to Leverett!
Springfield Adoption Center hours will remain the same. Click here to see hours and directions for both locations.
Cats Fixed Free!
For a limited time, cats can be fixed FREE at the Dakin Humane Society as part of grant received from Petsmart Charities®. People with pet cats and those caring for neighborhood strays or feral cats who live in Holyoke (ZIP code 01040) or Springfield (ZIP code 01108) can take advantage of this special offer.
Dakin Humane Society provides shelter, education, advocacy, and assistance for animals and people in need.
