CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - Name: Good Day
Breed: Persian Mix
Age: 8 years
Sex: Spayed Female
Date of Surrender: 6/2013
Reason for Surrender and Description:
I was found wandering near a college in Springfield and brought to Dakin by a Good Samaritan. Good Day is an interesting name to be sure. I guess the staff at Dakin believes that any day I spend with my new family will be a Good Day for me and I will do my level best to be sure I make it a Good Day for them.
I am well loved by the entire staff. I'm affectionate and talkative. If you ask me a question, I will do my best to answer. If you ask again, I'll keep on answering as many times as you want. I'm a social eater which means I eat better when loved. Stop by my cage and pet me, I'll get up and have a nibble.
In addition to my adorable face, you may notice my head is tilted to the left. When I arrived at Dakin, my left ear was bothering me and it was discovered that I had polyp inside. Dr. Katie Spaulding was able to remove most of the growth. Oh, well…my little head tilt just adds to my charm. Which is as abundant as my eyes are blue!

Dakin in Need of SPAN (Safetey Plan for Animals) Foster Caregivers
Dakin depends on our foster care volunteers to help us save lives. In addition, Dakin needs foster care volunteers to help people in our community as part of our SPAN (Safety Plan for Animals) program. SPAN assists people in our community who need foster care for their own animals on a temporary basis due to hospitalization, rehabilitation, escape from domestic abuse, or in time of natural disasters.
The SPAN program has helped prevent many animals from becoming homeless and is often the inspiration for people to get well quicker or seek personal safety when needed.
SPAN foster families are most often needed for dogs and adult cats. Please call us if you are interested in helping the people and animals of our community. 413-781-4000.
