SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (Mass Appeal) - Meet Mass Appeal's pet of the week!
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 10 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Color: Brown Tabby & White
I am an indoor only gal who lived with a family that included a young child…half my age! Ha ha! I'm friendly to family and visitors, an affectionate couch potato, and who is happy to be your own personal lap warmer. Now don't let my maturity fool you, I love to play. A variety of toys will get me to chase and pounce with glee. I am currently residing in a colony room at Dakin hanging out with a number of other cats while waiting patiently for you to come and take me home.
It's a good week to do that because all this week - through Sunday - it's $5 Felines at Dakin adoption centers in Springfield and Leverett. Want to know why? There are a lot of us adult cats (six months and older) awaiting new homes at Dakin adoption centers in Leverett and Springfield. Just this weekend, 96 new animals arrived compared to 38 adoptions. Me-ow! And, you guessed it… most of the animals coming in were cats.
Dakin is helping save lives by reducing our adoption fee to $5. And that's what it's all about. They take a loss on adoption fees but we win…big time. Need a new BFF? I'm here waiting along with dozens of my closest friends.
$5 Felines all week at Dakin Humane Society!
Join us from August 26 through September 1, 2013 for this special life saving adoption event. All cats (six months and older) are available for adoption for just $5. All cats go home spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, tested and receive a collar and id tag plus a starter kit of food. All they need is YOU! More information is available online at www.dpvhs.org.
