Meet George, our Pet of the Week!

Mass Appeal

George is looking for a home this Valentine’s Day. Lee Chambers from Dakin Humane Society is here to introduce us to this handsome gentleman!

George is our man of mystery.  He came to us from a shelter in Georgia, and we have no backstory on him.  He’s 8 months old, which is that nice spot in a cat’s development where most of the kitten shenanigans are history, and he’s starting to mature into adulthood!  In addition to being stunningly handsome, George is a pretty happy fellow who will probably fit nicely into any home.  Come meet him at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption Center.

Upcoming Events:

Puppy Kindergarten Class Now Starting on February 20!  Still time to enroll!
Dakin’s Puppy Kindergarten Class was scheduled to start on February 13, but the aftermath of the storm pushed the start date back a week.  There are still some spots open in the class.  
Five weekly lessons beginning February 20th and ending March 20th for puppies who are 8 weeks- 5 months old.  Classes to be held at 9:30am at our Springfield Adoption Center.
We’ll help your pup begin to learn to:
    Respond to basic obedience cues
    Be comfortable with handling
    Walk attentively on a leash
    Learn to be comfortable around other people and new things
    Play nicely with other pups
    And more!
Part of each session will include tips & troubleshooting for common puppy behaviors like housetraining, nipping, jumping. Sessions may include supervised puppy play, which will give your pup some positive exercise & help you practice having him pay attention to you!
Proof of first series of vaccinations is required to register (or at first session).
