In this edition of Pet of the Week, we were introduced to Evie, a 6-month-old domestic medium hair kitten. Lee Chambers, Manager of Media & Public Relations at Dakin Humane Society, told us all about Evie and about other happenings at Dakin.
Location: Springfield: Dakin Humane Society
Breed: Domestic medium hair
Age: 6 months
Evie is just as friendly as she is pretty! She came to us recently from a pet transport from Arkansas (she’s a Dixie Kitty!), and she’s settling in beautifully to life in the northeast. Evie lives in a colony room at Dakin in Springfield where she’s the first kitty to greet all guests. Bring her home and let her charm you every day!

Thank you for your Valley Gives Day contributions!
Thanks to the incredible support of Mass Appeal viewers and other donor all throughout (and beyond) the Pioneer Valley, we had a wonderfully successful Valley Gives Day! Our goal, which was ambitious, was to raise $30,000, and by midnight when the day ended, we were just over $31,000! Just incredible! We want to extend sincere thanks to everyone for contributing…every gift matters.
