Pet of the Week: Evie the kitten

Mass Appeal

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.

Name:  Evie
Location: Springfield: Dakin Humane Society
Breed:  Domestic medium hair
Gender: Female
Age: 6 months
Color:  White/black


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!
