(MASS APPEAL) – It’s time for Mass Appeal’s Pet of the Week and we’re introducing you to Piper. Lee Chambers is here from Dakin Humane Society with more.


We do not have any history on Piper’s previous life or experiences. Being a youngster, she will likely do well in any home. Piper should be introduced slowly to any resident animals in your house. Come in and meet Piper and our other kittens during open adoption hours Tuesday – Saturday 12:30pm – 3:00pm.
