High-Volume Sterilization Clinic Reduces Homeless Animal Population

Four years ago this month an animal welfare agency arrived in Springfield Massachusetts and announced an ambitious goal—prevent dogs and cats from becoming homeless and euthanized.  The Dakin Humane Society says it can now guarantee a home for every healthy homeless animal in the Pioneer Valley.

There are fewer animals these days at the Dakin Humane Society’s adoption center on Union Street in Springfield and that’s a good thing according to Candy Lash, the society’s manager of marketing and communications.

Information about the spay and neuter clinic and animal adoption services can be found at dpvhs.org
