Dakin Cat Colony Rooms Open!
Ever wonder what has been going on in the spacious, sunny lobby area at our Springfield Adoption & Education Center? The space used to be the lobby of the animal hospital that closed in 2007. When Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society purchased the building in 2009, we made it an immediate goal to convert this lobby space into cat colony rooms as part of Dakin's Three Year Plan to Adoption Guarantee.
Thanks to the generosity of the late Barbara Sullivan and the good folks at Five Star Building Corp., the new cat colony rooms are a colorful, sun-lit space with three multi-level living spaces for cats. This week, we moved the cats in and welcomed our clients to visit with them.
Not only does the space give our cats room to stretch, climb, and bask in the sun, it also gives our clients more room to sit and chat with our adoption counselors.
Come on down and visit!
