Adopt a Pet

We're so glad you stopped by to visit our pets for adoption!

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - MARCH 16, 2020

In response to concerns about COVID-19, adoptions through Dakin will temporarily be conducted by appointment only. Please call us at 413.781.4000 to inquire about adopting a pet and we will return your call within 48 hours in the order in which it was received.

At any given time, Dakin has between 150-400 pets in our care. The animals you see in our adoption areas and on the adoption pages of our website are just a few of the many pets in our care— the rest are not ready for adoption yet, and we're working on the best way to help them.

Learn more about our adoption process and our Dixie Dogs.

Can't adopt now but want to help? Sponsor an animal!
