Dakin Humane Society Announces Matching Challenge Campaign
SPRINGFIELD — Dakin Humane Society has announced the launch of a matching challenge campaign to run through Nov. 15. Until then, every monetary donation to Dakin will be matched dollar-for-dollar by an anonymous donor up to a total of $100,000. Contributions can be made by mail or securely online at www.dakinhumane.org.
“This is a remarkable gift,” said Dakin’s executive director, Leslie Harris. “And it couldn’t come at a better time. We’ve had a very busy summer and autumn season with lots of animals brought in, and we’ve been incurring significant cost-of-care expenses. This campaign will help us offset these and other expenditures.”
In other news, Dakin unveiled a completely revamped website on Oct. 15. With a new domain name, www.dakinhumane.org, the site offers a more photo-centric design, easier navigation features, and, as with the previous site, up-to-the-minute photos and information about adoptable animals. The site was developed by Bright Cloud Studio in Westfield.
