Become a Guardian

Our Guardian Society members, through their ongoing support, play a crucial role in helping us meet the needs of animals in our community and allow us to be ready to weather any animal emergency. By joining the Dakin Guardian Society, you will join a compassionate group of supporters who share the same love of animals and want to make a difference in their lives all year long.

As a Guardian Society member you’ll receive:

  • Inside Dakin: Our print publication that provides an in-depth look at the lives changed through our innovative programs and services.
  • Guardian e-Newsletter: An exclusive email newsletter for Guardian members that contains photos, stories and news about the animals your generosity has impacted.
  • Early access to Dakin Signature and Virtual Events: The opportunity to purchase tickets to events like Barks & Brews before anyone else.
  • Cumulative Tax Receipt: Summary of previous year’s giving, mailed in mid-January.
  • Guardian Window Sticker: A sticker to alert police and fire personnel to the pets in your home.

Thank you for your interest in joining Dakin's Guardian Society and supporting pets and people with a monthly gift. Please reach out with any questions to Molly Biechele, Associate Director of Development at 413-781-4000 ext. 130 or
