Beanies for Beanie

Grey kitten wrapped in large blanket
Beanie is a kitten who was rescued by Dakin’s Kitten Street Team just days before a snowstorm in January 2022. She was brought to Dakin for care along with her three siblings. By raising money for Dakin, you can qualify to receive a blue beanie hat that not only keeps your head warm but also helps the Kitten Street Team bring kittens in from the cold.

By fundraising for Dakin Humane Society, you are helping give animals the food, shelter, and medical treatment they need. Every dollar you raise goes towards creating happier and healthier lives for animals right here in our community. Helping animals and people is a value deeply rooted in our mission and is the reason why many of Dakin’s programs and services exist. We envision a world where services that support the human-animal bond are accessible to all, and companion animals are no longer vulnerable.
