Best Local non-profit - Dakin Humane Society

Dakin is always a sure Best of the Valley favorite, but Executive Director Carmine DiCenso doesn’t take winning for granted. “It feels great to win. It’s wonderful to know people like what we do.” A leader in animal welfare in both the region and the nation, Dakin partners with other animal welfare organizations across the country, including the Dixie Dogs project. What’s new for Dakin? DiCenso says his staff is working on doing more to keep pets with their families. “We will have support programs that are focused on keeping pets at home rather than being put up for adoption.” And Dakin is one of 10 shelters nationwide participating in the Jackson Galaxy Cat Pawsitive Pro Program. Its goal is to increase feline adoption rates and training to enrich the lives of cats in shelters. That sounds purrfect.
