Thank you for your continued support !

The Foundation for TJO Animals and the animals at Thomas J. O'Connor Animal Control and Adoption Center would like to extend a special thank you to Jonathan Hall and Toto

Over the past few years, Jonathan has donated the profits from the sales of his two books, Toto the Tornado Kitten and Oh Toto! Where Did You Go? In addition, Jonathan and Toto have actively participated in numerous Foundation events, including the signature events of the Ride Like an Animal Motorcycle Poker Run and Holiday Pawzaar, designed to help the Foundation raise funds for the medical care of the animals at the TJO Adoption Center. Jonathan and Toto are always a welcome addition at these events and are always a crowd pleaser!
