When Dolly Mae passed away this year, her humans, Dee and Mike Lydick, wanted to honor her memory by helping needy animals in the community. The people who knew and loved Dolly raised $1,050 in addition to food, toys, and other supplies in her memory.
When their mom was hit by a car in Springfield, ACO Lori and some other dedicated animal folks saved 68 snapping turtle eggs and gave them a chance at life. Please watch for turtles in the road at this time of year!
Save the date! August 17th is our annual Ride Like an Animal Motorcycle Ride and poker run. Afterwards, join us for lunch, a concert, raffle prizes, and more!
Grant a Wish
Give TJO kitties something to purr about: their very own scratcher pad to use. Living at a shelter can be a little stressful or boring, but scratching is fun and it helps relax the cats. Help us be sure that every kitty will get one.
Striving to give each and every animal that comes through its doors a chance at a better future, the TJO Foundation lends a voice to animals who cannot speak for themselves. The Foundation supports and enhances the programs and medical services of the Thomas J. O’Connor Animal Control and Adoption Center through fundraising, public awareness and educational outreach. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit serving animals in Western Massachusetts.
