Our Mission 
Dedicated to helping animals in the shelter at TJO receive the care and training they need to bring them to the adoption floor, and from there to their forever homes. 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.
