Financial gifts allow us to put funds where they are needed most. Your employer might match your contributions, like MassMutual, Travelers, IBM, and Verizon do. The only way to find out is to ask.

Paws Finding Peace

Losing a pet can be incredibly heartbreaking. Our beloved pets are by our side through life's ups and downs, offering constant love, loyalty and support when we need it most. Saying goodbye is always difficult, but being able to say goodbye surrounded by family at home can help minimize stress and anxiety.

Dr. Lauren Atkins founded PAWS FINDING PEACE because she wholeheartedly believes that providing a peaceful goodbye is one of the greatest gifts we can give our pets. Dr. Atkins was the veterinarian at the Thomas J. O'Connor Animal Control & Adoption Center for many years and it is her wish to give back.

She has generously arranged to donate a portion of her proceeds to us, the Foundation for TJO Animals, so we can continue to support the medical needs and services for the many animals who call TJO their temporary home.

Thanks To Our Pawsitively Awesome Sponsors!
