As the need for shelter and care for homeless pets continues to grow, we are collecting donations through our February Month of Giving Campaign to support two Pioneer Valley animal shelters in their work for our furry and feathered friends. Funds raised will benefit the Foundation for TJO Animals and Franklin County Regional Dog Shelter.
These amazing institutions provide food, water, shelter and a variety of critical services for thousands of animals in our region every year. Donations support:
- Veterinary care
- Medical equipment and testing
- Medications and medical supplies
- Toys, bedding and blankets that provide animals with comfort and enrichment
- 24-hour emergency response for ill, injured or aggressive animals
We encourage you to donate directly to these organizations or at any of our branches through Thursday, February 29.
About the Shelters
The Thomas J. O’Connor Adoption Center provides animal shelter and adoption services for the cities of Springfield, Chicopee and Holyoke. The Foundation for TJO Animals was formed to allow the group to better serve the shelter animals in their care through medical treatments and rehabilitation. This veterinary care allows pets to be brought to the adoption floor to hopefully find their forever homes.
The Franklin County Regional Dog Shelter is a volunteer-led group serving the communities of Franklin County. Its mission is to protect and improve the lives of stray, lost and unwanted dogs by offering a welcoming facility, providing care and finding good homes for each animal.
Thank you in advance for your support for these two Pioneer Valley animal shelters—let’s make those tails wag!
