Animal shelters deliver a vital service in our community. They provide food, water, shelter, care and medical services to approximately 6.3 million animals across the country every year, securing forever homes for more than 4 million. Throughout the month of March, we’re collecting donations to support two local animal shelters in their work for the furry friends of the Pioneer Valley.
Funds raised will benefit the Foundation for TJO Animals and Franklin County Regional Dog Shelter. We encourage all Freedom Credit Union employees and members to donate directly to these organizations or contribute $1 or more at any of our branches through Friday, March 31, and we’ll hang a “paw print” in our window to show your support.
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 on behalf of our furry (and feathered) friends!
