Thomas J. O'Connor Animal Control and Adoption Center
The mission of the Thomas J. O'Connor Animal Control and Adoption Center is to provide comprehensive animal control services to our communities for the protection of animals, public health and safety and the environment. Where appropriate, the Center will responsibly place unclaimed animals into new adoptive homes. We provide temporary housing for over 4,000 stray and abandoned animals each year. We respond to nearly 4,500 animal related field calls annually. Our staff and facility provide animal control services to three area cities--Springfield, Chicopee and Holyoke. We are one of the largest regional animal control facilities in New England. It is our goal to make this region a model for other animal control services.
Our primary commitment is to public health and safety. We are well-versed in rabies and zoonotic (transmissible between animals and people) diseases for the safety of our citizens. We respond to animal related calls 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including holidays.
