What we do
The Thomas J. O'Connor Animal Control and Adoption Center provides animal control services for the cities of Springfield, Chicopee, and Holyoke. Our animal control officers respond to routine service calls Monday through Friday 8am-5pm. Emergency response for ill, injured or aggressive animals is available 24 hours a day.
Our Adoption Center, located at 627 Cottage Street in Springfield, provides a second chance for adoptable dogs, cats and occasionally other types of critters. Adoption fees: Adult Cats over 5 months are $90 and Kittens under 5 months are $150. Pitbull type Dogs are $175, Adult non-pitbull type are $250, and Puppies under 5 months are $300 . All dogs and cats have received all vaccinations appropriate to their age, are spayed/neutered and have a microchip implant. For springfield residents dog adoptions will also include licensing for 1 year. Due to additional medical care occasionally we will need to increase the adoption fee of some animals to cover their medical expenses.
