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 daily 7am-10pm.  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 -

Kittens under 12 months of age are $150, adult cats over 12 months of age are $90.

Puppies under 12 months of age are $300, adult dogs over 12 months of age are $250 .

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 a dog license valid from April 1-March 30. Due to additional medical care occasionally we will need to increase the adoption fee of some animals to cover their medical expenses.
