Join us for Pawzaar 2023!

Pawzaar is the Foundation for TJO Animals annual craft fair. Once again, we will be holding the event outdoors, in the parking lot of the Thomas J. O’Connor Animal Control & Adoption Center on Saturday, September 30th from 10am-3pm.

There will be 30 vendors from around the Pioneer Valley, raffles, Jeannies Weenies and Fat City Kid Food Trucks, music provided by Visual Sound Productions, pet merchandise for sale, baked goods and more.

Stop by to visit Foundation ambassador, Toto the Tornado Kitten!

Proceeds go directly to the medical care and treatment for our TJO animals in need. Save the date, bring your family and friends, and most important, we look forward to seeing you on the 30th!
