The Montclair Times reports that volunteers used words such as “Dictatorship. Mean spirited. Abusive. Threatening.” to describe the shelter’s former and current management. Other complaints were of the time it would take to hire a qualified shelter director, the healthcare of the animals, and the facility’s need of repairs. Read the full story here.

“Asia” — our brown/sable Burmese cat has been missing since Wednesday, Nov. 26 on Greenview Way near Bellevue Ave. She was seen in the neighborhood as last as Friday, Nov. 28 but we didn’t know she was out of the house until we returned on Nov. 30. She’s a very slim, friendly, indoor cat with a distinctive Burmese “yowl”. If you have seen her — or if she has been sheltered by you — would you please contact Lauren at lngoodwyn@mac.com or call 973-746-7721.

Lost Cat

A reader writes in:

Buster was last seen on Saturday 11/22 on Alexander Avenue between Park and Grove Streets in Upper Montclair. She is a black and white tuxedo cat, about 9 lbs., with a lustrous black coat. She is very friendly and may come up to people’s doors or come to be petted (that’s how we got her). She has all of her claws but is exceedingly gentle; she has all of her shots and she spends most of her time indoors—she does not have a collar or microchip. She also may not answer to her name. If you see her, please try to befriend her and call Stephanie at 973-509-7618 or Al at 973-953-2377.

Montclair Pets For Adoption

BY  |  Thursday, Nov 13, 2014 12:30pm  |  COMMENTS (5)

Here are two adorable pets at the Montclair Animal Shelter in need of a loving home:

Montclair Animal Shelter


Rudy is a wonderful laid-back guy who is friendly with adults and kids. Rudy is about two years old but his youthful age belies his calm demeanor. He loves belly rubs, walks and mostly just to be loved because he loves giving you the love right back. Rudy appears to be a mix of terrier and American bulldog, and gets along very well with dogs about his size and larger. However, he should not be in a home with cats and small dogs. Rudy was found as a stray and has been at the shelter since June; he is very eager to find the right loving family.

Animal Shelter Volunteers & Staff Step Up Adoption Efforts

Nancy Willis with Tiger who was adopted and renamed Tony by is new family.

Thanks to the combined efforts of volunteers and staff at the Montclair Township Animal Shelter, 27 dogs have found homes during the past several weeks. Volunteers rallied behind adoption events, dog-walking, pet socialization, and other efforts to help shelter animals get adopted into loving homes. The volunteer efforts are especially important for the animals, as the shelter has been criticized for mismanagement and neglect in the past several months and the facility’s manager  resigned last month.

Shelter volunteer and Montclair local Nancy Willis spearheaded a major adoption campaign for dogs. She organized weekly outings to the Montclair Farmers’ Market with volunteers and shelter dogs so that the animals could be more visible and be able to interact with the public.

“We really wanted to get some of our dogs out in the fresh air where people gather so that folks could come and meet them and find out what truly wonderful and friendly companions they would make,” said Willis. Continue Reading

I will really miss their store. It was always so easy and fun to find a fun gift there. Walking into their store made me feel like I was transported into a faraway happy place!
