Dogs’ Feet Burned at Montclair Animal Shelter; Alleged ‘Illegal’ Medical Decisions Made

Montclair Animal Shelter

On August 18, Carolyn Sikes visited the Montclair Animal Shelter to donate supplies. Immediately, she noticed the strong smell of a cleaning agent in the air.  “It was breathtaking,” said Sikes, a member of the Montclair Animal Welfare Advisory Committee, at the committee’s meeting this past Wednesday, September 3. “Before leaving I went to the back to visit the dogs. Several had blood-red, severely irritated paws and toes, she said.

Sikes’ feet, meanwhile, clad in flip flops, began to burn. 

She told a shelter worker about the dogs’ feet, and, soon after, spoke to a local veterinarian, who told her “it was most likely an inappropriate dilution of a cleaning agent at the shelter,” Sikes recalled.

That educated guess was correct. In an email to Sikes two days later, she said, Township Manager Marc Dashield confirmed  that the cleaning agent wasn’t properly diluted. When she inquired what the agent was, no one returned her emails.

Missing Cat in Montclair

UPDATE: Pippi has been found.

A reader writes in about her cat who has gone missing:

Pippi has been missing since August 19th. She was last seen near Union St. and Orange Rd. I don’t think she has traveled far because she is currently injured. Her right hind leg is wounded and she cannot walk on it. Pippi is a very sweet cat but due to her injury she is very fragile and scared right now. She enjoys lounging in the shade and sleeping under bushes, if you live around Union Street and Orange Road please help and check your back yard for Pippi. She usually meows when you say her name.. She doesn’t have a collar. Please help and call Gabby with any information 973-960-7136.

The cops don't need to be everywhere at once, the penalties need to be harsh. It is not hyperbole JC. No one is slowing down for a few hundred bucks. 5k or 10k and you can be sure that "speed won't be creeping up" on folks.
