The Montclair Township Animal Shelter has launched a “Send Macy to a Sanctuary” fundraising campaign to help Macy, a favorite pooch at the shelter.
Macy has significant fear issues as a result of her background which make her unadoptable. Help us send her to Spirit Sanctuary, which provides a home for life for unwanted, unadoptable, sick and old dogs.
Making a donation is super easy. Simply visit Macy’s campaign page and click donate. Any amount makes a difference!

Summertime is here and kitten season is in full swing. In order to make room for additional incoming cats and kittens, North Jersey Humane Society in Bloomfield is holding a Summer Fling Adoption Event, featuring special half-price adoption fees for all cats and kittens adopted between now and Monday, August 31, 2015.
Fees during the event will be $50 for kittens (normally $100) and $25 for adult cats (normally $50). All cats are up-to-date on routine shots and are spayed/neutered.
The shelter has cats and kittens of all sizes and colors, including some beautiful black cats with gold or green eyes, calicos and tabbies. NJHS urges the public to come visit the shelter, meet the volunteers and dedicated staff members, and of course, possibly adopt a new best friend.
Those who cannot adopt can help by sponsoring an animal until the animal is adopted, or by donating to the shelter. All donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible. Continue Reading

A reader writes…
Please keep an eye out for my friends’ cat. My friend is currently traveling, and her elderly indoor cat got out and has been missing since after 10PM Saturday night. His name is Bailey, and he’s a thin orange and white tabby with green eyes. He is also deaf. He is not wearing a collar.
Bailey would be originating from Gray Street between Grove and Ridgewood Avenue. He is very sweet and friendly. Thank you.
Update: Myla came home!
Another cat, Myla went missing last night, from Lansing Place off of valley road, south of Kings. She’s an indoor cat.

Update: Mo has been found!
Mo is a long haired tuxedo cat — very gentle and friendly, but will probably not approach a stranger. He is a house cat so if he is lost, he will be very frightened, especially being out in the rain.
He was lost on Hawthorne Place.

Truffle took a walk with his family — on leash — at Mills Reservation on Friday only to be attacked by two off-leash dogs. Truffle’s family shared the following on Montclair Watercooler and want to get the word out to others about the dangers of dogs going off leash:
On Friday afternoon, my husband and I took our nine year old, her friend and our dog for a walk at Mills Reservation. Our dog, Truffle, is almost 2 years old and he’s a bundle of fun. We all love him dearly. It was our first time with him at the reservation. Truffle was on-leash, frolicking with my daughter and her friend, and having a merry time until two off-leash dogs set upon him. One of them attacked Truffle and after what seemed like an eternity, but was likely only a minute or two, the owners caught up to the two dogs and managed to bring them under control. The girls were terrified, crying and screaming. I was screaming. My husband helplessly tried to extricate our dog from harm. Truffle was very scared, but he seemed otherwise ok after we quickly looked him over. We high-tailed it back to our car and it was only once we were on the way home that we realized he was bleeding. I took him to the animal hospital and sure enough, he had two puncture wounds, which required several stitches. Fortunately, Truffle is going to be fine. We humans, however, will not soon forget the horrifying vision of our beloved dog being attacked. Continue Reading
