Rabies Clinics

According to the American Humane Society, it’s important to keep your pet’s rabies vaccine up to date. Puppies and kittens should receive their first rabies vaccination at 12 weeks of age. Pets must be vaccinated again in one year, and then a three-year rabies vaccine is generally administered during the rest of your pet’s life.

The Montclair Health Department has scheduled winter 2016 rabies clinics for the dates below:

Lost Dog

Update: Ruby has been found

A reader writes in:

Our 4 year old beagle, Ruby, got out around 9am yesterday morning (Feb 4) without her collar on. She is about 20 pounds, extremely friendly, and microchipped. She also has a tattoo (like a serial number) inside her right ear (we adopted her from a school). We are in Bloomfield (corner of Maolis and Clinton).

If you could please post/share this, we would really appreciate it.



Montclair Township Animal Shelter Staff and Volunteers Save the Day — and Several Lives

Montclair Township Animal Shelter Kudos to the Montclair Township Animal Shelter staff and volunteers! This news in from MTAS:

A cat was abandoned in the shelter’s wooden donation box some time overnight. When shelter volunteers opened the box to put away donations, they found mom and what appeared to be three stillborn kittens. Mom and the three kittens were rushed to the shelter tech room for an exam.

While examining the kittens, it was noticed that one appeared to twitch, starting a race against the clock to attempt to warm the three ice cold babies.

Rushing into action, volunteers grabbed heating pads, warm fleeces, while staff held the kittens in their armpits to warm them up, frantically rubbing them to stimulate their circulation.

Within twenty minutes, mom had delivered two more kittens and the three kittens who were previously thought deceased were now warm, squeaking loudly and looking for mom!







Playful Kitten at Cameron Animal Hospital Needs a Family

Cameron Animal Hospital

Looking to adopt a family cat? A playful kitten at Cameron Animal Hospital, 417 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, needs a family:

Love is a 3-month-old tiger kitten who loves to play. He was brought to Cameron Animal Hospital at just 2 weeks old with concussion and bite wounds. He had some nerve damage in his front leg, but after physical therapy he has greatly improved. He can play hard, so we do not think he would be the right fit for a home with small children. He is good with dogs and cats, and would fit in well with a playmate.

He does have a microchip with up to date contact info, and has been reported missing to the chip company, Montclair shelter and PAWS.
