Looking for a cat to adopt? A playful kitty at Cameron Animal Hospital, located at 417 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, is in need of a family:
Rolly is friendly, cuddly, and playful. He likes to rub noses when he first meets people, and thinks there’s nothing better than a belly rub. He likes to play, but is relatively calm and laid back. While he loves other cats, his litter mates at Cameron Animal Hospital have all been adopted, which has left Rolly quite lonely. He would love to be adopted with a buddy. Rolly is the perfect kitten for anyone looking for a true companion, or a family looking for a new addition. He’s great with kids of all ages, he loves other cats, and he thinks dogs are OK, too.
To see Rolly, please call Cameron Animal Hospital at 973-744-2052 or email here.

About 6 months or so ago, a lighter grey cat with darker grey markings (swirls) showed up in the back parking lot of an apartment building on Park Avenue in Bloomfield (Glen Ridge border). He would cry all of the time and follow me around. He is definitely someone’s cat. I finally got him in a carrier and took him to the vet. He was neutered previously, but was not micro-chipped. He is shy, but sweet and loves to eat. Please call or text me if this is your cat (973.768.6564)! We’d love to reunite him with his family.

Looking for a cat to adopt? A cute an cuddly kitty at Cameron Animal Hospital, located at 417 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, is in need of a family:
If you are looking for a slightly different cat, Mercy is for you! A complete teddy bear who loves to give hugs, Mercy is friendly, sweet and relaxed. He is a handsome orange and white tiger with a stripe on his tail. He makes funny faces, but that just adds to his character and charm. He came to Cameron Animal Hospital with a severe injury to his foot, but is healing nicely after treatment. He is about a year old, has been neutered and is up-to-date on his vaccines. He is not a fan of dogs; however, with a slow introduction, he would be fine with other cats. He is great with children, loves his belly rubbed and is hoping for a forever home!
To see Mercy, call Cameron Animal Hospital at 973-744-2052 or email here.

Montclair Township Manager Timothy Stafford announced yesterday the appointment of Nicole Dawson as acting Montclair Animal Shelter Director. Dawson will serve at the Shelter until the position can be permanently filled.
Dawson brings to the shelter extensive knowledge and experience with animal welfare operations management. Most recently she served as the Interim Director for the Helmetta Regional Animal Shelter after the NJSPCA took receivership of the agency. While there, she developed a business plan for a financially sustainable and humane shelter which was presented to the borough’s council. Prior to that Ms. Dawson was the Executive Director at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter, where she helped triple adoption numbers, significantly increased TNR rates, and raised the awareness level of the organization, thereby helping double donations over previous years.

Vince Ascolese, Director of Animal Services at the North Jersey Humane Society Rescue Center in Bloomfield, spoke at a Town Hall meeting Tuesday evening about the organization’s ambitious plans for the former Bloomfield Bukowski Animal Shelter.
North Jersey Humane Society, a nonprofit organization, took over the shelter on November 15, 2014 and reopened it as a “true no-kill shelter.”
After being introduced by Mayor Venezia, Ascolese introduced his team to the audience, which was made up of a mixture of animal advocates, former Bloomfield shelter volunteers, and other interested residents, as well as Councilman Nick Joanow, and Township Administrator Ted Ehrenburg, who had managed the shelter for the town prior to its takeover by the North Jersey Humane Society.
