Cameron Animal Hospital

Looking to adopt a family cat? A cuddly cat at Cameron Animal Hospital, 417 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, needs a family.

Dolly is a 12-week-old black and white longhair female cat looking for love and attention. She was brought to Cameron Animal Hospital at 10 weeks old after someone found her alone, hiding in the bushes, after her mother was hit by a car. Now, Dolly needs a new home with a loving family. She was recently diagnosed with a congenital heart defect, so she needs a little extra attention. She is very playful and cuddly, and just wants to be close to someone.

Interested in meeting Dolly? Call Cameron Animal Hospital at 973-744-2052 or email here.

Eagle Scout Project Rejuvenates Montclair Animal Shelter’s Dog Area

 Clifford LindholmHere’s a great story from the Montclair Township Animal Shelter of a kid doing good:

The Montclair Township Animal Shelter (MTAS) relies on volunteers to help with a number of tasks throughout its two-story building – from walking dogs, to painting walls to doing laundry. While these chores are done by a series of volunteers every day, there are longer-term projects that require continuity in leadership and a longer commitment. One such project was the restoration of the yard and the outdoor dog runs.

Stepping up to take on this challenge was 17-year old high school senior and Eagle Scout candidate, Clifford Lindholm. After meeting MTAS Director Niki Dawson, Clifford thought the shelter and its canine residents would benefit from a revitalized yard.

“What the shelter does is important and I thought there was a need to help them,” said Clifford.

Missing Cat

A reader writes in:

Our 17 year old cat Petey slipped out of the house around 10 pm Sunday evening on Valley Rd and Glenwood in Upper Montclair. He is about 8 lbs and can be recognized by his right ear which is missing its tip. He has only been out a few times in his life and is probably hiding under a porch or in low bushes. He can also be very vocal at times so you may hear him. He is not declawed but is very gentle with strangers. Please call or text 973.768.6944 if you see him.
