Lost Cat

A reader writes in:

Buster was last seen on Saturday 11/22 on Alexander Avenue between Park and Grove Streets in Upper Montclair. She is a black and white tuxedo cat, about 9 lbs., with a lustrous black coat. She is very friendly and may come up to people’s doors or come to be petted (that’s how we got her). She has all of her claws but is exceedingly gentle; she has all of her shots and she spends most of her time indoors—she does not have a collar or microchip. She also may not answer to her name. If you see her, please try to befriend her and call Stephanie at 973-509-7618 or Al at 973-953-2377.

Montclair Pets For Adoption

Here are two adorable pets at the Montclair Animal Shelter in need of a loving home:

Montclair Animal Shelter


Rudy is a wonderful laid-back guy who is friendly with adults and kids. Rudy is about two years old but his youthful age belies his calm demeanor. He loves belly rubs, walks and mostly just to be loved because he loves giving you the love right back. Rudy appears to be a mix of terrier and American bulldog, and gets along very well with dogs about his size and larger. However, he should not be in a home with cats and small dogs. Rudy was found as a stray and has been at the shelter since June; he is very eager to find the right loving family.

Animal Shelter Volunteers & Staff Step Up Adoption Efforts

Nancy Willis with Tiger who was adopted and renamed Tony by is new family.

Thanks to the combined efforts of volunteers and staff at the Montclair Township Animal Shelter, 27 dogs have found homes during the past several weeks. Volunteers rallied behind adoption events, dog-walking, pet socialization, and other efforts to help shelter animals get adopted into loving homes. The volunteer efforts are especially important for the animals, as the shelter has been criticized for mismanagement and neglect in the past several months and the facility’s manager  resigned last month.

Shelter volunteer and Montclair local Nancy Willis spearheaded a major adoption campaign for dogs. She organized weekly outings to the Montclair Farmers’ Market with volunteers and shelter dogs so that the animals could be more visible and be able to interact with the public.

“We really wanted to get some of our dogs out in the fresh air where people gather so that folks could come and meet them and find out what truly wonderful and friendly companions they would make,” said Willis. Continue Reading

Ima (pronounced E-mah) is an indoor cat, but she is missing and must have slipped out yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, 11/4). She is black and white with a pink nose. She was wearing a floral collar. Ima is very friendly but possibly skittish as she is hungry and lost.

A volunteer with the Montclair Animal Shelter writes:

This dog came in a couple of days ago with a red collar on with a gray stripe. He looks like he definitely belonged to someone. He was picked up by animal control in the Nutley/Montclair area. Could you post his picture in the hopes that someone is searching for him? He is being held at the Montclair Shelter.
