The Montclair Animal Shelter will hold a Pet Adoption Day on Saturday, April 7, at Montclair Feed & Pet Supply, from 11 am to 4 pm.
On Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and 15, Pet Valu, located in Pompton Lakes, will host Pet Appreciation Weekend (PAW) to help raise money for animal shelters. Pet adoptions will take place from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, and from 11 am to 3 pm on Sunday. A pet psychic will also be available to do readings from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday. Every year, five to seven million cats and dogs enter U.S. shelters and many more remain homeless. Last year, PAW raised $250,000 for local animal shelters around the country and organizers hope to exceed that amount this year.
