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.
