In the interest of the health and safety of members of the community and Animal Shelter staff, the Shelter is closed to the public until further notice, but the Montclair Township Animal Shelter needs immediate foster homes and adopters for shelter animals.

- Click for the form to foster or adopt a dog.
Keep in mind that if you are making a commitment to foster, you must consider the commitment could be for upwards of three months, says Liz Morgan, Montclair Animal Shelter director, adding that foster parents must be “prepared to ‘make due’ with an animal that may not be perfect. You must be prepared to be patient if there is a potty accident while the animal is acclimating. You might need to do ” crate rotations” to give everyone time with family. We will work with you to make an appropriate match for your home. Residents are encouraged to email rather than calling. Please know completing an application is the first step towards obtaining a pet for adoption or foster.”
Montclair Township Animal Shelter also reiterates: DO NOT ABANDON pets anywhere or at the shelter during this time.
“We are here to help the community,” says Morgan. “We don’t want anyone to be in the position to choose between feeding their family or their pets,. We are offering pet food for anyone who needs it. Just send us an email and we will respond with a time to pick it up.”
Montclair Township Animal Shelter welcomes food donations from the community to help out their fellow residents; donations can be left at the front door. No donations of linens at this time. PET FOOD ONLY.
