Montclair Animal Shelter to Host Street Party Fundraiser

Friends of the Montclair Animal Shelter logoFriends of the Montclair Township Animal Shelter (FOMTAS) will host a fun, family-friendly summer celebration to raise awareness of the Shelter and much needed additional funding. The event will be held Saturday, July 21, 12:00 – 4:00 p.m., outside the Shelter at 77 North Willow St., Montclair.

The street party promises great food (including a vegan bake sale), fun activities for the kids and great music – plus the chance to meet all the sweet, affectionate neighborhood animals needing and deserving new homes.

The Animal Shelter will extend its hours on the day of the street party (opening at Noon) and will offer reduced adoption fees during the event – $70 for dogs, $50 for cats. Shelter staff will be on hand to answer any questions and to help match potential adopters with an animal that’s a perfect fit.

Admission to the event is free, but a small monetary donation will be required for food and activities. Residents are also encouraged to bring in-kind donations, items such as cat litter, pet food, pet toys, laundry detergent, old newspapers, and used-but-unsoiled linens like blankets, towels and pet beds. Local vendors at the event will donate a portion of their proceeds from the day. All proceeds raised from the outdoor event will go towards helping the Shelter’s animals.
