Pet Spotlight: Biggie PDF Print E-mail
Biggie the Chihuahua mixBiggie is looking for his forever family. He is a Chihuahua mix and is two years old. He has been at the shelter for about two weeks after his owner turned him in. He is a very affectionate little guy but can be shy at first so it is best to let him come to you the first time you meet.

Biggie loves to walk or he is happy to hang out and sit on your lap and to have his back scratched. He would love his very own special person to hang out with and to make him part of the family. His ideal family would be with children a little older so as not to startle him. If you already have another little dog, that may work too however we would ask to set up a time to meet so everyone can make sure that they will be friends! Please come by to meet Biggie at the Montclair Township Animal Shelter at 77 North Willow Street during our new, extended visiting hours:

Monday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Tuesday -- 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Wednesday -- 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Thursday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Friday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Saturday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Sunday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Township Hires Acting Animal Shelter Director PDF Print E-mail

Acting Animal Shelter Director Nicole DawsonMontclair Township Manager Timothy Stafford is pleased to announce the appointment of Nicole Dawson as acting Animal Shelter Director. She will serve at the Shelter until the position can be permanently filled.

Ms. Dawson brings to the shelter extensive knowledge and experience with animal welfare operations management. Most recently she served as the Interim Director for the Helmetta Regional Animal Shelter after the NJSPCA took receivership of the agency. While there, she developed a business plan for a financially sustainable and humane shelter which was presented to the borough’s council.

Prior to that Ms. Dawson was the Executive Director at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter, where she helped triple adoption numbers, significantly increased TNR rates, and raised the awareness level of the organization, thereby helping double donations over previous years.

“We are confident that Ms. Dawson will provide our shelter the appropriate guidance to help organize operations and offer a smooth transition for the person who will ultimately fill the director position,” said Township Manager Stafford. “We look forward to working with her in the coming months to ensure that our shelter animals have the best care possible.”
