Animal Shelter Volunteers & Staff Step Up Adoption Efforts PDF Print E-mail

Nancy Willis with Tiger the dogFriday, November 7, 2014

The Montclair Township Animal Shelter has seen some remarkable progress in pet adoption numbers during last several weeks. Volunteers rallied behind adoption events, dog-walking, pet socialization, and other efforts to help shelter animals, so that they may ultimately find their forever homes.

Shelter volunteer and Montclair local Nancy Willis spearheaded a major adoption campaign for dogs. She organized weekly outings to the Montclair Farmers’ Market with volunteers and shelter dogs so that the animals could be more visible and be able to interact with the public.

Pet Spotlight: Bailey PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Bailey, an American Staffordshire mixMeet Bailey, a lovely two-year-old American Staffordshire mix and a true sweetheart. She is not very large, weighing in at about 50 pounds.

Bailey is a pretty mellow lass -- she doesn’t pull the leash when going for walks (which she LOVES) and is very friendly with anyone she meets. Cuddling is her forte; she is really affectionate, showing everyone a doggie smile that warms up your insides. Bailey knows how to sit and will give you her paw when asked.

Bailey loves kids and adults, but would do best in a home with children in their teens and older. She’d prefer a place where she gets all her love from humans, but she does get along with some dogs. A nice house with a fenced-in yard for her to run around and have fun would be great, but she is also happy to live in an apartment or condo, as long as she’s taken for walks or hikes.

Bailey is also pretty much housebroken, her vaccines are up-to-date, she is neutered, and very healthy. She’s also micro-chipped, so if she were ever lost she could be easily found and identified.

If you are interested in adopting Bailey, please come meet her at the at the Montclair Farmers' Market on Saturday, October 25. Or pop by the Montclair Animal Shelter, 77 North Willow Street, during the hours of 2-6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 2-4 p.m. every other day.

You can also call the shelter between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and one of the volunteers will provide more information on how to adopt her: 973-744-8600.

Brother and Sister Pitties Find their Forever Home Together PDF Print E-mail

Tony and Tina with their adoptive parentsTiger (now Tony), a friendly pittie at the Montclair Animal Shleter, went home with his sister Tina and their new parents. The pitties' parents adopted Tina several weeks ago after meeting her at a Shelter's Farmers' Market adoption event organized by Shelter volunteer Nancy Willis. They returned for Tony last weekend.

The couple took Tina home first to make sure she was housebroken before adopting another dog.

"It’s a challenge getting just one dog adjusted, two happy and energetic pitties would be more than a handful," said willis.

The adoptive parents came back a few weeks later to spend time with Tony and took him home too!

"A single dog being adopted from the Shelter is reason to celebrate," said Willis. "Keeping sibling dogs together with one family is fantastic beyond words."

Tina and Tony’s parents live in New Jersey and they have a summer home on Lake Champlain so Tony and Tina will be boating with them in the summers and swimming in the lake.
