Summer Pet Tips PDF Print E-mail

Cinnamon the happy dogThursday, May 29, 2014

Now that summer is here, we can all enjoy spending time together indoors and out. Keep in mind there are a few things you should know to make your home safe for your pets. A few basic principles can guide good judgment.
Your pets' resting temperature is higher than yours (100-102.5F) and pets do not have the ability to cool themselves by sweating over most of their bodies, making it harder to tolerate the hotter temperatures.

Everything You Wanted to Know about Wildlife but Were Afraid to Ask PDF Print E-mail

It’s that time of year again at the Montclair Township Animal Shelter when we receive lots of phone calls and email messages about wildlife. Everything is starting to stir in nature. The days are a little longer, the animals are a bit friskier, and the temperature is a bit warmer.

In a highly developed and bustling area such as ours, interactions and close encounters with wildlife are becoming more and more commonplace. Habitat is being destroyed for the sake of expansion and growth and we are almost literally painting wildlife into a corner. When their natural habitat is removed wild animals are forced to find creative alternative living and dining arrangements… such as your house and your trash cans.

Safety Tips for Your Pet During Winter Storms and in Extreme Cold PDF Print E-mail

Keep your pet safe and warm during winter storms and in extreme cold weather. Do you have enough of the following items to last a few days, should the roads become unsafe for travel or the veterinary office is closed?

  • - pet food
  • - litter
  • - fresh water supply
  • - soft warm bedding
  • - any medications your pet takes on a regular basis

Outdoor pets
Some pets are better suited than others for living outdoors. There is a common misconception that dogs will be "fine" if left outside. This is not true.

All pets need adequate shelter from the elements and insulation against cold weather. Pets should not be left outside for long periods in freezing weather. Like humans, they can suffer from hypothermia and frostbite. The young and the senior pets are especially at risk. Pets with arthritis are prone to more discomfort in cold and damp environments.

Deron School Students Create MTAS Kit-Cat-Club PDF Print E-mail

ALTCat crazy? Fanatic for Felines? Krackers for Kittens? Well so are we at the Monclair Township Animal Shelter (MTAS). Check out the Shelter’s newest video highlighting MTAS cats waiting for their forever home:

The Kit-Cat Club

The video was made by Deron School students Avery Moten-Black and Savoy Sutton. The creative concept and editing is a collective effort of other students at the school.

Be sure to join the Shelter’s new Facebook Group: the Montclair Township Animal Shelter Kit-Cat Club. The group was inspired by the creation of the video and is the brain-child of another Deron School student, Alex Cabelero.
