Join MTAS at the “Our Pound in Town” Block Party April 10

The Montclair Township Animal Shelter and Pit Bull Mate are teaming up to host an “Our Pound in Town” block party on Sunday, April 10, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on North Willow Street between Claremont Avenue and Walnut Street.

“The block party will be a way for the community to learn more about the shelter and all the services we provide,” said Shelter Director Niki Dawson. “We’ll also be showing off our wonderful shelter pets who are looking for their forever homes.”

Montclair businessman and creator/owner of Pit Bull Mate Jeremy Pholwattana is a major sponsor of the “Our Pound in Town” block party. He’ll be on hand to answer questions about pit bulls and the pit bull owners community he helped develop through — an online service designed specifically to bring awareness to this much maligned breed and to connect shelters, owners, and foster owners in an interactive setting.

Local vendors and friends will provide food, beverages, ice cream, balloons, children’s activities, a DJ, a band and so much more.

Join your friends and neighbors — two- and four-footed — for a fun family day and help raise awareness for the Montclair Township Animal Shelter and its animals.

The “Our Pound in Town” block party is made possible with generous support from Jeremy Pholwattana and Pit Bull Mate, the Montclair Girl Scouts,  and many others including Taste Of Montclair supporters Laboratorio,  Gelotti of Montclair, and Uptown Art.

The Montclair Township Animal Shelter is municipally run and governed by the Township of Montclair, New Jersey. It provides animal care and control for the townships of Montclair, Verona and Nutley. We intake stray animals and pets whose owners are unable to keep them (only for residents of the above stated townships), and offer adoption services for the pets we intake.
