Bonnie and Olga Find Forever Homes

Share |

Bonnie and Olga, two canine cuties at the Montclair Animal Shelter, have found forever homes, thanks to the tremendous efforts of shelter volunteers who host adoption events at the Walnut Street Farmers’ Market.

Bonnie, a 5-year-old Beagle was a stray who was picked up by one of the Montclair Animal Shelter’s Animal Control Officers in July. Her new family spotted her having her photo taken during at the Farmers’ Market last month. They fell in love with Bonnie – now named Penny -- and she with them.

Gentle sweet soul Olga was with the Shelter for 15 months but is now with her new BFF in her forever home.

Farmers’ Market animal adoption efforts are organized by shelter volunteer Nancy Willis.

“Not only do our volunteers and visitors to the event have a terrific time with our dogs, we’re so pleased that some of our wonderful animals have been placed in homes with great people,” said Willis. “We’re hosting even more adoption events in this month.”

Nancy and other shelter volunteers will be at the Farmers’ Market September 6, 13 and 27. Stop by to say hello. You never know – you may very well go home with your new best friend.

The Montclair Animal Shelter's cuddly canines will be meeting and greeting folks at the Walnut Street Farmers’ Market on September 6, 13, and 27, from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Tiger, Tina, Buddy Love, and others will once again accompany their terrific shelter volunteer humans for a fun outing.

During the dogs' last two appearances at the market, several were placed with wonderful families: Bonnie (now Penny) and Olga were adopted and Stephanie found a foster home. Remember -- fostering a pet is always an option!

If bring you home your new BFF from the event, you’ll get 50% off the adoption fee. Half price shelter adoption costs are: $70 for dogs ($140 full fee) and $50 for cats ($100 full fee).

The Montclair Farmers’ Market is held in the Walnut Street train station parking lot every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The market runs all summer and through the fall until Thanksgiving.
