October is National Pit Bull Awareness Month and the 25th is National Pit Bull Awareness Day (NPBAD) – a day of appreciation and education designed to change perceptions and stereotypes about pit bulls and their responsible owners. NPBAD was established to educate and foster positive communications and experiences in the communities in which we and our dogs live, and it is an initiative dedicated to restoring the image of the American Pit Bull Terrier.
Many of our shelter dogs are bully mixes – and these dogs often wait for months to find their forever homes. We hope that with education and compassion, we can dispel the many myths that surround this incredible breed.
We invite you to come down to Montclair Township Animal Shelter and meet our adorable adoptable bully mixes. Bring a friend and change minds! We dare you not to fall in love.

Montclair Township Animal Shelter Pet Spotlight: Bailey
Meet Bailey, a lovely two-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier 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.
