MONTVILLE, NJ - While we are all social distancing and staying home to flatten the curve, the Montville Animal Shelter continues to seek homes for the many animals at the shelter. Right now Montville Animal Shelter is placing pets like Curley & Merlin with a new, no contact, Foster to Adopt Program until further notice to help find homes for these lonely animals at the shelter.

Curley & Merlin were surrendered to the shelter when their owner passed away and the family didn’t want them. They went from a loving home to a cold cage almost overnight and really deserve to have a warm and caring family help them through this crisis. Poor Curley needs special food and has a neurologic disorder that causes him to shake but in no way stops him from being a lovable, adorable kitty.  Curley & Merlin are often overlooked by adopters and could really use a rescue hearted person looking for a lifetime of cat devotion from this sweet pair of felines.
