Murphy Is Montclair Pet Mayor!

Montclair voters backed the traditionalist candidate in elections this month.  Murphy, a Chocolate Lab sponsored by Crogan’s Restaurant, succeeds Little Bear, an Alaskan Mix, as Pet Mayor.  Murphy’s administration includes Jasper, a Portuguese Water Dog, as Vice Mayor, and Stella, a long haired cat, as Secretary of  Catastrophic Disasters.  Congratulations to the victors, and to the Montclair Veterinary Hospital Pet and Wildlife Fund, which raised nearly $14,000 in the Pet Mayor Contest.

That’s a pretty impressive haul.  Since 2004, the pet mayor contest has raised $60,000, which has paid vets for helping injured and ill wildlife.  We look forward to Murphy’s administration.
