2011 Pet Mayor of Piedmont Contest

The Montclair Pet & Wildlife Fund’s most popular fund-raising event is the Pet Mayor Contest. Starting in 2004, the Montclair Village Association and the Montclair Veterinary Hospital joined forces to elect a Pet Mayor for Montclair Village.  This year will be our first Pet Mayor Race throughout Piedmont Avenue and we hope to make it our best yet!  Local businesses sponsor pet candidates and provide polling places on their premises.  So, if you fancy your pet in a high office, all you need is a business sponsor that is a member of the Piedmont Avenue Merchants Association. 

What It Means to be Mayor

The Pet Mayor of Piedmont serves as an ambassador of goodwill to all creatures in the community: two-legged, four-legged, furred, feathered and scaled. In addition to media attention and the chance to appear in public on behalf of the Pet & Wildlife Fund, the winning pet gets a $100 gift certificate for veterinary care at Holistic Veterinary Care along with pet food, treats and services donated by our vendors.

Several Way To Get Involved

  • Enter a pet in the Pet Mayor of Piedmont contest
  • Sponsor the campaign for a contestant – either your own pet, a friend’s pet or another Piedmont Avenue pet of your choice
  • Make a cash donation to the Pet & Wildlife Fund – Donations are tax deductible
  • Donate a prize for the winners of the race
  • Host an event such as  guest bartender night or a wine and cheese mixer during the campaign for one of the candidates
  • Put up signage at your place of business, online, or in front of your home to help promote a candidate of your choice
