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.
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.
For further questions about the Pet Mayor race and how to participate, please call Lee Richter at (510) 339-2600 or email Lee@PetandWildlifeFund.org or stop by Holistic Veterinary Care at 4382 Piedmont Avenue in Oakland.
