Dr. George L. Cameron, an icon to Montclair-area pet owners, entered into retirement from Cameron Animal Hospital after a half century with a party attended by well-wishers at Greenleaf Eclectic Cafe on Sunday evening, Nov. 3. Cameron has helped millions of animals, owned and stray alike, and helped found, among others, the Montclair Animal shelter, Bloomfield Animals Shelter, Pound Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) and FOBAS.
The hospital was founded by his father, Dr. George Cameron Sr. in 1936, and will continue to operate under the direction of Dr. Elizabeth Houston and Michael Martinez, who have both worked at the hospital for more than 16 years.
All funds raised in celebration of his legacy will be donated to the Cameron Animal Rescue program, and the Montclair Animal Shelter. For those who cannot attend, messages and donations can be made at paypal.me/cahrescue.
