Oct 08, 2015 02:16PM ● By Neighbors Magazines

“We wanted to do something that promotes pet adoption that would be fun for our staff as well,” says Rosanne Terry, Village of Westmont Community Service Office and Animal Control Liaison. “It’s important that people know that there are animal care resources available to them including the information regarding animal adoption and volunteering.”

Terry and Communications Director Larry McIntyre have created a “Village People & Their Pets 2016” calendar. Each month features a picture of a village staff person with their pet as well as information about pet adoptions and animal fun facts. The free calendar can be downloaded from the village website at
