  • Dorothy snuggles with a volunteer at the West Milford Animal Shelter.



In the Oz books, Dorothy is an orphan raised by her aunt and uncle on Kansas farm. A powerful tornado transports her and her little dog Toto from Kansas to the Land Of Oz. She meets a good witch and the residents of Oz who tell her if she wants to find her way home, she has to follow the yellow brick road and ask the powerful wizard to help her.

There is a Dorothy at the West Milford Animal Shelter who is also trying to find "her" home. Not the one she may or not had before she arrived at the shelter but a new home. There are no good witches or wizards to help her or a yellow brick road to follow. There are many kind and loving volunteers who care for her and want to help her find her way "home".

The Dorothy at the shelter is a very gentle, friendly and loving tiger cat who loves to snuggle. She is a nice looking cat but not beautiful or pushy so she has been overlooked by people who have visited the shelter recently looking for a kitten or cat companion. Now that most of the kittens have been adopted perhaps someone special will finally notice her and take her on the road that leads to home. And the story of Dorothy, the shelter cat, will have a happy ending.

The shelter is located on Lycosky drive (behind recycling) and for information 973-728-2859 or Facebook/The Real Cats at WMASS or facebook/The West Milford Animal Shelter.
