Pet Valu in Garwood and Gillette on Saturdays as they do not have a shelter rather all rescues are fostered in volunteer homes. In addition, SARA assists NJ residents with low-cost resources to spay and neuter feral cats in order to reduce the number of unwanted kittens in shelters. SARA has a proven track record for saving lives. Through tireless efforts they have found homes for over 6,000 animals since they began over 13 years ago.  SARA’s entire staff is made up of volunteers, working in tandem with veterinarians who assist with discounted rates. 100 percent of all donations raised go directly to the care and feeding of the animals saved.
