Adopt A Pet


Petra is a very loveable girl who loves to be pet and have her head scratched. Her foster mom calls me her “shadow”. IShe follows her everywhere. Petra gets along great with people and with other cats. No dogs please! If you think you have room in your home and in your heart for her, she would be very happy to meet you. Petra is very affectionate and will make a wonderful addition to any family. Petra is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Petra, complete the pre-adoption Application on or call Maria at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.

We have cleaned out colonies, emptied backyards and brought in pregnant ferals. All resulting in an abundance of beautiful little furballs! CT is a handsome black and white tuxedo with a cute moustache. He may be a little on the shy side at first but once you pick him up, he’s all yours. He was overwhelmed being indoors at first but has quickly warmed up to his new, safe surroundings. He also loves to be around his litter mates and friends, running and playing as a typical boy. Food and friends make the best combination! A forever home with a companion kitty would be ideal for all of our kittens. CT is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped.  If you are interested in making CT a part of your family, complete our pre-adoption application at or call Lauren at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.

Clay is just the perfect boy! He loves people, is so friendly and sweet, and walks well on leash. We know you’ll love him as much as we do!
