Adopt A Pet


Boots and Stitch came in to S.T.A.R.T.'s foster care as adult cats. Their former owner was getting married and just could not take the cats with her. The sisters have been together since being kittens but don’t really get along very well together. We all know how family can be! Boots (mostly black with a little white) is very outgoing and lovable but seems to be a bit of an alpha. She would be a great only cat but she also has experience living with a dog and did very well. She is a sweetheart who can be a bit chatty at times. Stitch (half black, half white face) is a bit on the shy side and just needs patience in any new surroundings. Once she is comfortable, she is very lovable and can be a mush. She would be fine as an only cat but she also has experience living with a dog and did very well. Boots and Stitch are both vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting one or both of them, please complete our Pre-adoption application at or call Annette at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.

Fun-loving, cuddly Munchy is as adorable as they come! He rolls around and around for belly rubs and to be pet all over. He loves lounging in his duplex, taking in the sights and greeting all our visitors.

Our handsome Garfield hopes day after day the next family that comes to the shelter will be the one. Literally all this sweetheart wants is someone to show him love, to give him pets and to cuddle with. To see past his unusual eyes and uneven fur that are the sad result of him coming to us with massive eye infections and a matted coat. It breaks our hearts that he gets passed by because he’s not perfect looking (though to us he is flawless), when he has so much love to give. Won’t you come meet him and give him the chance he so deserves?

The Alan Purcell Wayne Animal Shelter is located at 201 Pompton Plains Crossroad, Wayne. Adoption hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8 p.m., Saturdays from 12 to 4 p.m., or by appointment. Call 973-694 -0767 or visit All animals are up to date with shots, altered, and cats are tested FIV and leukemia.
