Finding abandoned or lost cats is unfortunately an everyday occurrence in our area. But abandoned senior cats always tug a little more at our heartstrings. How could anyone have a loving family member for so long and then just toss them away? Cindy is one of those seniors who was found wandering the streets. She was easily picked up and has not stopped showing us affection ever since. She is a petite tuxedo who was born in 2005. Cindy would be the perfect companion for anyone with a lot of love to give. She is a pleasure to have around, doesn’t mind being picked up and just needs a place to call home in her golden years. Cindy is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped.  If you are interested in making Cindy a part of your family, complete the pre-adoption application at www.startpets.net or call Lauren at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.

It’s not often that we bring in senior kitties from the outdoors, but that’s where we found Earl. He finally got tired of roughing it and walked right in someone’s door. A few bumps and bruises needed to be tended to, but overall not in bad shape for an old guy. Born in August 2008, Earl is a solid black boy with a bit of a drool, probably the result of a few missing teeth. Earl gets along well with other cats, though tends to be a bit of a food hog when they’re not looking. He loves the attention of a petting hand but needs to work up to being picked up. Earl would make a wonderful companion and just needs a place to call home. Earl is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped.  If you are interested in making Earl a part of your family, complete the pre-adoption application at www.startpets.net or call Lauren at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.

Evan's been here way too long for such a sweet boy - he's been at the shelter since he was just a little kitten. He might seem shy, but he really is just a big mush who loves being pet! All he wants is a home with people who will love him and provide plenty of belly rubs!

Op-Ed: New Jersey’s Out-of-Network Bill Huge Blow To Middle-Class

April 10, 2018

As Trenton currently looks to balance the budget, once again it’s our state’s hardest working citizens who will be left holding the bag. This time, though, it will be the hardworking office and ancillary staff from our small business private medical practices. A bill called “The Out-of-Network Consumer Protection Bill” A-2039/S-485 looks poised to make it ...

Born in November of 2017, Bugsy loves to play with his “brother” Mugsy! He can be a little shy at first but is a typical kitten. He loves to wrestle with Mugsy. The pair came from a START managed colony that was not in a safe location for the boys so we took them in. Bugsy and Mugsy have been fostered with other cats and also with a dog. Bugsy is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV ...
