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!

We can never forget we are a nation of immigrants. 

We cannot fall prey to fear, ignorance and anger when we  have been historically driven by freedom and justice. 

We must have the courage and will to fight hate, bigotry and prejudice. 

We must not wake up to what we hoped was a bad dream and ...
