Adopt A Pet


Tyson took a trip to the vet with an abscessed leg wound from an animal bite. Being an inside/outside cat at the time, bite wounds can be pretty common. So you take care of the injury and move on, right? Tyson’s owner had a different solution in mind. Euthanasia! Of course, that was not going to be OUR solution. Born in 2012, a perfectly healthy and friendly boy, there simply was no logical reason to end his life. Tyson was surrendered to the vet where he was medically treated and is now ready for a forever home. A home where he will be loved and cared for as any family member should be. Please consider opening your heart to this sweet boy. Let him know there are still wonderful people out there who don’t take life for granted. Tyson is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped. If you would like to make Tyson a part of your family, complete the pre-adoption application at or call Lauren at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.

Porter is a brown tiger boy, born in May of 2017. This handsome little guy may come off a bit shy at first, but just be patient. He loves to play and runs around like a typical kitten! He would do best with a playmate in his new home. Please consider his brother, Killian (also up for adoption). Porter is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped. If you are interested in making Porter a part of your family, complete the pre-adoption application at or call Judy at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.

Misty is a sweet and super social girl who loves being pet. She absolutely adores meeting new people and giving hugs!
