Adopt A Pet


Crystal gets noticed because she has big beautiful eyes. She loves to purr and to be pet. She is really not a lap cat but will sit and lay next to you while you are watching TV. Crystal also loves attention and will sit next to, behind or even on your keyboard while you are working. She also love snacks and will hunt them down and bring them to you so you in turn can give them to her. Crystal is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Crystal, please complete the Pre-adoption application at or call Lauren at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.

Born in mid-March of 2017, Whinny is the perfect combination of calm and crazy. This black little girl came in much tinier than the rest of the kitties we rescued but that didn’t stop her. She keeps up with the boys in both play and appetite and will always join in her sister’s antics. She is getting used to being held a little more every day. Whinny would do great with another companion kitty, whether or not it is one of her siblings. Whinny is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchippedIf you are interested in adopting Whinny, please complete the Pre-adoption application at or call Lauren at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.You can tell by the thoughtful look on his face what a sensitive boy Kawi is. He's come such a long way in terms of trusting people and we're so proud of him!

Naomi came to us super pregnant, and was a wonderful mom to her babies, but now she’s ready for a home of her own! She is the sweetest girl, who loves giving kisses and snuggling.
