Adopt A Pet


Born in December 2017, this little guy loves to play! Mugsy is a typical kitten who will come for affection once he is all tuckered out. He enjoys wrestling with his “brother” Bugsy, who may be a month older. The pair came from a START maintained 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. Mugsy is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped. If you would like to adopt Mugsy, complete the pre-adoption application at or call Kym at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.

Scout was being cared for in a garage by a very kind man. While she was lucky enough to be loved, she deserved the comforts of a home. When she became pregnant, he realized he needed help with her. We took her in and she gave us a litter of four. A wonderful mom, Scout even took in a stray kitten and called him her own. Now a mom of five, her sweet personality never wavered. Scout loves attention and will enjoy lap time with you any chance she can get. Born in March 2017, she is a tiny little tabby with a big heart. Scout is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped. If you would like to adopt Scout, complete the pre-adoption application at or call Lauren at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.
