S.T.A.R.T. relies solely upon the funds raised through events like our Annual Tricky Tray, Clothing Drives, Ride to Rescue to name a few that have been cancelled this year.  Currently, we are relying on donations from private contributions, members’ financial support and grants to carry out our rescue efforts. Because S.T.A.R.T. is a no-kill organization without a shelter facility, all our rescued animals are kindly cared for by foster families until they can be adopted. In addition to our rescue program, S.T.A.R.T. actively works to alleviate the local pet overpopulation crisis through our ongoing Trap, Neuter, Return program.

ANIMALS CANNOT GIVE YOU THE CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19). Please do not surrender your pets.


For the safety of everyone, (and mandated by the state) our weekend adoption events have been cancelled and animals in the adoption center will not return to Petco until we are over this crisis. We are hoping to return soon and will keep you updated!   


We are continuing to adopt our kitties, so please take a look at our adoptable animals on our website-, or If you are interested in adopting please send an email to and/or fill out an application online. One of our fosters will contact you directly. Until further notice all ADOPTIONS will be BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Once an application is approved, we can still meet you at Petco.


START survives on our weekly collections at Petco and our Fundraisers. Our Ride to Rescue fundraiser was cancelled leaving us short financially.  Cancelling our fundraisers is heartbreaking, as we depend on these to purchase food, pay our vet medical bills and keep our animals safe.   START may struggle to keep going but know that are animals are being taken care of with the usual amount of TLC.  START does not have a shelter, we use foster homes and have a private location for unadoptable cats that are taken care of on a daily basis.  START continues with their routines of feeding outside colonies in need of our help. Check out our wish list below on Amazon if you can help.


If you are interested in fostering please send us an email at , kitten season is around the corner. We hate to turn anyone away. If you have a spare room/bathroom and the time please consider fostering. Send us an email and let us know if you would prefer to foster a kitten or an adult. Many of our kitties need socialization before they can be put up for adoption.


If you would like to help please consider making a donation on Facebook  or on our website.  You can also help by sending supplies directly to START, check out our Amazon Wish List at:

We can not thank you enough for your support. 

Kitten season is upon us!

The doors of S.T.A.R.T. are bursting open with the pitter patter of tiny feet!  Or should we say paws!  Save the Animals Rescue Team has many foster parents that are tending to little ones who are looking for their forever homes.  While we would love nothing more than to save them all, we can only tend to so many, so every adoption allows us to save yet another life.  The rescuing never ends but we can only succeed with the help and generosity of our community.  What a rewarding feeling it is to say you helped to save a life! 


Come to our adoption events on weekends at Petco on Route 46W in Totowa from 11a-3p and let us help to match you with the perfect companion for your home and your family. 


Keep in mind that kitten season does not mean that our adults get overlooked.  While the colors and the personalities of the cats may vary, the need for love does not.


All of the cats in our care are altered, up to date with their vaccinations, tested for FELV/FIV and microchipped.
