This year has put a strain on the world as we know it! While our lives changed, the one constant for us has been our rescue life. The fur-babies still need our help to provide them with a chance for a better life. S.T.A.R.T. will not let down the four-legged community.  It has been difficult to survive financially but you are truly making a difference!


Please share with your friends and family and let them know we are making a difference in the lives of our rescued animals!


Thank you for your support.

Heading 1

Kitties in Trouble


Final Update 12/21


COVID-19 is truly making things incredibly difficult on us, but we will not stop saving animals. We will figure it out, but sure could use some help... 


Blackie is fitting is doing well in his fur-ever home .

He still needs help going to the bathroom and

we hope that he will be 100% soon.



Sparrow has been altered, our vet has asked us to

give Sparrows more time for her eye to heal!!

It will never be 100% but is not giving her any pain.

Sparrow is adopted !!


​Mojo's surgeries have been completed, both ear

and nasal polyps have been removed. 

Mojo is looking so much better these days;

he is the happiest little guy!!

Mojo has beenposted on our website for adoption!!

Please fill out an application


Thank you for the prayers and support!!

  Hugs and Kisses to All!!

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- www.startpets.net, or Petfinder.com. If you are interested in adopting please send an email to info@startpets.net 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 info@startpets.net , 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: https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/B51OMVJ7KYHU/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_1?_encoding=UTF8&type=wishlist

We can not thank you enough for your support. 

Kitten season is always here these days!!!

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! 


Meet and Greets only at Petco Totowa.   Our adoption events on weekends at Petco on Route 46W in Totowa from 11a-3p  have been suspended due to Covid.

Please check out our Pets for Adoption and send us an email and we will set up an appointment.

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.


Any questions, please call S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245 or visit www.startpets.net!
