Each month a different pet available for adoption will be featured on this page. Featured pets are chosen based upon length of stay in START II's care, special needs, and/or those in need of extra exposure. If you're unable to adopt, why not consider sponsoring one or both? Simply click on our donate button, enter "Sponsor for [pet name]" and donate the amount you'd like to sponsor.




Ginger an 8-year-old sweet female Tabby was returned to Save The Animals Rescue Team II (START II) after being adopted out as a kitten. START II is a local no-kill, all-volunteer animal rescue group located in Englewood.

As the same story goes in animal rescue, Ginger who is known to be affectionate and very friendly was all of a sudden taken from her home that she knew for the last 8 years and placed into a cage at a location un known to her. According to the family, they had a child and the child became allergic to her. So out goes Ginger and back to the shelter eight years later. Ginger now sits in her cage depressed watching the other cats and kittens playing wondering what she did wrong.

Ginger needs to be in a loving forever home that will not abandon her. She needs unconditional love and reassurance this will not happen to her again. Can this be you?

If you cannot adopt Ginger, please consider sponsoring her until a loving home can be found. Your donation is tax deductible and a letter will be sent for your taxes. Please mark checks sponsorship and name of animal you wish to support. You may continue with your sponsorship once the animal is adopted or cancel at any time. Please mail all information to START II PO Box 177, Elmwood Park, NJ 07407.
