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.




Goldie approximately 1 1/2 years old was found by a volunteer as a local stray as a kitten. Goldie grew up in the care of Save The Animals Rescue Team II, (START II) a local non-profit, no-kill, all volunteer animal rescue group located in Englewood.

Goldie has been with the shelter for approximately 8 months or so. He is a very sweet and engaging cat who loves to cuddle and great with people. However, Goldie does not appear to get along well with other cats according to volunteers and no dogs

Goldie is neutered and up to date on all routine shots. Can you open up your home and heart to give him an amazing home of his own? It appears he had a bumpy start in life until Save The Animals Rescue Team II had saved him. Please remember owning a pet is for life so please make sure you have arrangements made if something should happen and you are unable to care for your pet.
Please contact us at www.startii.org or find us on facebook at facebook at facebook.com/savetheanimalsrescueteamii for updated information. You can also call us at 201-797-8861 or email us at startkayne@gmail.com.
If you cannot adopt Goldie, please consider sponsoring him 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.
