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.




Jade is a stunning black and white domestic short-hair cat. This young lady was pulled from a local high kill shelter recently by Save The Animals Rescue Team II, (START II) an all-volunteer, non-profit, no kill rescue group located in Englewood.

Jade is approximately 1 plus years of age, exhibits the usual alertness and playfulness of a young feline, has very long white whiskers with attractive markings that adds to her personality which could be why she is super sweet. In addition, Jade's eyes stand out like two beacons against the night. Jade just loves children and adults of all ages however, she appears to be just a bit skittish of other cats and does not like dogs. Volunteers feel she maybe best as the only cat.

Jade is spayed and up to date on all of her routine shots. Jade and her friends are up for adoption at START II. If you are interested in meeting Jade, please fill out an online application at www.startii.org or call the shelter at 201-797-8861. Also find us on facebook at facebook.com/SaveTheAnimalsRescueTeamII.
If you cannot adopt Jade, 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.
