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.




Approximately 2 years old, Marco was recently pulled from a local high kill shelter and was slated to be euthanized. Marco who was rescued by volunteers saw his beautiful features and his warm personality decided to bring him to Save The Animals Rescue Team II, a local non-profit, no-kill, animal rescue group located in Englewood.

Marco is great with other cats and best of all, loves to play with dogs too. He is super friendly and just wants to be your next best friend. Marco is a short hair domestic cat who has a beautiful orange and white coat that is to be admired. He is curious of new surroundings and will make a dream addition to any cat lovers home.

Marco is neutered and up to date on all of his routine shots. Marco and his friends are up for adoption at START II. If you are interested in meeting Marco, 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 Marco, 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.
