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.




Five-year-old Sweetie was saved by Save The Animals Rescue Team II (START II), an all-volunteer, non-profit, no-kill animal rescue group located in Englewood a few weeks ago. Sweetie, a hound, was in a high kill shelter in the south, then rescued into foster care as the people noticed how sweet she is by nature; hence her name. After a few weeks in foster care with children and another dog, START II was called to help take her into their care and adopt her to a loving home.

Sweetie is amazing with children of all ages and is spectacular with other dogs. She is a medium size dog, with a short white coat, with black and brown markings. Sweetie is a happy go lucky gal with a heart of gold. She cannot do enough to gratify you. Volunteers feel they would not be surprised if this warmhearted young lady is adopted out quickly to a devoted family.

Sweetie is spayed and up to date on all of her routine shots. Sweetie and her furry friends are up for adoption at START II. If you are interested in meeting Sweetie, 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. Please remember when adopting a new pet, that this is a life time commitment.
If you cannot adopt Sweetie, 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.
