Ziggy, a male cat rescued by Save The Animals Rescue Team II (START II), the non-profit, all volunteer, no-kill animal rescue group, from local high kill shelter where he was extremely emaciated and was slated to be placed onto the euthanasia list about 2 months ago.

Ziggy a short hair domestic grey and white cat, approximately 3 years of age, is full of life and would make a wonderful companion cat. Volunteers say he would be best with slightly older children because of his past, however is great with other cats and loves his toys. No dogs please as he wants to go after them. Ziggy is a low key cat who just wants a home and love. He had obviously gone through a rough start in life and now it's time for him to live a life he deserves.

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