Our Pets

Due to the kitten overflow this year and the struggling economy, more cats and kittens are losing their homes. These kittens are growing up fast due to the adoption slowdown - would you please consider giving these young kitties a good home?

Featured Cats

BEAUTIFUL MHEETU -This gorgeous boy was found as a 4 month old kitten along with his brother Simba behind the Scotch Plains Fire Department. Mheetu is a sweetie who loves to play! He can play rough so an experienced kitty owner is best for this dominant boy. He would be great as a single or with a family that has a dog. He is stunning looking. He loves attention and always looks to be the center of attention! You can meet him at Pet Valu Garwood by appointment. For more info: saracats.julia@gmail.com

GORGEOUS LUCKY Lucky was rescued on the Rutgers campus in Newark. She was found wandering around alone. Lucky loves playing with her other foster friends, but would like a home of her own soon. She is somewhat reserved at first, but warms up quickly. Lucky loves to be petted and will sit on your lap once she feels comfortable. If interested, please contact Mary at 732-668-7303 or email mlestrange88@gmail.com

S.A.R.A. Inc. is a animal rescue and placement organization. We are a 501c(3) organization, so your donations are tax deductible. We are comprised of devoted volunteers, some with over thirty years of experience. We have a Board of Trustees and Officers who have hands-on knowledge of how to run an effective and efficient animal rescue organization. We are all actively involved and committed to helping as many cats and dogs as we can! Donations can be made by our paypal link OR by sending a check to : SARA INC PO BOX 124, Berkeley Hts, NJ 07922

Our focus is cats and kittens. S.A.R.A.'s priority is to get as many rescued animals placed in good and caring homes. One of our main objectives is population control so we also manage feral colonies with a spay/neuter program. We do not have a shelter. All our animals are fostered in homes and put on display at Pet Valu in Gillette or Pet Valu in Garwood.

You can also reach us at sararescue@comcast.net

Get Involved

We have a wish list of supplies that we always need. If you can spare any of the following items, you can either email us at sararescue@comcast.net or call Betty B. at (908) 464-1203 and arrangements will be made to pick up your donation. You can also bring supplies to any of our adoption locations during adoption hours.

Volunteer Your Time: Volunteers are always needed and very much welcome not only during our Pet Adoption Days, but also in the daily care of the cats and kittens being kept on display at each adoption location..

Volunteers are needed for Pet Valu in Gillette and Garwood! We are in desperate need of capable volunteers to take one or two slots a week (mornings or evenings) to help with cage cleaning, feeding and caring for our cats and kittens. Please consider being part of a S.A.R.A.'s effort to place even more animals in good, stable homes. Contact Julia at e-mail Saracats.julia@gmail.com) if you can help in this area.

Volunteers under 18 must be with an adult at all times.

Foster Homes: Being a foster home is a fantastic experience. Foster homes are always needed to work with cats, kittens for both long and short term periods, depending on the needs of the animal to groom them into adoptable pets.

Be an Angel: Desperately needed are people with big hearts willing to take in a blood positive (feline AIDS) cat or kitten. Many of these live long, healthy lives. As a note, FIV cannot be transmitted to humans.

S.A.R.A. is working on several projects right now. Donations are essential to keep our efforts going. Monetary donations assist in helping us with TNR efforts such as the large colonies we are undertaking in Garwood NJ and Old Bridge NJ., Together those sites have yielded over 50 cats that will no longer be able to reproduce kittens when we are finished with the project. Costs are high and therefore we need donations to help assist in our efforts.

We have also assisted in several foreclosures, evictions (27 cats), deaths and poor health cases. All of which had very little money to assist in the care of these cats in order for proper placement. Projects are still on going and costly.

Experienced trappers, fosters and people who want to assist in our fundraising efforts are needed. Please contact 'saracats.julia@gmail.com if you can help.
