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

Margarhita -This precious girl is ready for adoption. Margarita is a beautiful Buff tabby who is really still a kitten. This darlin' is a real sweetie. She will start out shy but when she warms up to you can be very affectionate. She is up to date on shots and spayed. She is very attached to her sister Mimosa and they would love to be adopted together. They are all set and hoping to find someone to love them. If you are that person/family please email saracats.julia@gmail.com for an application or for any questions. Very nice kittens and very sweet girls. You can see them on Saturdays at Pet Valu in Garwood NJ or by appointment. Thanks!

Mimosa This beautiful girl is looking for a FURever love. Mimosa is a beautiful patch tabby Calico who is really still a kitten. This darlin' is a real spitfire; she loves to play, be held and cuddled. She is extremely affectionate. A confident sister of Margarhita who loves to explore and get affection. She is up to date on shots and spayed. She is very attached to her sister Margarita and they would love to be adopted together. They are all set and hoping to find someone to love them. If you are that person/family please email saracats.julia@gmail.com for an application or for any questions. You can also see her on Saturdays at Pet Valu in Garwood or by appointment.

Nosey Rosey This sweet kitty is Nosey Rosey! She is a beautiful female kitty with lovely black & white fur and a very friendly personality. This poor girl was dumped at Petco a few weeks back; she and her two kittens were just left there in a cage without a single word. Nosey Rosey's kittens were adopted quickly but she is still waiting for her fur-ever family to find her. She is very sweet and loving and would make a wonderful companion for just about anybody! Its difficult to get a good photo of this kitty because once she sees you, she comes right over just in case you want to pet her. This cat is FIV/FELV negative and up to date on shots. You can visit her on adoption days at the Old Bridge Petco on Rt. 9 South and Ernston Rd. on Saturdays from 11-4.

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 Petco in Blue Star Shopping Center in Watchung, NJ or Petco in Sayerville on Rt 9.

If you are interested in adopting in the Watchung area, please call Betty B. at (908) 464-1203, or contact Kathleen for the Sayerville/Old Bridge area at saracats@aol.com.

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 Petco during our adoption days.

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 Petco.

Volunteers are also needed for Petco in Old Bridge! 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 Kathleen at 732-309-4089 (or e-mail SARACats@aol.com) if you can help in this area.

Petco volunteers must be at least 18 years old and have dependable transportation.

Cage cleaners for Pet Valu in Garwood as well = please contact Julia @saracats.julia@gmail.com.

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 OR mjeroland@gmail.com if you can help.

Pet Communicator Info:

ANNE ANGELO (Saturday):

My mission is to provide compassionate and professional care for any animal with whom I am working. As I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, it is extremely important to me to provide sensitivity and understanding to my work with people and their animal companions. During an animal communication, small animal massage or Reiki session, I will facilitate compassionate and respectful communication between you and your animal friend. When I communicate with your animal I am receiving information "telepathically". This can mean that I am hearing, seeing and feeling information during the discussion.



Sharon Kurtz, RN, BSN has been communicating with the animal world since she was a child. She works with pets and their owners on behavior issues, illnesses, loving connections with pets that have crossed over, and just allowing the pet to let their owners know their thoughts and feelings. With over thirty years of experience in holistic practices, Sharon offers a unique blend of services for both animals and individuals who seek to find balance in their lives. Sharon, a Registered Nurse and Integrative Medicine Holistic Therapist in an Elizabeth, NJ hospital, aside from being an animal communicator is an acupressure practitioner, Hypnocounselor, Reiki Master/Teacher, Integrated Energy Therapy Master Instructor. She is the Founder and Director of Get in Touch Too, LLC located in Washington Twp., NJ, a center offering a unique approach to healing for people, their pets, and between the pet and their owner. You may contact Sharon via email at getintouchtoo@comcast.net or phone 908-835-3553
