Help Save the Animals Rescue Team II “Raise the Roof”
The Englewood, NJ – based organization is hosting a puppy and kitten shower to help raise funds to replace the roof on their shelter facility
For over 25 years, Save the Animals Rescue Team II (S.T.A.R.T. ii) has worked to save the lives of thousands of dogs and cats throughout Northern New Jersey. The shelter is now asking the community to help fund the much-needed replacement of the roof at its Englewood facility by attending its Kitten & Puppy Shower on Sunday October 6th 2013.
The event will be held from 11am – 2pm at Vitale’s restaurant, 293 Queen Anne Rd., Teaneck, NJ. Attendees will be treated to a delicious buffet brunch, and activities will include a money hat, 50/50 and a Tricky Tray offering a great assortment of gift baskets and other items. All proceeds will benefit S.T.A.R.T. IIIs “Raise the Roof” project. Guests are also asked to bring a pet-related gift for the wishing well. Donated items will be used for the cats and dogs in our care.
“Summer is prime kitten and puppy season, and this year has been particularly challenging,” explains President Marge Kayne. “We are trying to save as many animals as we can from entering local kill shelters, which puts a tremendous strain on our finances. Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy heavily damaged our roof last year, and we can no longer put off replacing it. We are in a difficult situation of needing to cover the cost of a new roof, while trying to find funds to offset the costs of vaccinations, spays/neuters and other care for over 300 puppies and kittens we have taken in over the past few months.”
Tickets to the shower are $35 and can be ordered by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone to 201-368-2743 (ask for Joan). If you cannot attend the event, please consider making a tax-deductible donation via our website at startii.org or via check mailed to PO Box 177, Elmwood Park, NJ 07407.
