Mission Statement

Save The Animals Rescue Team, S.T.A.R.T. established in 1991, was founded by Annette Lamberti, in order to help animals primarily in Passaic County, where city supported shelters are few, annual household income is low, and where it is a very large, disadvantaged area to cover. S.T.A.R.T. is a 501 (c)(3) private non-profit organization relying on and supported by tax-deductible donations, grants and group fund raising. We are a dedicated to alleviating the plight of thousands of homeless and abandoned animals. These victims of pet overpopulation are rescued, spayed/neutered and cared for by volunteers until suitable homes are found for them. This vital life-saving work is critical for these unfortunate animals since their only crime is to be born unwanted or abandoned by those who once loved them. It is our mission to prevent cruelty, promote spay/neuter, and to encourage awareness through education, while also teaching respect for all animals and the environment they live in. Success is largely a matter of holding on after others have let go. We are holding on, and will continue to do so in hopes that we can bring into our future a kinder, more responsible and educated animal-friendly world; and we'll do so, one homeless animal at a time!


Find good homes for unwanted animals. Support pediatric spay/neuter of all companion cats and dogs. Encourage proper care and treatment of animals through humane education. Secure and support the enforcement of legislation for the prevention of cruelty to animals and to professionalize animal control status and laws. TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return) at all times as this is the only way to cut down on pet overpopulation.
