Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization Inc., founded in 2003, is dedicated to saving the lives of countless felines by rescuing abused, abandoned and homeless cats and kittens, providing veterinary care and shelter until they can be placed into a loving home. It grew out of the need to find adoptive homes for the ever-increasing number of unwanted cats and kittens. Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization Inc. is comprised entirely of volunteers that assist in the rescue and placement of Cats and Kittens in New Jersey and the surrounding Delaware Valley. Whiskers- The amazing cat that started it all! Whiskers was rescued from an abusive over back on January 17, 2003. Although Whiskers was very trustful, it did not stop his owner from abusing him so severely, that he was paralyzed for more then 10 weeks. His owner caused Whiskers severe pain from which he suffered from a broken back, cracked ribs, broken teeth, along with several abrasions. When Whiskers was rescued he was thin, dirty and smelly and was kept in a cold porcelain bathtub by his owner because he was paralyzed and could not make it to the litter box. To make matters worse for Whiskers, he even has a damaged retina. The doctor said most likely from blunt trauma afflicted to his eye. Now Whiskers is safe at home with the founder of SWRO. That is the story of how Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization derived it's name. Hence, the story of our mascot cat who is the inspiration behind S.W.R.O. There are too many silent "Whiskers" suffering every minute, of every day. It is our hope that with your help and support we can make a difference with our rescue. No cat or kitten leaves S.W.R.O. without completely being vetted. That includes age appropriate vaccinations, spaying/neutering, worming treatments and feline leukemia/FIV testing.
