CSTAR Event

Clinics On Hold Indefinitely
Last updated on May 21, 2020

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions currently in place for large gatherings/events, all SOS mega and mini clinics are still suspended until further notice. No future appointments are being scheduled at this time, since we do not yet have an estimated date for when clinics will resume.
We are truly sorry for any difficulties that this may cause. We are just as disappointed and frustrated as you are, and we hope that things begin to improve soon so that we can resume helping the animals of our community that need us so much.
NEW UPDATE - S/N Available At PFA And All Pets
Some good news! People For Animals, a low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Clayton, NJ and All Pets, a low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Mount Laurel, NJ are now scheduling spay/neuter appointments. There may be a little bit of a wait until their next available appointment dates, but they do have appointments available. You can reach People For Animals at (856) 243-5211, and more information can be found on the People For Animals website. All Pets is scheduling appointments via email, and more information can be found on their facebook page. This information is current as of 5/21/20. Please contact PFA and All Pets directly to confirm appointments are still available and to schedule.
And remember, if you are trapping a cat that needs to be fixed, please DO NOT TRAP any stray or feral cats until you have SCHEDULED AND CONFIRMED your appointment with PFA or All Pets. You don't want to have a cat in a trap and nowhere to take the cat to be fixed if there aren't any appointments available for a while.
No SOS Appointments Are Being Scheduled Right Now
Please do NOT call the appointment line or email us with appointment scheduling questions as our volunteers will be focusing their time on their families and staying safe.
The appointment line's voicemail messages will NOT be monitored until we begin holding clinics again, so we will NOT be able to return your calls. Email will only be monitored on a very limited basis, and responses may take an extended period of time.
Updates On Appointment Scheduling Status
Once we are able to resume appointment scheduling and holding clinics again, we will make an announcement on our website. So as things improve, please check this posting for status updates.
Make sure to hit refresh in your browser to ensure that you are seeing the most up-to-date post.
Don't Trap Ferals Without An Appointment
Please DO NOT TRAP any stray or feral cats unless you have VERY RECENTLY CONFIRMED your appointment with whatever clinic you originally scheduled with. Most of the clinics and veterinary offices in our area have suspended spay/neuter appointments at this time, and you don't want to have a cat in a trap and nowhere to take the cat to be fixed.
Contact A Vet Office For All Medical Needs

SOS Clinics Continue At The Somerdale VFW
We'd like to extend a very special thank you to the veterans at the VFW 7334 Raws-Tait Post where we hold our clinics. Without their support, the clinics wouldn't be possible.
We thank them very deeply for their service and for the sacrifices they have made for our country, and we're so appreciative of their help so that we can serve the local community.
Please show them your support by stopping by the Somerdale VFW and having a drink with some of these distinguished men and women.
The Struggle Before The Somerdale VFW's Help
Before finding our new home at the Somerdale VFW, CSTAR Animal Care's Spay Our Strays Clinic had a very difficult time finding a long-term location that could accommodate the clinic's needs. We spent months and months tirelessly searching for a location after Lindenwold Borough had repurposed the Lindenwold Community Center that we had been using for years.
And, after a run of bad luck at temporary locations (one had plumbing/flooding issues causing the building to be unusable, and the other had an electrical fire just a few days before CSTAR was set to sign the lease), the clinic volunteers finally thought everything would be okay when La Quinta Inn of Runnemede allowed CSTAR to rent out its ballrooms for the SOS Clinics.
But, just 6 months later, La Quinta Inn unexpectedly closed after a change in management fell through, leaving the Spay Our Strays Clinic again with nowhere to go, with just 2 weeks before CSTAR's next clinic was supposed to be held.
When the owner of Sterling Storage in Hi-Nella heard about what we had been through, he literally SAVED our clinic program by letting us use his main office building for our clinics while we started another search for a larger facility.
With no promising locations in sight during the 7 months after La Quinta closed, and none during the 19 months that we had spent looking before that, our program would have most likely closed its doors forever if it hadn't been for Sterling Storage's help and support. We are very, very grateful to everyone at Sterling Storage for everything they did for us, so we could at least keep smaller versions of our clinics going, and not leave all of the people and animals that relied on us stranded with nowhere to go.
And now, through the kindness and generosity of the members of the Somerdale VFW, we were finally able to get back to offering our full-sized mega clinics again, enabling us to help more than 200 animals in a single clinic day.
And with all of that support, 2019 became a very exciting year for CSTAR's Spay Our Strays Clinic. On August 4th, we hit a new record when we fixed 221 cats in one day. And by the end of 2019, after 114 mini and mega clinics since we started in 2013, we've spayed/neutered more than 7,900 cats and dogs, and provided more than 13,000 veterinary services appointments.
Please help us ensure that we can continue to provide outstanding service to the animals in need in our community by donating or volunteering with us.
SOS Is Still On The Lookout For A Building Of Our Own
Help Us Find A Permanent Home - What We Need In A Building
Unfortunately, it has proven to be extremely difficult to find a location which allows animals, is affordable, is available on weekends, and has adequate space for the high volume of cats and dogs that we help. We are very thankful and relieved to have found a new home at the Somerdale VFW, but we are still on the lookout for a more permanent home, where we wouldn't have to spend hours setting up and taking down the entire clinic every time we have a clinic day, and where we could offer additional services in between clinics, hold fundraisiers, hold adoption events, and more.
Additionally, with the type of luck that we've had with locations over the last few years, and the ongoing anxiety and uncertainty that a building we are using will be repurposed or will close unexpectedly, that the rent could increase beyond our budget, that new landlords or members who aren't as supportive of animal welfare programs could take over the management of the facility and no longer want clinics to be held there, plus any number of other things, it would be incredibly beneficial for us to finally have a location of our own. And on days when we don't have any clinics or events scheduled, we could even offer the use of our own facility to other community organizations.
So, if you know of any available buildings for sale or lease with owners or landlords who would might be willing to work with us on price, to donate a building, or to rent out a space to our organization at a very reduced rent, please contact us as soon as possible at (856) 537-8729.
In order to ensure a proper environment for the animals and caregivers that attend our clinic, we need a location which:
  • Is at least 2,500 to 3,600 square feet, with mostly open space, all at ground level
  • Has heat, air-conditioning, running water, electricity, and bathrooms near an entrance (so they would be accessible to the public and clinic staff)
  • Has a parking lot, or is near a parking lot that we would be able to utilize, for at least 15-45 cars
  • Is located in central Camden County, preferably near a major highway - near where Route 295 and Route 30 intersect (somewhere in between Runnemede/Barrington and Lindenwold) would be our ideal location
  • Has at least 200-300 square feet of secure storage space to store our equipment and supplies in between clinics (or has a spot near the entrance where we could setup a large cargo container)
  • Has availability on Saturdays and Sundays from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM (there are 16 to 20 clinics a year (8 to 10 Saturday mini clinics and 8 to 10 Sunday mega clinics)
You can download our full building requirements and clinic sample layouts for more details and to get a better idea of the layout of the space we need.
Contractors Needed
CSTAR is currently in need of general contractors to help us with walk-throughs on potential future clinic locations, identifying repairs/renovations which may be needed, and estimating the related costs of those repairs/renovations.
Once we secure a new location, we will also be looking for contractors to perform the repairs/renovations needed.
If you are interested in helping, please contact us at (856) 537-8729 or at info@cstarnj.org.
Volunteers Needed
Volunteering your time is one of the most valuable ways you can help animals in need. Dedicated volunteers are what makes it possible for CSTAR to save so many lives, and you can be a part of this extraordinary effort. You can make a tremendous difference by volunteering for just a few hours each month.
Currently, CSTAR has the greatest need for assistance with:
  • Organizing smaller events/fundraisers
  • Event planning/organizing large fundraisers
  • Online advertising/marketing/social media
CSTAR is also looking for volunteers to help out at the monthly clinics. There is a station for everyone at the clinic - whether you prefer working with caregivers, being more hands-on with the cats and dogs, or sticking with paperwork, there are are so many different ways that you can help.
If you are interested in volunteering with CSTAR, please contact us at volunteers@cstarnj.org.
