In shelter Cat

Clifton, NJ, 07014
Pet name:
Domestic Short Hair
Sylvia is a very sweet little girl and melted all of our hearts. She definitely has a character, very curious and funny. But most of all she loves to put her front paws on your leg so that you pick her up. She loves to sit in your hands and get pet, she will rub against your face and lean on your shoulder. She is the most comfortable with a human and absolutely adores to be held, she purrs her lungs out in response. She does get stressed with other cats in the shelter so she would probably love to be the only child. :)

UPDATE 27/11/20: Sylvia can be spicy! With a right human she will be a cuddle bug, but she can be feisty and too playful with hands. She needs someone who can teach her to not play with hands and give her the exercise she needs. She is a good girl, but needs an experienced owner and she will be perfect! 

Sylvia is FIV/FeLV negative and is about a year old. She couldnt be any more ready for her new home. 

Due to the pandemic we have new measurements that we are taking at the shelter. Please read below/visit our website. 

It has been a crazy three months in the world but it has been thankfully peaceful at HAAL.
We have decided to stay closed to open public hours but will do adoptions through a new process. If you are interested in adopting please follow the steps outlined below:
Step 1: Complete an application online which can be found on and email it to
Step 2: Strong applications will be followed by a phone/ video interview when appropriate.
Step 3: A meet and greet will be scheduled after a successful interview.
(A meet and greet is not a guarantee of an approved adoption)
Basically we are eliminating some of the human face to face time at the shelter and preventing overcrowding of visitors. We believe this is the best way to continue as the country continues to grapple with Covid 19

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
