All of our pets undergo veterinary screenings and treatment prior to being made available for adoption. For animals in need of serious care, we treat all that is reasonable and possible as long as the animal is not suffering. Because veterinary care is never ending, there are adoption fees required for each adoption. We offer reduced fees for multiple adoptions. Donations are accepted and greatly appreciated.

A Note to Adopters
Our Story

Co-Founded in 2016 by Robin Caputo and Marti Wheat,  R & M Rockin’ Rescues works primarily in Essex, Bergen and Hudson counties in New Jersey.  We also partner with other rescue organizations, shelters, and animal wellness clinics to help local residents get feral colonies spayed and neutered and we facilitate the rescue, socialization, and adoption of cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies.

Robin and Marti met in 2010, volunteering at a Best Friends Animal Society adoption event in New York City.  They continued to volunteer for Best Friends over the next several years, participating in puppy mill rescues, super adoptions,


dog walk/adoption events, and tabling at various city-wide events.  In 2012, they began rescuing animals-in-need in their own neighborhoods and have been rescuing, socializing and adopting out cats and kittens ever since.

Robin is a teacher's aid in the Belleville, NJ, school system, working with special needs children. She worked for several years at the Bloomfield Animal Shelter. Marti is a marketing and administrative professional working in New York City, as well as a freelance writer and photographer. Together, they bring experience, determination, and dedication to their mission of helping animals.
