Fred and Wilma

Fred and Wilma were found in such a sad state when their family vacated their home and left them behind in a cage.  The elderly         shihtzus were starving, sick, and matted beyond recognition.  They spent a good deal of time enjoying a much-needed spa day, and then underwent several weeks of medical treatment.  Fred and Wilma are now feeling better than they have in years!  These two have some special needs, which has made finding them a home a bit more difficult.  Fred is completely blind and somewhat deaf, and Wilma has pretty severe arthritis.  They both need eye ointment and pain management meds indefinitely.  Aside from that, all they ask is for people to treat them with love and kindness.  They're around 13 years old and they're inseparable.  They would love you forever if you became their new sponsor.

We established the Share-A-Pet Program in February 1978 to save the lives of a number of dogs and cats who, for various reasons, were in special need of a “New Leash on Life.” The animals are selected by the Society staff from among those at our Animal Care Centers which the Society considers unadoptable due to age, handicap, medical problems, abuse, length of stay, etc. All Share-A-Pet sponsors through our web site will receive via e-mail the Society’s publication, the HUMANE NEWS, plus every four months, a color photo of each dog or cat they are sponsoring and a letter telling about the health and activities of the animal. All sponsors will also receive a Share-A-Pet membership card, which entitles you to free admission to Popcorn Park Zoo for the duration of your sponsorship. Please note: Should funds for one animal exceed the cost of its care, they are applied to all cats and dogs in need on the Share-A-Pet Program.

The following services are available at the Forked River Shelter: - Adoption and surrender of cats, dogs and small animals seven days a week. - Radio-dispatched ambulances on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. - Popcorn Park Animal Clinic, a modern Medical Dept, staffed by licensed veterinarians to treat and care for privately owned animals and shelter animals. - Spay/Neuter services. - Animal Haven Farm and Kitty City - the homes of our Share-A-Pet dogs and cats. - Home of Popcorn Park, a 7 acre refuge providing a permanent home for injured, ill, handicapped, abandoned, abused and exploited wildlife, birds, exotic and farm animals. - Humane Education programs and tours.
