Neeks of South Toms River

Neeks of South Toms River

We'll never know what Neeks endured in her previous life.  She obviously suffered neglect for many years before coming to us in June, 2019.  She was brought in by someone that claimed to have found the older boxer as a stray.  She had, "Neeks" scribbled on her collar, but we knew little else about her, except that she desperately needed our help.  Neeks was covered in bleeding, open sores from a terrible skin infection.  She's been with us quite a while now and has come such a long way, but she still receives laser treatment for her skin, as well as medications for allergies and some other medical issues.

Through it all, Neeks couldn't be any sweeter or more loving.  She's such a great girl that loves everyone she meets.  She hopes for a good, caring home one day but in the meantime, she's been added to our Share-A-Pet program so that she can get some extra love and attention from good sponsors, like you!

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.
