When I arrived at the shelter I was grimy and thin; lonely and forlorn was the state I was in. But my future looked up when John Bergmann happened by; I don’t know the reason, but I caught his eye. I traveled to Forked River under the General Manager’s wing; and soon had the best of everything. I have some good friends, but could I call you mine? If you don’t mind that I’m deaf, we’ll get along just fine!

Cid came to us as a lonely stray in October 2009. Between then and June 2010, she was adopted and returned twice. She has a very high energy level, and she is deaf. Cid was just 2 years old when she was returned, but will be going on her 11th birthday this year. She has mellowed out with age, but she is still playful as a puppy when she gets going. Because of this, she is a little rough with small children, and although she is great with other dogs, she does like to chase cats. So for now she is having a great time on the Animal Haven Farm.
Cid would love you to share a part of your heart with her; she would also love a home, but only one with great patience to work with her deafness and energy level!

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.
