Michael of Asbury Park

It was the summer of 2015 when Michael's world changed forever. His owner became ill and had to be moved into hospice care, which meant Michael had to move too. No one in the family could take in the older pit bull mix so he was brought to AHS/Popcorn Park in the hopes of getting a new home.

No one ever showed much interest in adopting this lovable lug of a boy but do not fret.....he lives a fabulous life on Animal Haven Farm! Although Michael is getting older, he still enjoys life to the fullest, every single day. He zooms about his yard, throwing around some toys with his caretaker, and enjoys a good game of tag with the sprinkler. Michael is overjoyed when his sponsors come to visit him, but unfortunately hasn't learned manners on a leash. So although he is unable to be walked by sponsors, he wants you to walk any of his friends in his place! We hope you consider becoming his part-time pet parent and friend forever by sponsoring him today! File#25338

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.
