evie & Sadie

Meet Evie and her daughter Sadie, they're our newest senior residents. The Scottish Highlander cattle girls are 21 and 19 years old respectively. They have been together all their lives and when a small educational farm was closed by the township that owned it, the girls needed a temporary home, we were called and had the room, we went last Saturday and picked them up. Mom is just a sweetheart, loves to be brushed and groomed, Sadie not so much, she much rather her mom groom her, but we’re working on that. 

Well since then and a couple phone calls later Evie and her daughter Sadie now have their new permanent home, right here at Popcorn Park. These girls can pack away a bale of hay a day and 12 quarts of grain. They are both on medication to keep them comfortable in the old age. Scottish Highlanders longevity is about 20 years, these two are in good shape for their age and we expect Evie and Sadie to be with us for a long while. You can help us care for these two ladies by sponsoring them! You’ll get pictures and letters from the the girls about what they're doing and what's happening at the park 3 times a year a plus passes to the park and other perks.

The Popcorn Park Wildlife Club is a special sponsorship program designed to help support the residents of the refuge. Through a monthly donation you will help provide all that is needed for that particular animal's well-being, and in return, you will receive regular updates from your sponsored animal!

Popcorn Park was established in 1977 for the sole purpose of providing a refuge for wildlife that were sick, elderly, abandoned , abused, or injured, and which could no longer survive in its natural habitat. As time went on, we expanded to include exotic and domestic animals. All our residents once faced these circumstances, as well as exploitation and illegal ownership. Over 200 of these animals and birds now live in spacious surroundings in the heart of the scenic Pine Barrens in southern New Jersey. The Refuge, which is federally licensed, comprises seven acres and is graced by the indigenous Scrub Oak and Scrub Pine. You may be greeted at the gate by a gaggle of geese, but soon you will see a marvelous array of animals including a lion and lionesses. tigers, mountain lions, baboons, a serval cat, and more. Many different types of monkeys clamor for your attention in the monkey house, and the Refuge abounds with all kinds of native wildlife such as white-tailed deer, bobcats, and American black bears. Farm animals such as horses, steer. sheep, pigs, llamas and goats often look for a handout, and reptiles and tortoises enjoy their own special house. In addition, you'll find numerous species of birds have made themselves comfortable throughout the park. But what makes Popcorn Park so special is that each animal was rescued from suffering, exploitation and/or death - each has its own unique story to tell. You will learn these stories as you walk through the Refuge and as you visit this section of our web site. You have entered a quiet world where all the residents were once in danger and now are safe. So start your journey - bring your curiosity and respect for these beautiful creatures.
