Tinkerbell is a sweet senior lady that spent her life in a home without a care in the world.  In the spring of 2019, Tinkerbell's world was turned upside down when her family moved out of the country and didn't bring her along.  Tinkerbell was 13 years old when she was dropped off at our Newark facility.  The front de-clawed senior didn't know what hit her, but in time, and with lots of TLC, Tinkerbell came straight out of her shell and realized that life goes on.  She let her guard down, welcomed attention, and began head-bumping and mushing up against anyone that came to see her. 

When our Kitty City at AHS/Popcorn Park had an opening, Tinkerbell was transferred there where she has settled in and life is good again.  She spends her days lounging around, watching the birds from the many windows, socializing with the other cats, and she is back to not having a care in the world.  Tinkerbell still has dreams of going back to a good home but in the meantime, she's content and happy, and she would be thrilled if you sponsored her

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.
