Kovu of Nutley

Kovu is a gorgeous young cat that lived through such a traumatic experience.  He was one of countless cats that were found to be living in deplorable conditions in April, 2019 after their owner passed away.  The Nutley, NJ residence was found to house many cats that were being bred, and lived among garbage and feces.  Many of these poor souls knew little of human interaction and were so scared when they arrived. 

With lots of love and encouragement from our staff, these cats learned to adjust to living happy, healthy lives for the first time.  Many have been adopted but Kovu still awaits a patient, loving home.  He is such a sweet, gentle boy that is every cat's best friend.  He also adores his caretaker, Jay, but Kovu is still a little shy around new people.  Kovu has joined our Share-A-Pet program while he waits for that very special home to be offered to him

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.
