Mamba of Newark

Mamba is a big, beautiful senior boy that was surely someone's loving and loyal dog, but that person sure let him down.  Mamba was found wandering the streets of Newark, NJ in the winter of 2020 with several wounds and infections, and with a huge mass on his shoulder.  Despite all this, Mamba couldn't be any sweeter when he was rescued.  He underwent surgery to remove the mass and spent many weeks under medical care, and Mamba made a complete recovery! 

Unfortunately, Mamba's mass was found to be malignant and despite it being removed, that area will need to be closely watched going forward.  Mamba is such a good, loving, gentle boy that loves everyone he meets.  Due to his age and his medical concerns, it's been more difficult to find Mamba a home, so while he awaits that special someone, we've added him to our Share-A-Pet program so he can get some extra love and attention from some great sponsors.

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.
