Tye of Irvington

tye of irvington

Tye has been through so much since coming to us in January, 2020 from Irvington, NJ when he was found as a neglected stray puppy.  The shy and sweet Cane Corso was so thin and had bilateral cherry eyes, and he practically crawled to new people because he was just so scared.  With lots of love and attention from our staff, Tye learned to trust again and came out of his shell.  He put weight on and he underwent surgery to repair his cherry eyes too.  Tye was finally ready for a home and was adopted by a wonderful previous adopter.  Sadly, Tye decided that he wanted to be the only pet in the home, so he was returned a short time later.  

Tye was later adopted again but this time, his adopters had second thoughts about caring for a large dog and returned him.  Tye came back with an injured hind leg that was caused by a severely luxating patella.  At less than a year old, Tye underwent his second major surgery!  Tye is now on a strict regiment of restricted exercise, and has many weeks of physical therapy ahead of him.  We've added this big, lovable lug to our Share-A-Pet program in the meantime, so he can get a little extra attention from some great sponsors.  He's such a giant silly puppy that loves being with people, and visiting with some nice sponsors sure would help in his recovery!  Please consider becoming Tye's newest sponsor!

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.
