Reeses

Share:

Reeses came to us in November of 2014 with his friend Buttons, turned in by their owner who could no longer care for them. The boys were terribly neglected and suffering for it. After lots of brushing, cleaning, and good medical treatment, the boys got back on their feet and were like brand new kittens. Unfortunately, we soon discovered that Buttons had an enormous mass in his lung. His condition deteriorated rapidly and sadly, he left us to go on to a better place, leaving Reeses without his best buddy.
Reeses is about 6 years old and was declawed by his owner. He has arthritis in his back legs, due in part to the declawing, and is on injectable medication monthly to make him more comfortable but he still enjoys a full and happy life. He is a big, lovable, boy who just adores people and cats alike. All Reeses asks for is to be treated with kindness, and to have some good friends to share his life with. Could you share your love with Reeses?

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.

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.
