Mercedes of Newark

mercedes of newark

Mercedes has not given up on finding a great home, but since she's been with us at AHS/Popcorn Park for over a year now and no one has shown much interest in this sweet, senior girl, she's becoming our newest Share A Pet.  She's around 10 years old but still has the spunk of a puppy, so what better place for her than our Animal Haven Farm, where she'll have large living quarters, a huge yard to frolic in, and lots of nice people to take her for walks?

Mercedes and her pal Midnight were surrendered in December, 2019, when their owner became homeless.  Mercedes and Midnight get along fine, but their personalities clash from time to time, so they do not need to be adopted together.  Mercedes has only ever gotten along with Midnight and doesn't care for other pets, hence the reason she's been with us for so long.  She sure does love people though, and is so affectionate, outgoing, and she has such a beautiful personality.  If you can't adopt Mercedes, we hope you'll become her sponsor and give her a little extra love and attention in her golden years!  File#43138

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.
