Toby the Patas Monkey


Dogo welcomed a new friend Toby. Toby was also rescued from the same lab years ago and was with a small troop. He also was the subordinate of the group and as he got older, he shied away from the others and started to get depressed. The rescue group asked if he could come to Popcorn Park since Archie, Dogo’s roommate, had passed last year. Arrangements were made and Toby was here within the week. They were put in pens right next to each other for an introduction and the next week were put together. They happily became close friends at first sight. Dogo and Toby both have come out of their shells and being together has made them so much more comfortable, even around staff that they had shied away from before. They love being together, spending all day outside when the weather is nicer. Toby would love some sponsors.

The Popcorn Park Wildlife Club is a special sponsorship program designed to help support the residents of the refuge. Through a monthly donation you will help provide all that is needed for that particular animal's well-being, and in return, you will receive regular updates from your sponsored animal!

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.
