Yukon of Newark

Yukon is a fun-loving husky that came to us back in July, 2017, when his family gave him up due to being unable to care for him any longer. We have to wonder if they ever cared much about him to begin with. His care was neglected, as were his exercise and training needs, so poor Yukon was just like a high-energy puppy that never had anything to do. He was a bit out of control when he arrived but just the sweetest, happiest guy you'll ever meet. Our staff began working with him and once Yukon was given some attention and direction, he really showed his lovable and loyal side. He is so smart and knows how to behave, he just needs someone that cares enough to spend some time with him. Yukon is a free spirit and makes friends for life. He loves people and gets along great with lots of dogs that he meets too. He has been overlooked for so long now, so Yukon has been added to our Share A Pet program so that he can get some extra attention from great sponsors. If you can't adopt Yukon, he would love for you to be his part-time pet parent! File#27427.

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.
