Badger of Newark

Badger is a phenomenally sweet guy that would just love to go back to a great home. He had a home but when his owner passed away, no one in the family could take Badger in. That was way back in February, 2016  when he was just 6 years old.  Badger has been waiting patiently ever since to be discovered! Badger has moved into Kitty City where he spends his days lounging on a perch, soaking up the sun, and socializing with other cats.

 He is so incredibly outgoing and friendly, and has zero shyness about him. He loves to meet new people and would do well with kids, cats, you name it! He has been added to our Share A Pet program so he can get lots of extra lovin' from some nice sponsors. Badger would love to meet you and he can guarantee, he'll win you over instantly!

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.
