& Popcorn Park



Imagine being all cozy and comfortable in your home, the only home you've ever known .... sleeping in bed, hanging out with your family, enjoying life ... then it all ends. You're scooped up, put in a carrier, and brought to an unfamiliar place where you don't know a soul. It's hard, to say the least. This is what happened to Marv when at 6 years old, his family moved and couldn't bring Marv along.

 In May, 2017, Marv's world was turned upside down. Marv was distraught at first, who wouldn't be? But this strong, resilient, beautiful cat decided to hold his head high and get on with his life. He began making new friends, both human and feline, and is now a well-adjusted social butterfly! Marv is available for adoption of course, but since he's been overlooked for quite a while, he's been added to our Share A Pet program to get a little extra love and attention from some nice sponsors. He walked into Kitty City like he owns the place so if you come in to spend time with him, Marv will be at the front door, ready to greet you!

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.
