Marnie came to AHS when she was 4 months old with her litter mates. They were a semi feral litter that needed a home that was ready to give them time and understanding to help them come around. Marnie was adopted with her sibling Millie after AHS worked with their socialization skills, but the two still needed socialization training in the home. They were returned after 4 months because they hid and the owners didn’t have time to socialize them. Once returned, the two cats took a serious step back in their already neglected socialization habits. Although Marnie is very shy, once she warms up to someone she will sit for cuddles for hours. She is put on our Share-A-Pet program to gain sponsors that understand some animals need more time and patience than others. Here at AHS we are happy to give both girls all the time and patience they need, and we continue to work on their socialization skills daily. They are making huge strides every day, but would still love the love and support from a sponsor. Will you be the sponsor Marnie is looking for?

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.
