Seven the Belgian


Hey! Come play with me in sun or in snow!

Once I was starved and neglected beyond belief, but I turned over a new leaf.  Seven is a Belgian draft horse that originally came in with her mother. We built new barns for the two and our other equines, and planted grass for them all (no easy feat in the Pinelands!). 

Seven is a beautiful young horse, but since she was starve as a baby she has always tried eating everything (and anything). Sadly, this includeds sand, rocks, twigs, etc. She had a surgery to remove a large blockage from her, and since then she has to wear a basket muzzle while in her field. Although she is always offered more than enough food, she still has this same bad habit.


She loves the snow, and rolling around in fresh grass. She likes to watch the visitors drive into our driveway, and she has served as the greeter of the zoo for many years now. 

You can't miss her, and her stunning blonde hair. We hope you will sponsor her today!

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.
