Troy

Troy

Raised with love all of my life, I never had a moment of worry or strife. Until the day I heard they were selling the farm; then my heart was filled with alarm. Where would I, Star and Surprise be living? Would we find someone to always be loving and giving? Enter Popcorn Park who allayed our fears -- we're still together and life is great here!


Troy is a friendly, outgoing 20 year old pinto mini who'd lived all his life with his folks on their farm. When the elderly couple could no longer manage the property, Troy, Star and Surprise needed someplace to go. They found Popcorn Park, and settled in nicely. Troy enjoys other animals, even the emu on the other side of the fence from their area when they first arrived! Over the years, Star passed away, and more recently, Early Surprise. Troy would love some extra love - could you sponsor this sweet, easygoing guy?

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.
