Bella of newark

In July, 2018, Bella and her sister, Nyla, found themselves in quite a predicament.  Their owner had been carted off to prison, leaving the Dogo Argentino sisters locked up in crates in the apartment without food or water.

They spent some time getting back on their feet and Bella made a full recovery.  Sadly, the same cannot be said for Nyla, who passed away just a few months later from renal failure and heart disease.  Bella puts on a brave face every day and is so grateful to be in a good place now at our AHS/Popcorn Park facility, where she awaits her forever home.

She is unrecognizable these days and is plump, healthy, happy, and the sweetest and most darling Dogo you'll ever meet.  While she's waiting for the perfect family to come along for her, Bella has been added to our Share-A-Pet program to get a little extra love and attention from some good sponsors.

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.
