Oreo was just a kitten when he was found as a stray, stuck to the velcro of a local resident's grill cover one spring day in 2009.  The sweet little guy came to us and was a little on the shy side, but he was friendly and happy to be safe and sound.  Oreo was adopted quickly but was returned when his owner had to go into assisted living, and Oreo has gone unnoticed ever since.  It's been over a decade since Oreo came through our doors, and he's now approaching his, "senior years", even though he doesn't look a day older to us.  Oreo is still a bit of a shy guy, but he loves people and will be your friend if you just give him a little time and space.  10 years is a long time to wait for a good home, but Oreo has plenty of love and companionship from our staff and his feline friends.  He's been added to our Share-A-Pet program so he can get a little extra attention from some good sponsors and better yet.....maybe one of those sponsors will welcome Oreo home.

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.
