Shadow came to us in January of 2018 after her owner passed away. She lived in a home with other cats and some stray friends that her owner was caring for.  Our animal control officer spent several days locating and trapping Shadow's stray friends so they also could have a chance at finding a permanent home.  Shadow and Willie are the only cats left of the bunch that are still here with us.  The other cats have since been adopted into great homes, but Shadow at 11.5 years old has been overlooked, which sadly does happen often in shelter life.

There are many perks to having an older cat, such as they are almost always litter trained, already set in their ways with routines and habits and usually pretty mellow.  Shadow loves to sit in the window in Kitty City and sunbathe, she can be a little shy when first meeting you but will eventually soak up any attention you're willing to give her.   In hopes of gaining some friends thru sponsorship, we think that Shadow will melt your heart as she did ours.  Please consider sponsoring her or even better yet...adopting!!  Shadow is looking forward to be your new pen pal when you sponsor her.

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.
