Daphany of Irvington

daphany of irvington

It's obvious that Daphany led a sad life prior to being picked up as a stray in Irvington, NJ in June, 2019.  She recently had puppies, but she also had deep scarring around her abdomen and feet from being tied with a rope or chain, and several broken teeth too.  None of this tarnished the 4 year old, adorable little girl's outlook on life. She's always overjoyed to make new friends and nothing makes Daphany happier than to wiggle up into your lap and get lots of attention. 

Daphany put her past behind her but then, to add to her story, she was diagnosed with vestibular disease.  This condition is not life-threatening, but it causes her to have a permanent head-tilt.  Daphany just can't win, but she hopes that she'll win you over, and that you'll become her sponsor or better yet, welcome her into your heart and home.   File 39064 (Forked River)

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.
