Little Girl, White-Tailed Deer

Little Girl

I was raised by a family who thought they did the right thing by taking me out of the wild as a baby. Often fawn are brought to us that are thought to have been abandoned by their mother, but actually they leave their baby in a safe place while they are away. Unless a fawn is thin and covered in ticks, their mother is close by waiting for you to leave. 

The family meant to do well when they raised her, not realizing that she would never be able to live in her own habitat again. Fish and Game contacted us to see if we had room, and early in 2004, Little Girl arrived. She is in with her other Deer friends that all came to us for the same reason. We hope their story will raise awareness to leave wildlife in the wild.

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.
