ahs needs your help on giving tuesday

Giving Tuesday is being held on May 5th in response to the unprecedented need that has been created by the COVID-19 pandemic.  This is a global day of giving and of unity, and of recognizing the hard work and sacrifices being made by so many throughout the world as we deal with these tough times that we're living in.  All of us at Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park would like to praise the efforts of the countless individuals that are on the front lines every day, dealing with this virus in one way or another.  From doctors, nurses, paramedics, and all those in the health care field, to first responders, grocery store workers, and so many others, our hats are off to you, and our gratitude is deeply heartfelt.

As an animal welfare organization, we realize that animals may not be in the forefront of people's hearts and minds right now.  On the other hand, so many people are continuing to support what we do here at Associated Humane Societies.  We continue to respond to animal control calls, going out to assist the public with issues with their own pets, stray animals, and wildlife calls.  As it is now baby season, our Animal Control Officers are out in full force, rescuing baby animals from storm drains, from resident's backyards and attics, and going into people's homes to assist with animal-related issues.  Our staff are putting the needs of animals first to care for the hundreds and hundreds of animals that depend on us.  We care for all species and breeds at our facilities in Newark, Tinton Falls, and Forked River, and at our Popcorn Park Animal Refuge, and we are grateful that people still follow the stories of animal rescue that are happening every day, since there is a daily need for animal welfare work, no matter what is going on in the world.

On Giving Tuesday, we ask that you find it in your heart to remember us at Associated Humane Societies.  Remember that we're still here, saving animals, caring for animals, finding them new homes, rehabilitating those that need us, and we will continue to be here to help them, no matter what.  Please donate whatever you can on Giving Tuesday.  Every single donation goes toward our mission of helping animals in need.  Thank you all so much for your continued support.  Stay safe & be well.
