Cricket of Kentucky

Several years ago, the Dixon Family of London, Kentucky visited the Society and adopted several dogs. From that time, the friendship and contact continued. As the Society alumni passed away, LaDonna and David rescued from their local area and kept us informed of any of their pets. She asked that we take in any animals she had at the time of her demise.

 Sadly, LaDonna recently passed away. Even though it was without a will (intestate), we are following her wishes. The AHS sent volunteers to her veterinarian where she had made prior arrangements for any surviving pets and within a few days, Society volunteers picked them up. We have the Dixon’s 2 dogs and 2 cats and this fabulous foursome are now ensconced at the Society’s Forked River facility in accordance with their wishes. They did not require that we keep them without benefit of adoption. Cricket and Baby are now in Kitty City for sponsorship or adoption. Cricket is a black beauty who would love affection from some new sponsors ... maybe even a permanent home. Could Cricket curl up by your hearth or in your heart?

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.
