The Society has many ways for you to help our animals. You'll find several unique opportunities to support our cats and dogs as well as our Popcorn Park residents below. These include the Share-A-Pet Program, The Popcorn Park Wildlife Club, The Popcorn Park Zoological Society, the Vested Interest Fund and the Res-Q Fund. Of course, if you wish to make a general donation, the Society will carefully apply your gift where it is needed most, and if you have toured our web site, you know caring for thousands of animals annually offers many opportunities!
Below are listed some additional ways you can help:
Yankee Candle Fundraising!
Holiday shopping is upon us and now when you're buying those gifts for that special someone, you can help animals here at Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park at the same time. We are so excited to have partnered with Yankee Candle in an effort to raise funds for the medical care that we provide for the hundreds of animals here at Associated Humane Societies. Yankee Candle donates 40% of your purchase to us! It's so easy:
Off The Racks - Adoption Awareness
Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park has teamed up with Off The Racks to raise adoption awareness and funds for the animals at our shelter. Simply drop off your unwanted current style women's and teen clothing in good condition and home decor to the Bayville location (950 Route 9) and put them under the POPCORN PARK account to raise money for the many animals in our shelter.
They are now also a drop off center for the items on our Wishlist to help care for the animals in the shelter. You can find our Wishlist by clicking here.
Make the Shelter Great - Donate Paint!
Help us paint the AHS Tinton Falls Shelter! The plan is to paint one full kennel and the outside of the building. Multiple items are needed -not just paint. Also needed are rollers, brushes, trays, tape and the rental of a floor sander. Find complete information here about how you can help and donate. Also accepted are gift cards to Home Depot and Lowes or local hardware stores, which can be dropped off or mailed to the Tinton Falls shelter. Just check the link for complete details.

* Donate A Playhouse! Perhaps your children have grown and the plastic playhouses that decorate your backyard are no longer in use. The Society's dogs enjoy the outdoors and are able to stay in the shade and enjoy the pineland breezes without the sun's strong rays. If you have a children's plastic playhouse that you would like to donate, please bring to our Tinton Falls or Forked River facility. Here you see Share-A-Pets Rocky and Hank trying playhouses on for size on the Animal Haven Farm.
