Adopt a Pet, Sponsor A Pet,
or Make a Donation to AHS/Popcorn Park
SWEETER THAN A CANDY HEART; cuddlier than a teddy bear; more precious than any jewelry. That’s the gift that loving pet owners receive every day. Yet, everyday hundreds of stray, abandoned and unwanted cats, dogs, kittens and puppies being cared for at Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park’s three Animal Shelters in Forked River, Tinton Falls and Newark wait for new homes – new families to cuddle with and share the love.
And now more than ever, hundreds of stray and abandoned cats, dogs, kittens and puppies served by Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park need someone who loves them.
Bernie, above, and Munchkin, below, are waiting at our Forked River shelter for Cupid to help them find their forever homes.
“For us and for the animals we care for, the situation is becoming dire. As our nation’s economy spirals downward, so have donations to Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park,” said Roseann Trezza, our Executive Director. “Meanwhile, the numbers of animals being turned in to us, or found abandoned or stray have skyrocketed, as so many people can no longer afford to care for their pets. Caring for all these animals with dwindling donations is becoming a greater challenge.”
Want to show your love of animals this Valentine season? Here are some ways you can be a sweetheart and help the animals at Associated Humane Societies and the people who care for them:
* Agree with your loved one that the money you would spend for flowers, candy and other frivolities of the season will be donated to AHS/Popcorn Park instead. You won’t have to worry if your gift is good enough, and your recipients will love you forever! What’s more, it’s the only Valentine gift that’s tax deductible. Donate today!
* Share the love and bring a new pet into your family. Associated Humane Societies has plenty dogs, puppies, cats and kittens looking for happy homes. To get a sneak peek at any of the animals available for adoption, log on to Petfinder . Staff members can act as Cupids and help you decide which animal is the best fit for you and your lifestyle.
* Sponsor a pet! Can't adopt? You can sponsor a sweet and deserving cat or dog residing in Kitty City or the Animal Haven Farm through our Share-A-Pet Program. You can also visit your sponsored pet - walk a dog or have your kitty curl up in your lap and purr; they love to be visited! It's a win-win for you, your special pet and the Society. Sponsor a Share-A-Pet for Valentine's Day!
