Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park

Forked River, NJ

We are a non-profit animal welfare organization that was founded in 1906 that cares for thousands of animals of every species and breed every year. We operate three animal shelters in NJ as well as Popcorn Park Animal Refuge, a sanctuary for abandoned, abused and injured wildlife, exotics and farm animals. We go above and beyond for animals that come to us as victims of severe neglect and/or extensive injuries and feel that every animal deserves a chance at living a happy and full life again. We support our communities with low cost spay/neuter days and operate a mobile veterinary clinic that travels to areas where the residents face financial challenges, but still want to provide for their pets. We offer them low cost vaccines and wellness checks as well. We have two sanctuaries for dogs and cats that may not be adoptable due to various issues, and provide a peaceful, full life for them at our Forked River location. As our economy struggles, our organization struggles as well, since we rely so much on the kindness and generosity of our supporters. Every donation is so important to our animals, and so greatly appreciated.
