Your support of the Associated Humane Societies is invaluable in helping us find loving, permanent homes for the many animals that arrive in our Animal Care Centers, but also for those cats and dogs who have special medical or other needs. Those cats and dogs live in Kitty City and the Animal Haven Farm for as long as they need to be here, (although they can be adopted.) We provide their neutering, plus annual exams, inoculations, preventative treatment, and any specialized care they require. You can help us in this wonderful mission called the Share-A-Pet program by sponsoring one of these special cats or dogs.
We established the Share-A-Pet Program in February 1978 to save the lives of a number of dogs and cats who, for various reasons, were in special need of a “New Leash on Life.” The animals are selected by the AHS staff from among those at our Animal Care Facilities in Newark, Tinton Falls, and Forked River, and are those which were found to have age-related, medical, or disposition issues that make it more difficult to be adopted.
All Share-A-Pet sponsors through our web site will receive via e-mail our publication, the HUMANE NEWS, plus every four months, a photo of each dog or cat they are sponsoring and a letter telling about their health and activities. Sponsors will also receive a Share-A-Pet membership card, which entitles you to free admission to Popcorn Park Animal Refuge, for the duration of your sponsorship. Please note: Should funds for one animal exceed the cost of their care, they are applied to all animals on the Share-A-Pet Program.
You are also invited to come and visit your Share-A-Pet, take him for walks, bring her treats, and .... even adopt him or her! These very special animals are deserving of your love AND your support. Please help and sponsor a Share-A-Pet.
