The Associated Humane Societies, founded in 1906, is the largest animal sheltering system in New Jersey. They comprise three shelters located in Newark, Forked River, and Tinton Falls . Their Forked River facility also includes Popcorn Park Zoo. Established in 1977, Popcorn Park Zoo is a sanctuary for abandoned, injured, ill, exploited, abused or elderly wildlife, exotic and farm animals, and birds.
The Society is a not for profit, 501 (c) 3 organization, and Popcorn Park is also a federally licensed zoo. The Society prides itself on their devotion to the thousands of animals that they care for annually and the chance for a better life they offer them.
