Popcorn Park

The Associated Humane Societies, founded in 1906, is the largest animal sheltering system in New Jersey.  We comprise three shelters located in Newark, Forked River, and Tinton Falls .  Our 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 our devotion to the thousands of animals that we care for annually and the chance for a better life we offer them.  Please learn more about the Society and Popcorn Park Zoo throughout our web site, watch A Century of Caring, visit the zoo, public service, and the various programs we have for them. Come back often, because good things are always happening because AHS Cares!
