The Popcorn Rescue Zoo is an amazing place home to wildlife, farm animals, birds, and other animals who suffered cruelty, injury, illness, handicap, old age, and animals and birds that could not be safely returned to the wild.

I've been to the Popcorn Park Zoo many times. I love visiting the zoo, from feeding the peacocks, and seeing the wonderful animals and the awesome people that work at the zoo. It's the perfect place in the Pine Barrens of Ocean County and is now home to over 200 animals and birds.

We partnered with the Popcorn Park Rescue Zoo for well over 10 years to help adopt a loving cat and dog. So many listeners came through and gave an animal the best gift possible, a home.

So many of you support the refuge through monetary donations and food and blankets for the animals up for adoption, looking for their forever homes. The Popcorn Park Zoo is located at 1 Humane Way, Forked River, NJ. Their phone number is 609-693-1900.

From the popcorn park zoo webpage:

The inception of Popcorn Park began in September of 1977 when a raccoon entered our care after being badly injured by a leghold trap. Due to the severity of his injuries, the raccoon later known as Rigby, was unable to be released into the wild. Popcorn Park has grown immensely over the last 45 years and we are looking forward to continued expansion.
