Humane Heroes March 2021

April 9, 2021

Our supporters never cease to amaze us… are some Humane Heroes for animals for March!

Collected donations in lieu of birthday gifts!

Check out these Junior Humane Heroes!  At just 7 and 4 years old, James and Benton Nobile decided to forfeit their requests for birthday presents for themselves, and instead, ask for donations for our animals here at AHS/Popcorn Park!  Can you believe it?  Nothing like starting out young; being kind, humane, and caring about animals.  James and Benton stopped by recently to drop off the many, many donations that they collected for our animals and we cannot thank them enough!  Their selfless act of kindness has gone such a long way in helping so many animals that are with us while they await their forever home.  Thank you so much James and Benton, and Happy Birthday from all of us!

Song Created to Help Shelter Pets!

All of us at Associated Humane Societies would like to thank the band, American Road, for this beautiful song, “Who Saved Who”.  American Road visited our AHS Tinton Falls facility recently to film a portion of this video that is dedicated to shelter dogs everywhere.  Please watch, listen, and share!  A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the song will be donated to AHS to help more animals in need.  Thanks so much!

We would like to send a huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to Alphabets Preschool Center in Asbury Park.  They held a fundraiser for our Tinton Falls facility, in memory of Dragon, a beautiful little dog that was loved by both the children and faculty at Alphabets.  Dragon was Ms. Piekarski and Ms. Bridget’s dog, and was the mascot of the preschool.  After a long, happy, and much-loved life, he passed away over the winter and the staff and students all came together to honor his memory, and help other animals in need by holding a donation drive.  They delivered tons of donations to our Tinton Falls location and we can’t thank them enough for their efforts! 

Tuckerton Family makes treats for AHS/Popcorn Park Dogs!

It’s so heartwarming to see young people going out of their way to wonderful things for animals in need!  Tanya Trettin of Tuckerton, NJ, and her Humane Hero family baked a ton of peanut butter dog treats for all of the dogs at AHS/Popcorn Park!  They did it simply because they love animals, and they love to bake!  We can’t thank them all enough, and our shelter dogs thank them too!  Pictured from left to right are:  Tori, Myalee, Josephine, and Sam.

Barnegat Boy Scouts Help AHS/Popcorn Park Animals!

We want to thank these giving young men for all they’re doing for shelter animals!  Boy Scout Troop #61 from Barnegat, NJ held a donation drive for our animals at AHS/Popcorn Park.  They collected tons of dog beds and food, paper towels and cleaning supplies, and so much more!  Our animals sure appreciate all you’re doing to better their lives during their stay with us, and we thank you too!  Great job boys!

Girl Scout Makes Toys for AHS/Popcorn Park Cats!

All of us at AHS/Popcorn Park (and all of our cats too!) would like to send out a HUGE thank you to Autumn from Girl Scout Troop #8498!  For her Silver Award, Autumn and friends made tons of cat toys out of recycled items for all of the cats at our Lacey location.   Thanks so much Autumn!
