Popcorn Park Zoo

A unusual sanctuary for abused and exotic animals in South Jersey. 

Established in 1977, Popcorn Park Zoo is a sanctuary for abandoned, injured, ill, exploited, abused or elderly wildlife, exotic and farm animals, and birds.

It houses over 200 rescued animals, and even includes a pet adoption center. Located on 7 acres in New Jersey’s beautiful Pinelands, Popcorn Park offers an environment of safety, care, and peace to its residents, a diverse array of animals unfortunate enough to need a rescue, but lucky enough to wind up here.
