Essential Information

Humane Way at Lacey Rd.
Forked River, NJ 08731

Operated by the Associated Humane Societies, this zoo & on-site shelter keeps & cares for rescued animals. Visitor favorites include Sweet Pea the deer; Tammy the Turnpike Turkey, who was rescued from the NJ Turnpike; and Princess the Camel who “predicts” NFL winners during football season. (Princess chooses which hand she’d like to receive a treat from her feeder, which corresponds to a team.)
Tour Tip: Learn about the stories of the animals on the website or while you’re at the zoo with your family. “Our goal is to have people walk out of here with more compassion for animals,” says general manager John Bergmann.
