Adopt A Wild One
Screech OwlYou can help one of our injured or orphaned animals by "adopting" it for a year. Your support provides food, medicine, veterinary treatment and lots of tender loving care. In addition, you'll receive the animal's photo and adoption certificate.

You might want to open your heart to Orion, a bald eagle or Reggie, an eastern screech owl. Orion, an adult male bald eagle, flew into high-tension power lines on the plains of Wyoming and can no longer fly free. During his rehabilitation, Orion was blinded in his left eye during a scuffle with another eagle. Cedar Run became his permanent home in March of 2000. Since his arrival here, Orion has inspired visitors as an ambassador to his species, which is endangered in NJ. Reggie, a female eastern screech owl, was brought to our rehabilitation hospital as a juvenile after an impact injury caused permanent blindness in her left eye. Although Reggie is able to fly around in our screech enclosure, she must remain in captivity. She is unable to hunt and could easily be preyed upon by other animals. Even though Reggie is small in stature, she is big in personality. After eight years of working programs as an education raptor, Reggie is now comfortably "retired".

And then there is Tommy, the eastern box turtle. Tommy came to us in fairly bad shape a few years ago. He was taken in by a well meaning family, however, not understanding what box turtles need, they fed him an all-vegetarian diet. As a result of not getting enough protein, Tommy developed a metabolic bone disorder. This resulted in a crack in his shell, a malformed beak (yes, turtles have beaks) and he lost the ability to close his shell completely. Box turtles are so named because they have a hinge on their shell so they can completely close themselves in for protection and hibernation. When Tommy lost this ability, he was not able to protect himself from the family's dog, and he lost most of one of his hind legs as a result. He now lives in the snake room in our Nature Center and is one of our most popular Wildlife Ambassadors and Adopts.
