Adopt A Wild One
 
OrionYou 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. 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. 

Or maybe you'd prefer 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".

Tommy

And then there is Tommy, the eastern box turtle. Tommy came to us in 1994, after being rescued by a passerby who noticed him crossing a road.  It was apparent that the box turtle had suffered many old injuries. Healed cracks in his top and bottom shell plus a fissure from his left eye to his mouth most likely occurred from a previous vehicle impact.  The box turtle was also found to be missing most of his rear right leg.  From the appearance of the healed leg injury, the leg had been torn or bitten off by a predator (such as a fox, raccoon, or even a dog).  The staff surmised that all of the old injuries occurred during his adult life. He had probably been kept indoors as a pet during some or all of his first four to six years which are the critical years of healthy shell formation.  His carapace, the top domed section of his shell, was found to be misshapen, a sign of metabolic bone disorder (MBD). He now lives in the reptile room in our Nature Center and is one of our most popular Wildlife Ambassadors and Adopts.
