Adopt A Wild One

Give the gift of wildlife, or treat yourself, and help protect the future of New Jersey’s wildlife and habitats.

Cedar Run cares for thousands of animals each year, including nearly 60 resident animals who are unable to be returned to the wild. These animals, known as our Wildlife Ambassadors, are given a second chance at life through our education programs. Your support provides food, shelter and medical care for the sponsored animal and helps provide care for the more than 6,000 wild animals admitted to the Wildlife Hospital each year.

Not sure who to choose? Visit our Resident Wildlife page to see their stories.
