Wildlife Baby Season

The Cedar Run Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital treats over 6,000 native wildlife each year, and over 4,000 of these wild animals that are in need of care and treatment are seen during the “Wildlife Baby Season,” between late April – September each year.

You can make a direct impact today to help provide injured and/or orphaned wildlife with the critical care they will see from our experts in wildlife, Cedar Run’s licensed Wildlife Rehabilitators.

Donate today to help thousands of wild animals have a second chance to be in the wild.

Capital Campaign: Fox Enclosure

Cedar Run’s newest Wildlife Ambassador Red Fox, Ember, is in need of a permanent home in our Wildlife Housing Area. Currently, she is in a temporary space that is typically used for our releasable wildlife patients.

You can make a direct impact to help us make the enclosure come to life and be build to last for decades, and provide the opportunity for NJ residents and students learn more about Ember and her species.

Donate towards our Capital Campaign today and help us build Ember a new permanent home!
