I have been a volunteer at Antler Ridge for the past 3 years and love every minute I get to help the animals. It is so rewarding to see a young animal come in and get the care it needs to be released back into the wild. I have always loved helping animals and here at Antler Ridge I get a chance to make a difference. I'm so glad I am part of this extraordinary organization.

The volunteers are filled with energy, enthusiasm, humor and compassion. The sanctuary provides care for so many critters, with the help of the volunteers and Dr. Karen. Any donations made to this organization are put to good use.

Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary is run by people who are caring and committed to the welfare of animals in need. I'm proud to be a volunteer at ARWS and enjoy working there each week to help the animals. ARWS has a great relationship with the community which has come to respect and depend on Antler Ridge as a safe refuge for sick or injured animals.

I have been volunteering at Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary for nearly seven years and I am constantly impressed by the individualized care and compassion the animals receive. All of the creatures at our facility are afforded the best treatment by a dedicated staff of volunteers and apprentices,
veterinarian Dr Karen, and most notably Kelly, our hands-on director. All of the animals that find themselves at Antler Ridge are given a second chance at life to live free and healthy as the wild beings they are!

A dear friend of mine volunteers at Antler Ridge (AR). It has been through her work there that I have developed a greater awareness and appreciation of my surroundings since I live in rural Sussex County. AR is a wonderful place for abandoned or injured animal wildlife like squirrels, opposums, bats that are well taken care of from as young as new borns to adults and released to their natural habitat when appropriate. I have had opportunities to see the volunteers in action caring for their "charges".. The volunteers are experienced in animal care and handling, and/or animal housing maintenance. The love they have for these animals is evidenced by the excellent work they clearly do. Also, they routinely educate the public in the ways of care for the surrounding wood lands shared with these critters.

You don't need to travel to Orlando to find the Magic Kingdom - it's right here in New Jersey at Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary. This is a place of magic and miracles supported by amazing dedicated volunteers with a mission to serve the area wildlife in peril due to injury or being orphaned. In addition it's an organization that partners within the community to support initiatives such as Project Self Sufficiency, environmental education seminars for the public, internship opportunities, nature programs for kids and work study for teens - and much more. Antler Ridge clearly deserves thumbs-up recognition on the list of GreatNonprofits!

My friends volunteer at Antler Ridge. Their dedication is only matched by how hard they work , how tired I see them, and how much they care about the "critters" to whom they give such great care.
