I was introduced to this wonderful organization and the gloved angels who work there in February 2015 through the live web cam that featured Mike the orphaned bear cub. I was one of those who became addicted to watching this beautiful little bear and became impressed with the care he received at Woodlands. Though his life was short he enriched and educated many people. Since his passing, Woodlands has installed cameras with help from the MFC (Mike's Fan Club) and has increased their ability to educate (and entertain) the public of the wide variety of animals they care for each year (1,100 animals so far in 2016). The dedicated, professional staff (and volunteers) go above and beyond to care for and enrich the lives of all the animals they receive in preparation of returning them to the wild. Woodlands Wildlife Refuge is at the top of my short list of organizations I support with monetary donations (or items they need) whenever I am able.

It has been my great privilege to watch the exemplary work of the fine dedicated staff at WWR. They lovingly care for each and every animal they receive while maintaining a clean environment for them. I've even seen them spend many long nights at the refuge to ensure the animals receive the necessary ongoing care before they are returned to the wild. They deserve the greatest praise for their work.

I love the work that Woodlands Wildlife Refuge does. They care for the littlest mouse to the largest bear and everyone in between. We need more places like that in New Jersey and all over!!

Woodlands Wildlife Refuge does an incredible job of protecting animals from an otherwise uncertain future. People bring in all kinds of injured and abandoned animals, and no critter is turned away. I am so amazed at the tireless work that they do. This year, I believe that they have cared for over 1,000 animals who came to them with various injuries and illnesses. It is so heartwarming to know that people like this exist. Their compassion of animals is endless and I am happy that I have gotten to know some of the staff. Wishing them continued success and support.

They go above and beyond for the animals in their care! I've attended some of their fundraising events and their employees and volunteers have the biggest hearts and passion for what they do. They are a necessity to the wildlife they save and release.

I am writing this review because I believe so strongly about Woodlands Wildlife and the difference this refuge makes for our community. Not only do they rescue/save/rehabilitate huge amounts of small animals and large, but they also educate young people and adults. It is clean, professional and organized. Veterinarians in training are involved from time to time, not to mention the staff that dedicates many hours during the crazy spring/summer when hundreds of injured and/or abandoned critters arrive daily. Hats off to you Woodlands!!

I love this place and the work that they do! I only found out about them about a year ago. Since that time I have been to the location to drop donated items, and recently, to attend Community Day. What an awesome experience!! I learned so much about their educational animals. The staff graciously answered all my questions about wildlife big and small. It's nice knowing that they are there if I need them. I live in a heavily wooded area with lots of wildlife roaming around. Now, if I come across an injured or abandoned animal, I feel like I can get it the help it needs.

Woodlands Wildlife Rehab is a fabulous nonprofit organization. They care for all wildlife big or small. They have educated me in the caring of wildlife and always want the best for the animals. I first learned about Woodlands through the web bear cam in the caring of 2 small bears. Since then I have learned about all kinds of wildlife. We have been privileged to see them care for many different species. Never have I seen such dedication from not only the staff and its fabulous leader but also the many volunteers that share their time to rehabilitate many wounded and orphaned wild animals. Every release is a blessing. They educate the public on the proper procedures of handling wildlife and the many steps it takes to get them healthy enough for release. They are such caring and devoted people. I follow them on the web daily and enjoy all of the animals they have introduced me to.
