Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary (ARWS) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation and conservation center providing care to sick, orphaned and injured wildlife. We are licensed by the state of New Jersey to care for squirrels, opossums, bunnies, chipmunks, raccoon, skunks, porcupine, bear, foxes, fawns and other small mammals. ARWS is an all-volunteer run 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Newton, NJ in Warren County on 120 acres of preserved farmland. We rely on the generosity of public donations, as we do not receive any state or federal funding.
The mission of Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary is to provide care and treatment to sick, injured or orphaned wild animals, rehabilitate them back to their wild state so they can be returned to their natural habitat, actively educate the public to care for and support the ecosystems and the environment they share with wildlife, and to protect and preserve our native lands.
