Woodlands Wildlife Refuge, located in Alexandria Township, New Jersey began in 1986 with the care of two orphaned raccoons. The mission of Woodlands Wildlife Refuge is the care and release of orphaned and injured native wildlife back to their natural habitat. We also provide educational programs about the habits and habitats of our local wildlife.

Woodlands Wildlife Refuge cares for over 1,700 wild patients annually. As our communities continue to grow, and loss of habitat continues, the number of human/wildlife encounters increase. We are dedicated to keeping up with the needs of our communities and our wild neighbors. Woodlands enjoys a high success rate of release. Woodlands provides care to a multitude of species including but not limited to: raccoons, skunks, opossums, rabbits, woodchucks, foxes, squirrels, coyotes, bats, otters, porcupines, bears, venomous snakes, and even the occasional bobcat.

Woodlands has a highly trained team of staff and volunteers that care for the animals until their release. The doctors and staff at the Animal Hospital of Clinton-Perryville , Voorhees Corner Veterinary Clinic, Oradell Animal Hospital, and West Hunterdon Animal Hospital generously treat animals needing more extensive care such as X-rays, fracture repair or surgery.

Woodlands is a New Jersey state licensed wildlife rehabilitation facility and is a 501(C)(3) charitable corporation. Woodlands receives no state or federal funding.
