             Welcome to the Wild Side of Rescue ! 


The Last Resort Wildlife Refuge is a NJ state licensed wildlife rehabilitation facility and nature preserve in West Milford NJ. Our rescue facility sits on almost 80 acres of preserved and protected forest, an ideal environment for all the stages of rehabilitation in a supportive natural environment. We rescue and rehabilitate orphaned and injured wildlife, provide medical attention, veterinary care, neonatal care and often round the clock nursing care to our more ccritical patients. Our dedicated team strives to meet all of their needs through every stage of rehabilitation and provides daily enrichment to equip all of our wild patients with the skills and tools needed to be successfully released or reintroduced back into their native environment. In rare cases, to provide sanctuary for those few, who, for one reason or another, cannot be released. We are a NJ 501c3 Non Profit Organization and we receive no state or federal funding. We rely on donations and community support to continue saving lives continue educational programs within the community.  We provide a 24 hour wildlife hotline for wildlife emergencies throughout NJ.  The property is slowly being restored, rebuilt and not currently open to the public. However we provide a 24 hour wildlife emergency hotline to the public. We are also in the process of building a full service wildlife hospital on site. 

The Last Resort Rescue and Wildlife Refuge was founded by and is directed by Nancy Warner, a 30 yr veterinary nurse and NJ licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator. The Last Resort Rescue’s amazing team also rescues, rehabs and rehomes orphaned, abandoned, injured, and homeless dogs, cats, horses, pigs and even exotic pets through a network of private foster homes. We have rescued, rehabbed and rehomed over 8700 beautiful souls through our adoption program into screened, approved forever homes.

We need volunteers!  We need your support! It takes a village! 

We want to create a better future for ALL animals!
