We have 5 orphaned fawns in our care. They began arriving on 5/20 and the most recent one came to our center on 5/28. It is possible that more may still arrive this season. Our capacity is 10, but we hope that we won't get that many orphaned fawns.
We shared a couple of their stories over the weekend on our FaceBook page. One was rescued by Lake Stevens Police Department after its mother was killed. Two were transferred to us by other area rehab centers, one was found abandoned in a driveway, and another was rescued over the past weekend found laying in the road. That one was discovered by a Seattle Homicide detective - so, our first responders were directly involved in helping two of these babies. Thank you!!
Thank you to everyone who helped these little fragile fawns and got them safely to us over the past week. They will be trained to take the bottle, and then will graduate to a bottle rack and have little to no contact with us. We need them to continue to be wary of humans and eventually live a wild life once again.
