White-tailed Deer Fawns of 2017

The Center is currently caring for four White-tailed Deer fawns. Though dozens of fawns have been admitted in 2017, a number of healthy fawns were transferred to other permitted rehabilitators with available space for fawns at their facilities. When possible and appropriate, healthy baby animals are transferred to other rehabilitators, freeing up space and time at the Center for animals that require specialized medical care.

Currently, the four fawns are healthy and are bottle-fed twice daily. In addition to formula, the fawns are offered deer chow, select fruit, and browse. The staff and students will continue to offer formula during the next several weeks before weaning the fawns and transitioning them to a diet of only fruit and browse.
