Meet our newest additions this little guy came in at 6 lbs. We have had 8 fawns come through our doors this season. Along with a mallard a wood duck and a gosling.

Guilderhaven is creating a Fawn Fund to assist with the cost of rehabilitating fawns to be released back to the wild.  Don’t be a Fawn Napper. Fawn season is upon us please follow DEC recommendations, but when in doubt call your local wildlife rehabilitator to help determine if the fawn is truly in need of rescue. 
Due to our mild winter we have seen an earlier start to all our wild baby seasons especially deer. We have seen an increase in Orphaned, injured and debilitated fawns. They are one of the costlier and lengthiest to rehabilitate. Rescue, rehabilitation to release takes months which means lots of specialized care. Vet visits, medications and specialized food. We have a network of wildlife rehabilitators but only a handful equipped to handle deer. Guilderhaven has a resident wildlife rehabilitator on its Board, she is happy to answer any wildlife questions you may have or assist with wildlife emergencies. You can contact Jean Simmons at (518) 456-4374. 
Guilderhaven’s Fawn Fund will assist Wildlife Rehabilitators with the cost of rehabilitating these fawns to be returned to the wild. For more information contact Sue Green at (518) 861-6861 if you would like to help you can mail your Tax deductible donation to: Guilderhaven Inc. At 6655 Route 158, Altamont, NY 12009. Please include Fawn Fund in the Memo
