WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT TAKING FAWNS due to LOCAL OUTBREAKS of Chronic Wasting Disease. 99% of the calls we get about fawns are cases where the fawn does not need help. For further help with fawns, contact the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources at 804-367-2679 or visit our Fawn FAQ page.

If you have a wildlife emergency, please call us at 540-798-9836. If you get our voice mail, please leave your name, number(s), location, and brief description of your situation so we can call you back. If it is after hours and we are closed, or have a high volume of calls and can’t get to you right away, there is some basic information and advice under the “Get Involved/Rescuing Animals” page for information on common scenarios until we can get back to you.

When bringing us a patient, we ask that everyone secure it in a ventilated box and to please drive 10 mph on the gravel driveway once the pavement ends.

Due to a high volume of calls we cannot always respond immediately, but we will do our very best to get back to you as soon as possible as long as a voicemail is left (please make sure your voicemail is set up and not full so we can leave you a return message if you don’t pick up).
