When Leondra Scherer encountered an injured fawn around 2013, it became apparent that Western New York needed a cohesive organization for the rehabilitation of large mammals.
Fuzzy Fawn takes in around one hundred deer per year and answers around 400 phone calls! That's 400 individual animals that were either connected to treatment or assessed and safely left in their environment.
We can only be in so many places at once, so we would be nothing without the network of people across Western New York willing to help transport wildlife. Fuzzy Fawn is always looking for new volunteers.
Your continued support and contributions enable us to see these animals through from arrival to release
Nature can be surprising and not every animal needs help when you think they do. If you have concerns about a baby deer, click the button below to see if this behavior is normal before doing anything. Otherwise, call (716) 909-8536 for wildlife in Erie and Niagara County.
