What do I do if I see a fawn that appears to be sick, injured or orphaned?
- It is NOT unusual for a fawn to be left for several hours. Mother’s will often leave their fawns while grazing for food.
If you are concerned the fawn has been orphaned please observe it from a distance for at least 4 HOURS before contacting
Kindred Spirits Fawn Rescue.
- If the fawn is clearly INJURED or SICK please CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY! Our service is available at NO CHARGE 24 HOURS a day,
7 DAYS a week. (530) 889-5822
Keep It Warm and Safe:
Should you find this animal on the side of the road or a trail, the most important thing you can do for
the fawn is secure it in a safe, dark environment. A dog crate or a large box will work as a temporary home. Make sure
the fawn is kept warm with a hot water bottle or sock filled with rice which has been micro waved for 3 minutes then wrapped
in a towel. Cover the fawn with a towel or blanket then place the hot water bottle/rice sock next to the fawn. Make sure
the fawn is away from human noise and domestic pets.
- Do NOT give any food, water or medicine to the fawn. The wrong food or medicine can do more harm than good.
- DO NOT care for a sick, injured, or orphaned fawn yourself?
Rehabilitating fawns is illegal for members of the public. Kindred Spirits is licensed to care for fawns through the California Department of Fish & Game.
