Fawn Enclosure

Each year we rehabilitate several deer fawns that have been orphaned when their mother is killed by a car or dogs, or the fawn itself is injured. They are usually with us for six months and at each stage of their care, from tiny spotted week-old fawns to strong young deer, they need the appropriate type of housing. Our existing fawn pen and deer enclosure were some of the first enclosures to be built after Wolf Hollow moved to its current site in 1987. They were beginning to show their age, and needed extensive repair, so we decided instead to build a new facility for fawn rehabilitation.  In 2013 we received a grant from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to replace damaged posts and install secure footings and screening to minimize fawn’s exposure to human activities.
