what we do
Each year Holly’s Nest takes in over 100 fawns that have been either abandoned or orphaned. The fawns will initially stay in the nursery which is 40′ x 20′ x 12′ and has four compartments. After spending time in the nursery and acclimating to their new surroundings, they will be moved into a 91′ x 15′ x 10′ enclosure until their release.
Rabies Vector Species
Included in the rabies vector species are raccoons, foxes, bats, and skunks, along with many others. Holly’s Nest maintains enclosures to safely house each of the animals within the RVS.
Holly’s Nest takes in many small mammals, including bunnies, opossums, squirrels, beavers, groundhogs, and many more. Each species has specifically designed stand-alone enclosures designed to fit their specific rehabilitation needs.
Raptors, Songbirds, and Water Fowl
In 2020, Holly’s Nest received our Raptor permit. With this, we can take in owls, eagles, hawks and other raptors. We also take in various songbirds and water fowl.
