Each year Holly’s Nest takes in 60-100 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 among other animals. Holly’s Nest maintains enclosures to house each of the animals within the RVS.
Small Mammal Species
Here at Holly’s Nest we take in many small mammals that most in the community are familiar with, those animals include but are not limited to bunnies, opossum, squirrels, beavers, and groundhogs. Each species has specifically designed stand alone enclosures designed to house the animals to fit their needs for rehabilitation. Jimi, the beaver, lives in a 17′ solid in ground pool surrounded by pasture fencing.
Raptors, Songbirds, and Water Fowl
A new addition in 2020 to the Holly’s Nest lineup was the addition of the Raptor permit. Having a permit for Raptors has allowed us to take in owls, eagles, hawks and other raptors. In addition to the raptors we’ll be taking in various songbirds and water fowel. Keep up with us here and see the exciting new birds that we take in.
