FourWands Wildlife

FourWands Wildlife Rehabilitation is a Vermont licensed rehabilitator located in Barre, VT.  We take in most small, non-rabies vector, mammals with the goal of returning to them to the wild as soon as they are able.  While we take in whatever we are permitted to, we specialize in the five squirrel species native to Vermont.  We have successfully raised and released hundreds of orphaned and injured squirrels as well as snowshoe hares, weasels, porcupines and opossums ranging from hours-old babies to adults with severe head trauma or life-threatening illness such as Squirrel Fibroma Virus aka “squirrelpox”.
FourWands Wildlife Rehabilitation is a member of the National Wildlife Rehabilitator’s Association.

Yesterday wasn't the easiest day for me but I did manage to get Gary and Jackie back out and into the trees that they were born in.
Both were slow coming out of their pre-release cage but the video is of Gary late yesterday afternoon.
Safe travels, Guys! ❤️
I will post a pic of Jackie later today. ❤️

It is with a tremendously broken heart that I share the passing of Jefferson with you.
This beautiful boy suffered such incredibly bad luck being attacked by a cat and developing Squirrel Fibroma Virus in his short life. I so wanted him to win this fight and return to the wild.
I felt a special kinship to this guy. I'm crushed. 💔
Climb the tallest tree, Jefferson. You're free from injury and infection now. I will see you at the Bridge, brave boy. Godspeed. 🌈

Storms are expected today and possibly tomorrow but if the forecast holds, Jackie (pictured) and Gary (camera shy as always) will go free on Saturday.

Keep fighting, Jefferson. #FightLikeASquirrel, Buddy!
No real update. We should know in the next week where this is going. He's still growling and trying to bite me so I'll take that as a positive.
