Four Wands 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 is 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 over 100 hundred orphaned and injured squirrels as well as snowshoe hares, weasels, porcupines and opossums ranging from hours-old babies to adults with severe head trauma.

If you are seeking help with an orphaned or injured animal, please give us a call at 802.461.4381  If you are seeking help with a fox, raccoon, skunk, bat or groundhog/woodchuck, please call the rabies hotline at 1-800-4-RABIES and they can assist you in locating a rehabilitator who may be able to help.

We were recently hacked – please forgive us while we try to get our site back up and running during the busiest time of the year!!

Mrs Suzy's recovery continues!
She was unable to eat much for her first two days here but today her appetite returned! She can't use her front paws yet (common with head trauma) but she will happily eat a soft "yogurt ball" when it's given to her. The swelling in her face is going down too! Hopefully she will get a little mobility in the very near future.
One step at a time will bring her back to the trees in the Spring. ❤️

Meet Isaac! (Named for his love of apples! You can call him Sir Newton if you like!)
Isaac is suffering from some kind of neurological issue and is rather wobbly on his feet. He has been unable to feed himself so he came in skinny and HANGRY! (Hence the grumpy look!) I am still evaluating him but he is getting rehydrated and had some much needed calories tonight.

Updated 10/15: I am heartbroken to share that Isaac has passed. Sometimes, I think my role is to simply give them a warm, safe place to transition to wherever it is we go. He was in very critical condition last night and chose not to share the video I had taken of him so as not to upset anyone. I do not know if he suffered a head and spinal injury or if his problem was deeper seated than that. It matters not now. Isaac is at peace. 💔 😢
