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.

If you are seeking help with an orphaned or injured animal within the state of Vermont, please give us a call at 802.461.4381

I have added an update in the GofundMe story but, just to shorten it here, VT Fish and Wildlife has stated they will revoke my license (which gives them the opportunity to seize Peanut) on March 15th if I do not respond with a request for a hearing or a settlement. My attorney has responded on my behalf.

I do not wish to use funds that are donated to my non-profit organization FourWands Wildlife Rehabilitation to cover legal fees as I have always stated that ALL donations go to the care of the animals so I have started a separate GoFundMe to cover what may be significant legal expenses. I don't get paid for what I do. It's entirely volunteer work even though it is a VERY full-time job.
If you are able to donate and/or share, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, #SavePeanut

I really don't like making videos like this. I like to stay in the background and let my critters be the star of the show but I need your help. We need less than 500 signatures to get to 10K supporters. Tomorrow, Governor Phil Scott has his bi-weekly press conference and it's time someone asked him if he's going to #SavePeanut. VT Fish and Wildlife Leadership want this story to go away. Chief Warden: Col. Jason Batchelder actually suggested RELEASING A MIDDLE-AGED BLIND SQUIRREL INTO THE WILD. This is a squirrel that has never spent a moment of her life in a tree. That is INHUMANE.
Don't let this story go away. We NEED Governor Phil Scott to stop VT Fish & Wildlife from seizing Peanut and killing her. They are doing it to intimidate licensed wildlife rehabilitators. Peanut's life is worth more than that. I am so grateful for your support. We are nearly at 10,000 signatures. PLEASE keep sharing!! YOU make a BIG difference here!

VT Fish and Wildlife says they won't take Peanut... then immediately after saying that they say they don't know what the law is and they will take the law into consideration if they will honor any arrangements that were made. In other words, we still need to #SavePeanut

The architect, Karen the Red Squirrel, has removed sections of two walls to create a unique arched doorway allowing airflow and light while still retaining a cozy feel. Truly remarkable! #KarenTheArchitect
