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

Don't be alarmed! Absolutely nothing is wrong with Marvelous Marvina - she's just VERY prone to "milk trancrs/feeding seizures/guppy mouth". @geobeatsanimals did a wonderful clip about this behavior a few months ago. We don't know what causes them but they are relatively common in baby squirrels. They eventually snap out of them and go back to nursing normally.
I promise you, she's not aspirating or choking. She's just excited. ❤️

I will introduce these three individually in the next couple of days but meet Barry, Maurice and Robin!
This trio (2 boys and a girl) arrived yesterday from Wilder, VT after being displaced from their nest and a failed attempt to reunite them with mom. They are in very good health.
Marvina will be joining them as soon as they are through a brief quarantine period.

This is BJ. Named by his finders, BJ arrived this afternoon from White River Junction (along with three unrelated others I will post about tomorrow). BJ suffered a fall and isn't feeling the best tonight. He has some blood in his sinuses and is having a little trouble breathing. He's been given an antibiotic, something for pain/swelling and is receiving nebulizer treatment.
He would love some well wishes, prayers and good vibes if you have some to spare.
