We help wild animals and the people who care about them

Harmony Wildlife's mission is to care for Tennessee’s orphaned and injured wildlife. We provide a temporary place for animals to mature or recover with the goal of release into their natural habitats. We believe that helping humans understand and peacefully coexist with native wildlife makes the world a better place for everyone.

No rehabs can take fawns

Tennessee changed its policy on white-tailed deer rehabilitation. No wildlife rehabber is allowed to care for deer of any age. You can read TWRA's statement here. If you find a fawn, please leave it alone. We sincerely hope conditions change so this position can be reversed.

Did you find an animal that needs help?  Call or text us at (615) 266-5701.

We return calls, texts, and emails as quickly as we can, but don’t wait! Find a licensed rehabber by visiting the TWRA website or Animal Help Now.

A Happy (Release) Day for Mr. Crow

After two months of supportive care at Harmony, this beautiful American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) was released where he was found in Leiper's Fork. 

Our team was sad to say goodbye to Mr. Crow, but ecstatic that he can return to his home and have a chance to reunite with his family. Crow families often include several generations; younger birds help their parents raise new baby crows. Oh hey, check out this article about crow family units penned by our dear friend Professor Andrea Townsend of Hamilton College in upstate New York.

You can see more release photos here.

Baby birds are here.

If you find a baby bird, refer to these instructionsIn many cases, you've probably found a fledgling. Fledglings can not fly well yet but will jump to the ground when they are ready to leave. The birds will not remain in the nest or on a branch. Parents continue to feed the youngsters on the ground until the babies learn to find their own food. Learn more about baby birds.

Thank you, CFMT!

Did You Know?

 It’s against Tennessee State Law to keep wild animals, even if you plan to release them. This includes squirrels, skunks, and raccoons, too. You are allowed to transport injured or orphaned animals to a licensed rehab.
