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.

PSA: The fawns are all right

It's baby season for white-tailed deer and you may soon come across a fawn on its own. It’s almost assured the fawn is not abandoned or in need of help. The baby is doing what comes naturally: staying quiet and hidden. While mom is foraging and refueling, she hides the baby in natural cover such as tall grass or brush. Sometimes, babies "hide" in areas we may not think are best but mom knows what she’s doing. Leave the fawn where you found it. The doe will return, sometimes hours later. Do not linger or invite people to look. If you have picked up the fawn, return it to the location you found it and leave the area so mom feels safe returning.
