Tennessee Licensed Animal Rehabilitators

Discover the Right Help for Injured Wildlife 

Have you found an injured or orphaned animal in need of help? The best course of action is often to leave it right where you found it. Many young animals that may appear orphaned are just waiting for the mother to return.

However, if the animal is badly injured or the mother has not returned after 48 hours, you can reach out to a licensed Tennessee Wildlife Rehabilitator for help. Remember, it is illegal for unlicensed individuals to offer veterinary care or posses wildlife, as it can be harmful to the animal and people in the household.

In Tennessee, wildlife rehabilitators specialize in specific types of wildlife. To find the right organization to help you, start by identifying the animal you found, and then use the information below to find the right rehabilitator.

Note: Wildlife Rehabilitators do not pick animals up. If you find an animal and a rehabilitator can accept the animal, you will need to arrange transportation to deliver the animal to the Wildlife Rehabilitator. 

 In Tennessee, the armadillo is classified as a Class V animal.   Class V animals are injurious to the environment. 

Only Zoos may possess these animals.  No rehabilitation, relocation, or release is allowed. 

Bats are not authorized for rehabilitation. 

Bats are rabies vector species.  TWRA does not have regulatory authority over any wildlife that could be infected with rabies.

If the bat has had any contact with a person or domestic animal, you must call your local health dept to report the incident.

STATEWIDE FAWN REHABILITATION:  Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) has been detected in TN.  The movement of deer is not allowed.  If you have found a fawn, you must return the fawn to the place where it was found. 

It is a violation of state law to transport and/or relocate deer in TN.

This restriction is an effort to minimize the spread of diseases through human-aided movements and to keep white-tailed deer wild. Part of fawn rehabilitation includes the movement of the animals over potentially large distances to reach rehabilitation facilities. Fawns might also be transported long distances again when being released back into the wild.

These human-aided movements of live animals pose a risk of spread of diseases across the state, including chronic wasting disease (CWD). Chronic wasting disease has been detected in 16 counties in western TN, and TWRA is dedicated to reducing the spread of CWD into new areas. Fawn rehabilitation, although well-intended, can be detrimental to fawn survival once released back into the wild. Rehabilitated fawns show changes in behavior that make them more vulnerable to predators and more habituated to humans.

The resulting low survival rates suggest rehabilitation is not an effective tool for enhancing white-tailed deer populations and the greatest chance of survival in the wild is without human intervention. CHANGES TO STATEWIDE FAWN REHABILITATION It is best to leave fawns alone.

Most likely, the fawn is not actually abandoned but practicing normal white-tailed deer behavior. Female deer hide fawns in covers such as tall grass or brush (even in your yard) to avoid predators while the female deer continues to forage. Keeping herself some distance away from her fawns prevents her scent from attracting predators to the fawns.

Newborn fawns have less odor than mature deer and have spotted fur, both of which help them hide from predators. It is best to leave the fawn where you found it as the doe will return to nurse the fawn when it is safe. If you have picked up the fawn, please return it to the location it was found.
