Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc. Update:
Completed my end of the year reports for Dept. of Fish & Game:
*Nine total whitetail fawns successful rescue, rehab and soft released. One yearling. *One elk successful rescue, rehab and release. *Seven rescued fawns either naturally deceased or euthanized due to vehicle impacts, dog maulings or poor health (heart defect, failure to thrive or birth defects).

MYSTIC FARM WILDLIFE RESCUE, INC.: Some photos are just worth sharing… Went hiking up the mountain today to scout out a Christmas tree. Before long, I had a “posse” of a few fawns, one wild turkey, and two dogs. When I sat down on a rock ridge to take a break, this is what came up behind me…Damn I love my life!
Greetings from Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc. With the holday season in full swing, I hope this finds everyone healthy and full of good cheer! All is well at Mystic Farm. The fawns are on their own. Though they do come back for an occasional check in, I see less and less of them each week…and fewer of the original group! A few of them have joined up with a couple of the established herds in the area. I’m happy to report that all are fat and healthy. Success is sweet Each year at Mystic Farm, an area of the rescue is identified as being in need and promoted for the holiday fundraiser. After “running the numbers”, I have seen that there is great need for additional funds to be put towards veterinarian care and supplies (this spring birthing season alone I spent well over $1000 towards medical care and supplies). Unfortunately, many of the little ones that arrive at Mystic Farm are in need of medical attention: casts, splints, dressings, antibiotics, special diet, topical ointments – and in some cases, surgical intervention or euthanization. I have found many area veterinarians and techs to be awesome in contributing as much as possible, but they have expenses, too. As I have said before, as rewarding as it is, wildlife rescue doesn’t come cheap! You may want to consider contributing in someone’s name. This is a great opportunity to gift a child, for example, the sponsorship (and teach stewardship) of our wonderful wildlife. Please read the attached flyer and feel free to pass it along to anyone on your email list. Thank you so much for your continued support. I couldn’t do any of this without you! Merry Christmas to each of you. Dory Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc. Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, 501 (c) 3. All cash contributions are tax deductible.
Greetings from Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc. Last night’s candle party/fundraiser was a great success! Thanks to everyone attending and picking up some awesome candles and other handmade goodies to kick off the holiday shopping season! If you’re interested in hosting a party, contact Dory and you’ll be put in touch with the “people in the know” All of the fawns are now in soft release. It’s great to see them out running around, becoming more and more independent every day. Three of the smaller (and last to be released) usually come back for a visit at dusk. As for most of the others, I never know when/if they’ll be passing thru. They all look good and healthy! It was a big year of many tragic beginnings and tearful losses. But, the sweet success of all those little guys that are now out on their own warms my heart and makes it all worth it. Check out the attachment re. new holiday candle scents and the addition of Mystic Farm logo coffee mugs with a bag of Evans Brothers fabulous coffee beans. Both of these would make great Christmas gifts for friends, family and co-workers…and support the rescue at the same time! Thanks for all the support to keep the rescue going. Couldn’t do it without all of you! Dory Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc.

MYSTIC FARM WILDLIFE RESCUE, INC. UPDATE: The last of the fawns was sent out on his own today – his splint is removed after breaking his leg late in the season when he caught it in a fence . He’s doing great. He just needs to get used to not having an extra contraption strapped onto his leg! “Friends of Mystic Farm” are starting to organize the fundraiser candle parties. Great handmade items just in time for the holidays. Candle, sachets, chocolate moose, “moose aromas”, soap…all handmade! And the best part? All proceeds go to support Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc! If you would like to book a party (or just attend), email me and I’ll help you set one up or connect you to the right people. Just in time for hunting season… Maybe it’s my warped sense of humour, but I found the attached photo a crack up!
Have a fun and spooky Halloween…watch out for kids, deer, elk and moose on the road. ‘Tis that time of year Dory Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc. www.mystic-farm.com

Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc. Update: The following letter ran in the Sunday Bonner County Daily Bee.
Saturday, Sept. 17, was the date of an amazing and humbling experience. Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc. held the “First Annual Mystic Farm Benefit Banquet and Auction” at Stillwater Ranch in Sagle. Wow. Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover how grateful we are to all who attended, donated items and services to the raffles and auction, and volunteered at the event. Mystic Farm is a 501 (C) 3 non-profit serving the stewardship of Idaho’s wildlife through rescue, rehabilitation, and release back into the wild of orphaned, injured and abandoned ungulates: moose, deer, and elk. This service is available 100 percent through donations and volunteer time. Without all of you, none of this would be possible. We are beyond blessed to live in such a generous and caring community. Watch for next year’s bigger and better banquet! With sincere thanks, DORY McISAAC Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc.

The 1st Annual Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue Banquet and Auction was a great success!Thank you so much to all who attended, bid on items, volunteered time, and donated to the auction and raffles. Feedback continues to come in and I’m pleased to say that it’s unanimously positive! We had a great turnout and everything – well, most everything – went off without a hitch! Each year Mystic Farm continues to advance its mission to “rescue, rehab and release back into the wild” our precious natural resource, Idaho’s wildlife. The proceeds from the banquet will be used not only for general operation of the rescue, but will enable us to expand the enclosures to give the fawns/calves additional space and more of a natural habitat before soft release back into the wild.
Speaking of soft release… This year’s “herd” of fawns continue to grow and thrive. The six little bucks and two does will soon be out there, on their own, contributing to future populations.

On September 1st Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue was interviewed on 1400 AM Talk “Blue Sky Broadcasting.”
All is going well with the “herd”. Flutterby has her cast/splint off and is loving her freedom in the pen with the twins. It won’t be too long before they can either join back up with the others or, possibly, be soft released right from their area up by the barn. I want to give the twins a bit more growth and make certain Flutterby’s leg is fully healed.
As for the others, they are close to “soft release date”. Mid to late September the gates will be opened and they will be encouraged to strike out on their own. All are doing well on the “red cap” feeding plan after the weird experience this year with hair loss from the usual replacement formula. The few that were affected are fat and healthy…just need to grow that hair back!
The banquet (Stillwater Ranch on September 17th) planning is moving right along at full speed. If you need tickets, PLEASE contact me (208 241-7081) or Jan (208 610 6669) or pick them up at Big R sporting good dept. in Sandpoint or Wholesale Sports in CdA as soon as possible. We need to order/purchase the food from Texas Roadhouse this coming Tuesday, so need the head count as close as possible. We don’t want to be short on food! Donated and purchased items for the auction/raffles are still coming in. In addition to some of the items mentioned in the last update (antler chandelier, original and print paintings, a pie a month for a year, one deer processing cut and wrap, handmade doe skin rife scabbards, MANY dinners at local restaurants, antler wine racks, etc.), we have now added a weekend ski/hotel pkg. in North Idaho, an absolutely amazing mesquite burl end table with turquoise inlay, a Remington Model 870 Express pump shotgun, a Ruger 10/22 Jacaranda Laminate rifle, a beautiful antler lamp, a smoker…and so much more! If you have offered donations and haven’t connected with us to pick them up, please contact Dory or Jan. The banquet should be “moose buckets full of fun”! Please lend your support and join us for a good time, good food, great door/raffle/auction items, and a chance to show your support for the wildlife rescue. Remember, we couldn’t do this without you! BTW: The Country Inn in Sagle is offering a deal for anyone coming to the area for the banquet: stay at the hotel for their already low price, and they will donate $20 a night back to Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc.
The attachments are of a recent photo of part of the “herd” drinking their bottles from the bottle rack, and about an eight minute recording of Dory and Janette on “1400 AM Talk” Blue Sky Broadcasting interview about the rescue and the upcoming banquet. Just a heads up…if you have dial up, the interview attachment may be a bit long. I’m scheduled to do another radio interview on Thursday (Sept. 8th) at 9:30 AM on “K102″ FM morning show out of Spokane. Make sure to tune in!
Again, thanks for all of your support, produce and cash/item donations! We are all in this together…”Saving Idaho Wildlife – One Orphan at a Time”.
