I received this message from Katy (a Mystic Farm supporter) today re. a lactating doe killed near the Careywood Fire Station. Another lactating doe was killed near Fry Creek Animal Clinic. This doe’s fawn has been seen hanging out on the shoulder next to the busy highway! Keep your eyes open for these two vulnerable fawns. They are probably getting extremely dehydrated and thin by now. Please call if you think you see them.
Six orphans now residing at Mystic Farm. They are consuming 4 -5 gallons of food a day…they must be healthy! In addition, there have been too many calls to count advising people how to “leave the fawn/put the fawn back” – the mom is probably in the area!” Many happy endings :-)

Ramona the intern is settling in nicely in the little cabin. A bit more stain and clean up, and that project can be checked off the list. Thank you to everyone that contributed items and to making this possible.

A big thank you to the small group of volunteers that helped me put up the expanded fawn area. It now extends well into a wooded and shaded area with many places to hide! The first few of the fawns will be moved down in the next couple of days. All will be moved down when each fawn masters the bottle rack and no longer depends on my holding the bottle.

All is good :-) Thanks for your continued support.


Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. With that, comes the birth of many area fawns. Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue wants you to remember, if you find what you think may be an orphaned and/or injured baby – DO NOT TOUCH! Most often, the mother is nearby and a rescue is not necessary. If you feel the fawn truly is an orphan or injured, please call Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue (208 241-7081) or your local Idaho Department of Fish & Game officer immediately. The situation will be assessed as to whether or not a rescue is warranted.

  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). Over all, not a bad year.   *Photo taken yesterday of “The Five” group of fawns back for a little snack :-)   Dory Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Inc.

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.

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. Sagle

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.
