Wolfe is now watching the fawns

New director for Wildlife Fawn Rescue



Longtime Kenwood resident and parent Matt Wolfe will be taking over management of Wildlife Fawn Rescue from Marjorie Davis as of December, a welcome relief for the nonagenarian founder of the Kenwood-based rescue organization.

“Fawn Rescue is proud to welcome Matt to our team,” Davis said. “Matt is full of enthusiasm and knowledge, with special skills and experience. He will carry us in the right direction and far into the future.”

Wolfe has lived in Kenwood for the past 20 years, raising two boys who went to Kenwood Elementary. He has coached Wine Country Youth Baseball for the past five years.

“I have always enjoyed hiking around the local parks in my free time,” Wolfe said. “One thing I have always loved about Kenwood is the wide variety of wildlife.”

Matt obtained an Associate of Science Degree and Pharmacy technician certificate from SRJC.

“While the technician program was interesting to me, it clearly was not a good career path,” Wolfe recalled. “So when I found out the Fawn Rescue coordinator position was available I thought it could be a perfect fit, as it combines my love for the outdoors and wildlife. I was amazed to find that the founder of Fawn Rescue is also from the area.”

The job is a formidable one, too. Fawn Rescue deals with up to 100 wild animals every year, rescuing abandoned, trapped and injured fawns at any time of the day or night, rain or shine.

Fawn Rescue needs property owners of private, rural land to help raise these deer and release four fawns every season (from April to October), Davis said.

“We’re also seeking drivers to respond to rescue calls,” she added. Drivers can choose which days and areas they work.

“I consider myself lucky to be part of this great organization and look forward to a great future with the Fawn Rescue,” Wolfe said.

If you are interested in helping Fawn Rescue in any way, please contact Matt at 931-4550. Visit the web site at www.fawnrescue.org for more information.
