Walden’s Puddle provides care and treatment to sick, injured and orphaned native Tennessee wildlife. We are the only professionally-staffed wildlife rehabilitation and education facility in Middle Tennessee. We do not charge for services and receive no federal or state funding at this time. We are here to help you help wildlife in trouble. If you suspect an animal is orphaned, please observe to make sure its mother is not nearby.

PLEASE HELP BY DONATING TODAY!

If you wish to send us donations, or have others send donations to us, in Memory of someone or in Honor of someone, all you have to do is select one of the many options on our Donate page. You can also contribute through our many partners, who designate a certain portion of funds to help Walden’s Puddle help so many injured or abandoned animals. 92% of all donations go directly to the animals.
