New Life and Wildlife at Three Pillars

25 Must-See Photos | A Gallery of 2021's Baby Animals and Critters

June 26, 2021

Love baby animals and Wisconsin wildlife of all kinds? Our residents and employees do, too!

Baby whitetail deer fawns at Three Pillars in Dousman
When these two Whitetail deer cuties' mother decided Three Pillars was a good place to spend their first few days of life, we were swooning.

Our 295-acre campus is nestled in a park-like, wooded setting in Dousman, Wisconsin, with the Bark River running through the heart of it. Much to our delight, this means that in addition to providing the best quality of care for older adults in our area, we're also quite a haven for a diverse variety of critters, too. Lucky for us, we have several artistic resident photographers who document and share the beauty with us.

This gallery is brought to you by the very talented Virgil D, who is rarely seen without his camera at his side and has a knack for capturing incredible wildilfe moments. Thank you, Virgil!
