Yesterday, we came home with nine sad, scared foxes. The trust that they began to show me - as soon as we got home - was incredible. Many times, these animals 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 when you’re a good guy who’s helping them. The people “housing” these foxes when they left the fur farm did not have the correct license to legally own them. Special thank you to @saveafox_rescue
for heading this rescue mission!
I know a lot of you love the small-scale rescue work that I do, and often ask how you can help me. Right now, the most helpful thing you can do is 1) make a monetary contribution (any amount is appreciated) or 2) purchase a bag of high-quality dry dog food from our Amazon wish list. The foxes have dry food available at all times, in addition to the other variety of fresh foods they receive.
We put almost $600 into making one of our new enclosures fox-proof, and then putting up an entire second enclosure (thank you to those who donated materials to help minimize our costs!). We have a vet who is graciously seeing all of the foxes at once this weekend, and we will be getting every fox vaccinated, tending to the foxes’ injuries, and getting the males neutered. We’re anticipating our vet bill to be at least $400 (and that’s based upon a discounted rate). We’re ordering one month’s supply of parasiticides for all of them, which in itself costs almost $200.
Our goal is to raise at least $1,000, to at minimum help recoup SOME of these initial expenses. The more money I can put back into our rescue fund, the more likely I am to be able to assist in future rescue scenarios. ❤️
Keep your eyes open for more details to come about these new additions. Our journey with them has just begun!
