From Fur Farms
We prepare for fox pups by having all supplies such as formula, feeding syringes, nipples, and blankets. When rescuing foxes over 7 weeks old, we need large spaces and vet appointments ready.
We rescue foxes from many different situations. We rescue sick, injured, and orphaned foxes from furfarms. Ones that the farmers believe would not make it. We take in surrendered foxes that were once pets and originally came from breeders. And we take in, and rescue found pet foxes.
The foxes we rescue need love to thrive. Without love they grow up to be wild and unhandlable. They require lots of attention to stay social with people.
Our goal is to adopt all the foxes out we rescue. The ones who don’t get adopted we try to find sponsors for. Some foxes I rescue tend to be more wild by nature; those are the foxes I would choose not to adopt out.
A lot of work goes into caring for our foxes. We feed the adult foxes a grain free diet every morning with the addition of raw meat and their favorite fruits and vegetables each evening. We take the foxes out of the cages for playtime each day in our a half acre fenced in area. Sometimes you can catch us during play time on our live videos (Mikayla Raines on Periscope.) Not to mention how busy the baby foxes keep us! With bottle feeding every three hours, and lots of need for socializing they keep us on our toes.
We are constantly upgrading for the foxes. No toy is fox proof so we go through a lot of those! Toys are important to keep the foxes busy so they don’t get bored. With more donations, we hope to upgrade the fox enclosures to give them more space when it is not playing time. With donations coming in leading to upgrades, we eventually will be able to open up to the public.
