– Assistant –
My name is Jenny Patton, and I am Mikayla’s second assistant. I live in Michigan with 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 Toddler and a fox! I have always had a love of all animals my whole life. I grew up with horse’s, bunnies, cats, and dogs. But I always had a deep love for foxes. When national geographic did the story on the Russian Silver Fox Domestication, I knew I was hooked on the dream of one day having a fox as a pet. It wasn’t until a couple years ago I discovered Mikayla and Save a Fox Rescue, with that I realized that Fur Farms were a totally legal business here in the United States, and that I could help rescue a little kit from a life of torture and suffering.
After many months of research, reading, asking questions we felt that we were ready for the crazy life of being a “Fox Parent.” Last winter my boyfriend and I applied for a kit, we got the good news that we passed, once we had our DNR permit ready to go, we drove out to Minnesota and picked up Axel May of 2017. He was 5 weeks old, and honestly it was the first time I had ever touched a fox that little. I was a so nervous and excited, here was this beautiful little kit, who now depending entirely on us and we couldn’t let him down. He’s grown into a beautiful young fox, and we love him to death.
My job here at the rescue is to help Mikayla with all the emails that come in to the rescue. I am the first step of the application process, I also answer all the fox questions that come in through our email. So, if you email us chances are I’ll be answering and I am so happy to be able to help even all the way from Michigan.
