the fox hospital

+ natural sanctuary

please donate to help

I am raising funds to build the UK's first fox specific dedicated hospital and natural sanctuary for injured and permanently disabled foxes. 

I have been doing this for a number of years but The Fox Hospital + natural outdoor sanctuary is a vitally and urgently needed facility that will be registered with the RCVS (Royal College for Veterinary Surgeons - the same body that vets and vet nurses do their training and veterinary practices register with.  It will be the UK's first fox specific dedicated facility and natural sanctuary specifically for sick, injured, physically or mentally disabled wild foxes needing basic or intensive care, physio or long term treatment, wound or condition care with facilities that make it the only of its kind and size in the whole country dedicated exclusively to foxes.

 

Currently all main wildlife charities and organisations who take in and treat foxes are unfortunately confirmed full and unable to take in any further foxes for the foreseeable future, meaning many foxes are once again going without the medical treatment they desperately need which sadly happens every year due to the volume of foxes needing help.  Each year it seems to become slightly worse than the last.

 

There is an urgent need for a facility of this magnitude in the South of the country.  This is why plans have been drawn up and now The Fox Hospital is at the fundraising/crowdfunding stage.  Plans are complete, all costings and suppliers confirmed, all equipment finalised, the project just needs the funding goal to be hit then it is full steam ahead.

The Fox Hospital will accept fox patients from members of the public, veterinary practices, other rescuers, rehabbers, wildlife rescue organisations, charities and sanctuaries for any reason with any injury, condition or disability.

With more space and dedicated fox facilities than any other sanctuary in the country, more veterinary kennels than the average individual veterinary practices and the ability for veterinary professionals to work on site should they wish, this will provide the care and attention they deserve which is so lacking in the UK.

ways to help

I rely solely on donations and kindness, I am not paid at all.

If you find values and compassion in what I do please consider assisting, I need your help.

Rescuing, rehabilitating, and providing basic, intensive aftercare and veterinary treatment to fox patients is expensive.  Even just daily basic consumables like food and puppy pads alone costs more than £3.07 per fox per day, not including veterinary bills, fuel costs and general running costs.  Multiply that by the number of patients and you can see how quickly that has become really expensive.

You are helping me to help them, I cannot afford to do it without this.

Hi, I love foxes and avoiding humans. 

 

I do all of this voluntarily, full time, independently and for free, as such I rely solely on kindness and donations since this isn't the sort of 'work' that is supported by the system that exists in the current society.

I put 100% of everything I have into caring for these patients and struggle to comprehend why people do things they do to animals in any negative way because humans are animals too.  I don't eat animals or wear them or exploit them because I consider them my friends whether they know it or not and I believe it is our duty as humans to care for nature and animals.

Kindness and compassion is effortless.
