become a sponsor 

You can sponsor patients or permanently disabled residents or both if you wish.  Each is explained below.

Your sponsorship helps me provide care to all of these beautiful beings taken in and goes directly to their care, be it on veterinary treatment and remedies, intensive or basic care, physiotherapy and rehabilitation where needed, medical consumables and food.  

to buy food, disposable bedding or laundry costs and parasite prevention.  That's not including medication or veterinary treatment.

it costs me   £ 3.07
per fox per day 

sponsor patients

Patients stay length varies depending on condition/injury/recovery needs and range from 24 hours to the duration of antibiotics to many months for more serious injuries or physiotherapy.  Foxes are expensive to care for whether that's disposable bedding, food, medication, parasite treatment, surgery costs, rehabilitation, routine vet visits, etc.

one-time donation (patients)

monthly donation (patients)

specific patient

Sometimes its impossible not to fall in love with a particular patient so this option was added for that reason.  If you would like to cover the care of a specific patient this is worked out as follows:

specific patient (basic)

  • Covers what it costs daily for food, disposable infection control recovery bedding and basic parasite protection. 

  • Does not cover medication or veterinary bills.

  • Contribute towards or cover the veterinary bills is optional.

equates to   £ 3.07 per day 

multiplied by anticipated recovery period

specific patient (full)

For those who wish to cover everything for a specific patient exclusively:

  • Daily cost for food, disposable infection control recovery bedding and basic parasite protection for the duration of the patient's stay (whether it is one day or however many weeks or months depending on the injury/illness until release. 

  • Any essential veterinary treatment, medication, blood tests, etc.

  • If a particular patient is looking like they need an extended stay, you have the option to change at any point.

equates to   £ 3.07 per day 

multiplied by anticipated recovery period

sponsor a hospital recovery bed

Your name appears on a plaque placed prominently on one of the recovery bed kennel doors.  These appear in videos of the patients on social media.

By sponsoring a recovery kennel, you help to provide recovery to the patients in those kennels when they are occupied.  Multiple patients will pass through the kennel and be provided with mild to life saving treatment. 

These sponsorships are limited to 80 as there are 80 recovery beds.

equates to   £ 3.07 per day 

multiplied by anticipated recovery period

sponsor disabled residents

Residents are generally those with some form of disability that makes their chances of survival in the wild low to none, including neurological issues, missing limb(s), irreparable parasite damage, deformity or other condition.  These are previous or ongoing patients depending on their injuries so there is the cost associated with initial treatment in addition to ongoing physio, rehab, medication, routine bloods/checks, past surgery, etc. Some will require lifelong care, medication or physio.

There are 3 levels:

  • Primary Sponsor

  • Additional Sponsor

  • Special Exclusive Sponsor

primary sponsor

  • Monthly reoccurring sponsor donation.

  • Contacted regarding any major medical or life threatening decisions or conditions with your fox.

  • Mentioned/tagged/named as a sponsor on social media posts about your sponsored fox

    • please note, during busy/peak periods (such as cub season) there may be less posts about your sponsored fox if priority is given to highlight a particular patient or condition that requires awareness or education opportunity - personal/private updates are always welcome. 

  • Updates as and when requested.  Please note there may be a slight delay in reply in the event of emergency patient intakes or general patient care priorities but time will always be allocated to replying. ​

  • Not expected to but given the option to contribute or cover veterinary treatment, where applicable.

  • Welcome to send items to your fox,

    • although you must check first to ensure the item is suitable (for example some foxes are not allowed toys if they specifically have a highly destructive personality, are known to destroy or injure themselves on toys or said items or if they do not like or are not allowed a certain food or treat due to intolerance or medical condition.

  • Behind the scenes raw unedited clips, photos, videos of your fox where it doesn't invade their boundaries and comfort.

£95 per month

equals £ 3.07 per day
which is what it costs per fox per day to buy food, disposable bedding or laundry costs and parasite prevention.

(Not including any other medication or veterinary treatment).

additional sponsor

Essentially very similar to being a primary sponsor, but mentioned as an additional not primary sponsor 

  • Mentioned/tagged/named on social media posts about your sponsored fox as an additional, not primary, sponsor 

    • please note, during busy/peak periods (such as cub season) there may be less posts about your sponsored fox if priority is given to highlight a particular patient or condition that requires awareness or education opportunity - personal/private updates are always welcome. 

  • Having additional sponsors to a fox helps towards any additional care they need such as medication not covered by just the primary sponsor amount alone and helps go towards other things that help them.

exclusive only sponsor

  • You are the only sponsor of your chosen fox.  This gives you exclusive sponsorship locking any additional sponsors out.

  • Since this option locks out any others from sponsoring the chosen fox, the sponsorship amount is higher to reflect a potential loss of other help towards the individual fox but it provides exclusivity to you. 

  • Monthly reoccurring sponsor donation.

  • Contacted regarding any major medical or life threatening decisions or conditions with your fox.

  • Given the option to contribute or cover veterinary treatment.

  • Mentioned/tagged/named on social media posts about your sponsored fox as the exclusive only sponsor.

    • please note, during busy/peak periods (such as cub season) there may be less posts about your sponsored fox if priority is given to highlight a particular patient or condition that requires awareness or education opportunity - personal/private updates are always welcome. 

  • Updates as and when requested.  Please note there may be a slight delay in reply in the event of emergency patient intakes or general patient care priorities but time will always be allocated to replying. ​

  • Welcome to send items to your fox,

    • although you must check first to ensure the item is suitable (for example some foxes are not allowed toys if they specifically have a highly destructive personality, are known to destroy or injure themselves on toys or said items or if they do not like or are not allowed a certain food or treat due to intolerance or medical condition.

  • Behind the scenes raw unedited clips, photos, videos of your fox where it doesn't invade their boundaries and comfort.

£395 per month

equates to £ 3.07 per day
plus exclusivity perk fee of
£ 300 due to the prevention of any other donator potential.

Thank you. I will be in touch.

 

notes on sponsoring patients/residents

Unfortunately, the nature of what I do involves rescuing or taking in patients who are sometimes in a really bad way.  Foxes are so resilient that they only start to show symptoms or signs of illness or injury when they're too weak or vulnerable to be able to hide/mask it since they are expert masters at masking pain and suffering.  Sponsoring patients is either a specific patient or generically contributing to all patients so please do bear in mind that even though I try everything possible for each patient, sometimes it is their body which decides their time despite full medical care, as such it is a heartbreaking part of this that some may pass away even under intensive care or veterinary supervision.  

Foxes including orphaned youngsters need to have limited contact with humans, as such there are only certain times I will take photos or video and that is normally at unavoidable interaction times of wound management, feeding or changing bedding and will depend on the need of the patient so if one is particularly scared, vulnerable or critical there may not be any photos or videos of the patient or they may be potato quality, I will always prioritise their care, safety and comfort over photo opportunities.  This is why sometimes there are no photos of video at the vets as I am generally the one handling the patient for the veterinary staff.  Please bear this in mind if there is a lack of photos and therefore updates publicly about a patient, that said, as a sponsor you are more than welcome to updates privately which my be in either text or audio message or both.

There will never be an opportunity to meet the fox in person, for few reasons:

  • For patients still under medical treatment this is obvious, but for fully recovered yet permanently disabled foxes or cubs, some simply do not want human contact or presence, particularly anyone they aren't familiar with.  Some love to hide, some think its hilarious to move during a photo leaving a blurred mess.

  • Unfortunately being in the UK, which is different to the US, illegal fox hunting and hunt supporters operate and I will always endeavour to protect these foxes from harm.  This means I do not give out their location publicly nor to any sponsors.  I realise some excellent sanctuaries and rehabbers offer tours and meet & greets in the US, and if I were in the US this is something i would most likely safely be able to offer but in the UK it simply is not safe or wise to do so.

  • I am also of the view that foxes do not really want human contact unless they choose on their own terms, as such I would never force this upon them.  Foxes (residents) who do interact through their own choice are the ones you may see on videos being tolerant or 'friendly' and this is purely on their terms.  Many, however, simply would rather avoid humans, which I can related to.
