Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

By 2023 we are planning to purchase a larger property in Florida to be able to accommodate up to 16 foxes.

We will be launching a Capital Campaign in 2022 to raise funds to be able to build the necessary housing needed for these animals and prepare to move the current animal residents to the property we purchase.

We have a group of dedicated and regular donors who are expected to contribute to this incredible opportunity to expand our rescue.

Since our inception in 2020, we have welcomed six fur farm survivors into our care.

We have doubled our yearly donations from 2020 to 2021
