Saving Our Wildlife
We are a nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation facility dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned and injured native animals. We have a special focus on saving under-served wild animals including skunks, foxes, raccoons, bobcats, reptiles, and amphibians.
For Fox Sake is permitted by Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, with special authorization for species considered high-risk for rabies. We also professionally certified through the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council, and maintain care that meets or exceeds all standards set by the National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association. Additionally, we are licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to possess and exhibit native animals.
We believe that all wild animals deserve to live freely in the natural world whenever possible, but to be protected from unnecessary death and suffering. As humans, our pets, our cities, and our farms continuously intertwine with the wild world, wild animals often become orphaned or injured and need our help.
We work tirelessly to rescue orphaned, injured, and sick wild animals, with a particular focus on under-served, high-need species such as bobcats and foxes. We promote peaceful coexistence to protect animals and humans alike from unnecessary conflict.
Our patients return to nature after 90-120 days of rehabilitation in human care. This ensures proper recovery time and disease quarantine while respecting the animal’s right to a free life in the natural world.
