Our goal is to rescue and provide care to orphaned and injured native wildlife.
At For Fox Sake, we believe that all wild animals deserve to live free as part of the natural ecosystem. When wild animals are orphaned, injured, sick, or otherwise in need of help, we work to stabilize them, treat them and to release them to their native environment. We also help to educate the public to minimize human-wildlife conflicts, to protect both human health and the natural world.
Like most rehabilitation facilities, For Fox Sake started as a very small home-based facility. Our founder and executive director chose to specialize in the rescue of “rabies vector species”– skunks, foxes, and raccoons— because these animals are under-served due to the inherent risk and difficulty of their care.
After For Fox Sake was destroyed by a tornado on April 12, 2020, the community and general public came together to help rebuild. At that point, we knew it was time to incorporate as a 501(c)3 nonprofit and to expand our vision to include more educational programming and more advanced on-site veterinary care.
In October 2021 we created a Northwest Georgia-based branch of For Fox Sake, specifically dedicated to the care and rescue of native reptiles and amphibians. For The Shell Of It is based in Flintstone, Georgia and, like its parent organization, is a home-based facility.
For Fox Sake Wildlife Rescue is an accredited 501(c)3 nonprofit organization classified as a public charity. All donations made to For Fox Sake are tax-deductible under federal law. Our employer identification number (EIN) is 85-0724061.
