Our two-part rescue mission at Arctic Fox Daily:
1. Provide sanctuary to captive-bred unwanted, neglected, abandoned, or non-releasable wildlife, specializing in foxes.
2. Practice wildlife rehabilitation: We rescue, raise, and release orphaned, New York-native wildlife. The end goal of wildlife rehabilitation is always to allow the animal to take its place back in nature.
"Hi everyone, my name's Kimberly, and I've been volunteering my time working with and raising rescued wildlife and exotic pets since 2012. In 2020, I founded Arctic Fox Daily Wildlife Rescue Inc.
My family and I reside in New York State. I have a federal license that allows me to legally own and educate about our two Arctic foxes, Toto and Lulu, and our Red fox rescues. All of the non-releasable foxes currently in our possession were born in captivity, and were not taken from the wild. We love sharing a look into the behaviors and lives of these beautiful animals, enjoy helping people learn about the realities of exotic pet ownership, and enjoy furthering conservation efforts through education.
Separately, I am also a state-licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator, which allows me to legally volunteer my time raising New York-native orphaned and injured wildlife, with the ultimate goal always being release back into the wild. This non-paying work is time-consuming, many times heartbreaking, but most of all - it's incredibly rewarding! The feeling affiliated with opening up an enclosure door and allowing a rehabilitated animal to take its place back in nature is so unique and special.
As of September 2020, we are officially a registered non-profit organization! We are now just waiting for the IRS to send confirmation of our tax-exempt status. We are so excited about this big step, and know that it will ultimately help us help more animals! Stay tuned - we can't wait to announce when we get that status!"
We are personally responsible for all costs associated with wildlife rehabilitation and domestic fox rescue, and receive no funding from the government or any other agency. We rely on donations, gifts from our wish list, or money out of our own pockets. No contribution is ever too small - thank you for your support!
