Two little foxes have been recently brought to the Centre for Wild, Exotic and Domestic Animals Rescue “Feldman Ecopark Good Home.” A couple of Kharkiv students bought them out from a hunter. Young people rescued the animals from a sad destiny of becoming live training ‘devices’ for dogs.
“Little foxes – a boy and a girl – were sold at the hunting dog exhibition at a price of UAH 500 per animal. We figured out the destiny of these animals immediately, that is why we bought both of them without hesitation, as the seller sold only them. The fluffy ones spent night in our place and even caused mayhem among the neighbours. In the morning, we took the kids to a veterinary clinic in order to vaccinate them from rabies,” young animal rights activists Bohdan and Yaryna Kulish shared their story. “At the same time, we contacted the specialists, as we understand that it is impossible to keep foxes in a city apartment, that is why we decided to bring them to kind and reliable people. We called a hot line of Feldman Ecopark Good Home,” the number of which we found in the internet, and they immediately agreed to take our red little ones.”
The rescued foxes are in quarantine now. Later, they will undergo rehabilitation and released in the nature.
“The foxes haven’t become tame yet, so they will be able to join the life in natural environment. We are examining them, in case of need, we will cure them and provide them with a proper meat diet suitable for a young, growing organism. After the foxes get stronger and older, we will release them in a safe place,” the head of the Centre for Wild, Exotic and Domestic Animals Rescue “Feldman Ecopark Good Home” Iryna Podvoiska told. “On behalf of our Centre and the whole animal rights movement, I would like to thank Bohdan and Yaryna for empathy and responsibility, as you acted as the Real Humans, good job!”
It should be reminded that the Centre for Wild, Exotic and Domestic Animals Rescue “Feldman Ecopark Good Home” deals with animal rights protection since 2010. It’s main goal is to rescue the animals from cruel treatment, to help the injured animals and the ones in trouble, to reduce the number of stray animals using only humane methods. Since its establishment, the total of more than 6,000 wild animals were rescued by the Centre, and nearly 22,000 domestic ones found their new owners. The project is implemented under the auspices of the International Charitable Foundation “Alexander Feldman Foundation.”
