Hey guys. So, I'm going to ask for help here. I normally don't, but right now i'm out of a job and my medical situation has me scraping the bottom of the barrel for funds.
This spring, we have two foxes living in our backyard, under our shed. They're a mating pair, and they're cute as all be. However... they're very, very sick. They have really bad mange, and one has a noticeable limp. They haven't been hunting and are getting really skinny because they're so ill. They haven't left our backyard for 3 days, and are wandering around scratching patches of fur and scabby skin off.
We called SIX fucking wildlife organizations- no one will help them, and they said to either let them die, or call pest control and have them destroyed. That is NOT an option for us. We love animals, especially foxes, and I REFUSE to let them die the slow, painful, horrible death that mange provides.
We decided after some research to medicate and treat them ourselves, since they're living in our backyard. Unfortunately the medicine is very expensive and our time is limited. We think the female is pregnant- if she gives birth to her kits before we cure her mange, the babies will most likely die as they don't have a good immune system to fight off the parasites and secondary infections they cause.
The medication is expensive however. Because we have to treat 2 foxes instead of one, it's double the dosage. So that's around $60+ dollars for the medication, and the wet cat food,eggs and meat we have to buy to feed them safely.
So, I'm going to be trying to offer some commissions on this account and adoptables on my other account to help raise money to buy the medication and food to help these poor animals. If the 'wild life foundation' won't help them, we sure as hell will. I will not let two beautiful, innocent animals with kits on the way die.
Please, if you can help in any way, I'd be sincerely appreciative. The foxes will thank you too! ;v;/
