About "The Pet Fox"
The goal of this site isn't to convince you to get a pet fox. They do not typically make good pets for most people, and require a lot of time, money, and commitment. The purpose of "The Pet Fox" is to provide good information for people who are considering buying a pet fox, or who have already taken that step and are looking for tips and advice about caring for their pet.
Gizmo is a North American Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes fulva). He was born in captivity, and purchased legally from a breeder. Because he was the runt of the litter, his mother rejected him, and the breeder pulled him out and bottle-fed him right from the start. He is completely tame, and completely socialized to people.
How To Contact:
Do not contact me asking for breeder information!
I do not give out names, phone numbers, or any information about fox breeders to anyone I do not know very well in real life, so please do not email me asking. I have no way of knowing if you're someone who is seriously interested, or an animal rights nut who wants to go set their house on fire.
Want to help?
Due to popular demand, I am adding a "donate" button for those of you who wish to help care for Gizmo. All proceeds will go towards the planned 250 sq. ft. extension to his outdoor play yard.
