Summary For The Year 2008
National Fox Welfare Society’s Activities
January - December 2008
To give an indication of the National Fox Welfare Society's commitment to foxes,
below is a brief rundown of activities for the period January 2008 to December 31st
Sarcoptic Mange Treatment: The Society sends out treatment, free of charge, to householders
willing to feed foxes that are suffering from the terrible condition, Sarcoptic Mange.
Foxes that, untreated, would die a long lingering death. This treatment went out
to help cure a staggering 3435 foxes in the twelve month period. Because this treatment
is sent out free of charge, NFWS incurs the cost; in just 12 months we spent roughly
£17,175 on these treatments alone! We sent a further 550 treatments out in the ten
months, at a total of £5,437 worth, for foxes suffering from other ailments and conditions.
In just the last few months we have paid out over £4,000 in vet fees alone!
If the above wasn't proof enough of our commitment, in addition NFWS volunteers rescued
a further 429 foxes that were seriously ill or injured. Furthermore, to catch still
mobile foxes with life threatening conditions, the Society set 378 cage traps. We
have also had 219 orphaned fox cubs.
Adding all the above together we arrive at an overall total of 5,011 foxes directly
helped by NFWS in just 12 months of the year 2008. This is an amazing total of about
14 foxes a day, every day of 2008!!!. Of course, this doesn't take into account the
number of foxes we have saved from contracting Sarcoptic Mange by treating their
family members. Although this figure is hard to quantify, we believe it could run
into hundreds in this year alone.
What makes the above figures even more remarkable is that we endeavour to get a rescuer
out to a critically injured fox within an hour, thus ensuring that a needy fox is
given the urgent attention that it deserves. By supporting the National Fox Welfare
Society, you will help us to ensure a sick fox is treated, an injured fox rescued,
an orphaned fox cub successfully rehabilitated back into the wild, Also, that our
reputation as ·The Fox·s First Emergency Service' is maintained. If you are able
