Message from Jennifer Howard; thanks for attending the Belle Ewart and Gilford seminars about foxes!

Thank you to all who came out to the Belle Ewart and Gilford talks about our local foxes.

Our talks have been very well received.

Seeing the wild foxes going from being sick and transforming back to their beautiful selves is rewarding.

Some donations came for which we are grateful, every dollar helps us rehabilitate these animals.

Due to the popularity of this subject, and our community’s interest in helping these foxes, there will be a third seminar on August 7th at the Royal Canadian Legion in Belle Ewart.

Orphaned and injured wild animals in our care at Procyon Wildlife can only survive based on our volunteers' dedication and commitment. Some of the most rewarding challenges can be the toughest, however, the rewards of seeing wildlife go free because of that hard work and dedication are priceless knowing those precious lives were given a second chance!

If you or someone you know might have a few extra hours per day to answer our hotline phones, please contact us at info@procyonwildlife.com We will provide remote telephone training.
