The dog that actually isn't a dog at all

The small creature that was found by a family near Marsh Lake during the Easter weekend of 2014 has created a lot of buzz. Thought originally to be a puppy only days old it was brought eventually to the Wildlife Preserve and can certainly be confirmed as a Red Fox.

We did it! Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of support, donations and encouragement. The fox will be staying at the Preserve and building plans are under way to have his new enclosure built before the winter....stay tuned!

Thank You!
