How You Can Contribute
There are many ways in which you can help The Canid Project, from monetary donations, to shopping our Amazon wish list, to volunteering. We thank you sincerely from the bottom of our hearts for any contributions; we could not do this without you.
100% of every donation goes directly to funding The Canid Project. We appreciate your support! When you donate you will receive exclusive updates on our efforts via email. Your donation will also be listed on our website and newsletter, unless you choose to be anonymous.
We go through a lot of frozen mice and chicks for the foxes. It is super important that we add this as part of their diet because of the levels of calcium the whole animal, bones and all, provide. It also gets them used to the smell, feel, and look of the wild rodents and birds they will find on their own in the wild, thus providing them with more for their skill set once they are released. If you'd like to contribute, we order from perfectprey.com. The foxes go through about 12 of each a day, which is roughly 336 mice and 336 chicks a month. We order the packs of 25 of LARGE ADULT MICE and DAY OLD CHICKS. Thank you! Please have them shipped to: The Canid Project ATTN: Amy Shutt, 7809 Jefferson Hwy, Suite G, Room 2, Baton Rouge, LA 70809 and email me the tracking info so I can be available to accept the perishable package: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Amazon Wish List is full of the things we need for our state-permitted Fox Rehabilitation program. As we are just starting out, you will see quite a few things that are big one time purchases, but also many everyday items for the foxes in our care that we will need like food, gloves, medical items, fleece blankets etc. We appreciate every item that is purchased and sent our way. Please write a note when purchasing so we will know who to thank!
