A COZY HOMES FOR OUR FOXES
Each enclosure is 10 x 10 x 12 foot high with an angled roof to allow heat to go up and out on hot days. Floors are made of concrete raised pavers to allow for deep cleaning and deodorizing. All enclosures have ramps, platforms and 2 lofts with therapeutic cooling beds. There are dig pits, and lounge beds and a dog house in each enclosure.
Enclosures are cleaned daily with a straightening throughout the day. 1 time per week the enclosures are scrubbed out with Angry Orange cleaner and water. Water and dry food are replaced every other day unless needed sooner.
Enclosures are built to order at intake. We have 1 enclosure for new intakes that need immediate placement until their enclosure can be completed which takes about 2-3 weekends to build.
