Save Sydney Fox Rescue

This petition had 5,164 supporters

It is with a deep sense of sadness that I am writing to tell you all, as supporters of Sydney Fox Rescue, about a proposed Pest Control Order for Red Foxes in New South Wales.

If enacted the Pest Control Order will effectively force the closure of Sydney Fox Rescue. Keeping of foxes in captivity will become illegal. Our current fox families can apply for permits but no future permits will be issued for foxes found after the Order is enacted. Sydney Fox Rescue would no longer be able to rescue injured or orphaned foxes and no future foxes could legally be rehomed or kept in captivity in New South Wales.

 We need your help.
