The staff at Dogs Trust Kenilworth Rehoming Centre had to laugh this week when a mix-up by a kind member of the public resulted in them almost admitting two fox cubs into their kennels.
The two adorable fox cubs were brought to Dogs Trust by a member of the public who thought they were abandoned puppies!
Fortunately the Centre has a great relationship with the Nuneaton & Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary who have taken them in and they are currently being hand reared by the staff at the sanctuary.
Sandra Wilson, Dogs Trust Kenilworth Rehoming Centre Manager, added:
“Luckily we were able to give these two adorable cubs to the local wildlife sanctuary to care for. We have around 200 stray or abandoned dogs here at the Rehoming Centre and simply don’t have room to branch out to caring for foxes too – although they are extremely cute!”
Stacey Clark, Deputy Manager of the Nuneaton & Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, comments:
“These two cubs are tiny and if someone found them then it would be easy to think they might be puppies. Fortunately this kind-hearted passer by did the right thing in bringing them to the Centre;
granted it was the wrong one! But because we all work together to help animals we are in touch and can make sure that they are cared for and there is a happy ending to this tale!”
