Silver is a captive-born Silver Fox from Wisconsin, USA. Silver was born at a fur farm and then purchased to be a pet. When it was realized that foxes don't make good pets, he was turned over to the local humane society. They transferred Silver to a wildlife rehabilitation centre in Duluth, Minnesota.
Silver was non-releasable, because he was born in captivity and is highly habituated to humans. The centre in Duluth couldn't provide Silver with a permanent home, so Aspen Valley offered to step in.
When we bring in companion animals from the United States and outside Ontario, we require permission from Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF). The animals must be vet checked, have all of their shots and males must be neutered.
