Can You Adopt a Baby Fox?

It is possible to adopt a baby fox as a pet, providing the exotic pet laws in your state allow it. Foxes are considered to be a non-domesticated species and, as such, strict rules are in place regarding their ownership.

There are several different breeds of fox that you can keep as a pet, including the Fennec fox, known for its small size and large ears, and the Silver fox, a domesticated breed from Russia. Foxes require a lot of care and attention, including both outdoor and indoor spaces to play and careful observation when they are with other pets. It is important to ensure your chosen vet is able to treat foxes, as it can be difficult to locate a practice willing to work with exotic animals.
