Prior to being placed with us at Safe Haven, Dash was hit by a car. Because the state of Nevada does not permit the rehabilitation and reintroduction of foxes to the wild, Dash had no other choice but to become a permanent resident.
Dash is very timid and shy, and initially tended to avoid our other fox residents. It wasn’t until we introduced Dash to Sierra, another kit fox resident, that he finally came out of his shell. Today, the two are great friends, constantly running and playing together in their den.
