- HELPING WILD FOXES
At PAWS, as well as helping you care for your domestic pet, we also want to help you look after the wildlife you might find in your back garden.
In Britain, we are extremely lucky to have so much wildlife around us and there are a number of ways we can help the animals that come into our gardens in their hunt for food. The type of garden you have will determine the type of wildlife it will attract. A garden with few plants, trees and grass will attract less wildlife than one with lots of hedges and flowering plants which provide food and shelter. Ponds will attract insects and amphibians, while compost heaps can be a great shelter for hedgehogs.
Foxes are common in both towns and countryside areas, and particularly enjoy foraging for food in rubbish bins, where they can find a wealth of tasty leftovers. Most foxes live in large groups in areas with suitable shelter and a good source of food.
