Fennec Foxes do NOT have the strong musk odor that other foxes have, and all research I have found indicates that they tend to cause less allergies than perhaps cats or dogs.  However, the urine is definitely pungent.  I use Fresh Step kitty litter and notice no odor unless the litter needs changing.

Actually fennec foxes are hypoallergenic. And there Heine does not smell like ghr average white or red fox. The animals can also be litterbox trained. These pets are like a mix of cag and dog. They are friendly and loving and will behave well as long ss they are given proper care

From my research, because technically it is a wild animal it is more hypoallergenic then dogs or cats. Fennec foxes also have little smell. They can be trained to do certain things like sit and fetch. They can be potty trained ising a litter box or puppy pads. I would recomend doing a lot of research on this animal

Expertise

I can answer questions on raising orphaned raptors and wildlife such as Raccoons, Skunks, Oppossums, Ducks, Geese, other songbirds and animals. Turtle shell repair, fish hook removal from waterfowl. I have not had experience with exotic animals, operating on animals or diagnosing diseases.

Experience

I have worked as a wildlife rehabilitator for over 30 years. I have experience mending turtle shells, removing fish hooks from Pelicans, hand feeding Hawks, Owls and other birds. I have raised orphaned raptors, ducks, wild geese, grebes, squirrels, deer, raccoons, oppossums, goats, etc. I worked at Pelican Man's Rehab Center in Sarasota Florida as a volunteer for several weeks, I worked for eight years at the West Virginia Raptor Rehabilitation Center in Morgantown, WV, where I kept a Barred Owl for the Educational Demos for over six years and showed him at events.

Education/Credentials
I grew up on a farm where I started taking in injured and orphaned animals, talking to the local Veterinarian as to what to do for the animal. We had a dairy farm where I did most of the non-operative Vet work under the guidance of a licensed Vet. I have had 30 years of on the job training working with minor animal injuries and hand raising. I have worked for 30 years at a major University as an Information Systems Specialist. Wildlife Rehab has been a hobby and a passion of mine and I have worked with experts in the field to learn what I can to aide wildlife however I can. I worked eight years as a volunteer at the West Virginia Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, in Morgantown, West Virginia and several summers at the Pelican Man Sanctuary in Sarasota Florida. Raising orphans, minor operations on gunshot wounds, setting broken bones, etc.
