This baby fox, named Ayla, was given a second chance when she was rescued from a fur farm. She was only four weeks old and was born in captivity, so she can’t be released into the wild.
Now, she has a loving forever home and her humans take great care of her. She gets to explore mountains and lakes, and hangs out on beaches to watch the sun set. You can follow along on her journey on her Instagram page.
Fur farming is the practice of breeding or raising certain types of animals for their fur. According to PETA, 85 percent of the fur industry’s skins come from animals on fur factory farms, where thousands of animals are usually kept in wire cages for their entire lives. To cut costs, fur farmers cram animals into extremely small cages, which prevents them from being able to move around. Rows of these cages are often kept in dark, dirty sheds or barns.
Thankfully, Ayla never has to worry about this ever again, but there are still thousands of animals who do. If you’d like to help put an end to this horrible practice, refuse to buy any products made with fur, and sign PETA’s pledge to be fur-free.
