Please welcome the Fur the ‘More Charity Guest
Hello Everyone! It’s Isabelle from Frisky’s Wildlife and Primate Sanctuary, wanting to first thank everyone for choosing us as the charity for Fur the More again this year!
I am really excited to represent Frisky’s as well! For those who are unfamiliar with Frisky’s, we’re a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization that is located in Woodstock, Maryland. Frisky’s works with three types of animals, which are domestics, exotics, and wildlife.
We help re-home domesticated pets, like parakeets, guinea pigs, and rabbits (except cats and dogs.) Most animals are surrenders that owners no longer can or wish to care for them. We care and provide for them until we can find these pets forever homes.
We are also the permanent home for exotics that cannot be returned to the public, such as our coatimundi and primates. Primates do not make good pets! Eventually, their care and handling become too challenging for their owners, and this is how many have come to us at Frisky’s. Once they are here though, we provide them with healthy and appropriate living conditions, species specific enrichments, balanced nutrition, and a safe environment for them to thrive.
In addition, we take in thousands of orphaned, displaced and injured wildlife each year. These include songbirds, raptors, mammals, reptiles, amphibians… (But never kraken, sorry.)
We also would take in unicorns, winged dragons, hippogryphs, and pegai; but the USDA has not approved those applications yet…
These little ones depend on us for everything, including warmth, protection, and nutrition. Once they are strong enough, we release them back into the wild. It is a bittersweet process since we become the family for these little guys, but to be truly successful, we have to wish them to never return to us. However, we hope each and every released animal will live a long, healthy and happy life.
Thank you again for your support!
