Tennessee is one of those states that has a permit program for reds and their color variations in place but it is very rare that they will grant anyone a permit for pet purposes.

Most fur farm laws dictate that a certain number of pelts be taken per year, meaning that using shed fur isn't going to fly. It's honestly just easier to get an Arctic or Fennec, whichever suits your lifestyle better.

I own 3 red foxes in tn, and it's fairly easy to get a permit as long as you get from an approved usda licensed breeder. You can call walter cook at twra and ask about the breeder you are interested in to see if they are approved. I know Michael fraizer is in bybee,tn and breeds and is obviously approved.that's where 2 of my babies came from. You can look him or me up on Facebook. Until 2015 it was next to impossible to get permit for reds, but now it's a matter of filing out the paper,finding an approved breeder before hand and sending in a yearly fee of $31

Who breeds in Idaho? To my knowledge it's not legal to import foxes and there is only one owner there that I have ever heard of who imported his through some loophole. May be wrong, but would like to know who this is. :)

We are in TN and have a Marble. Reds and Gray are legal here and are required to have a permit. It's only $31 a year. Other foxes are allowed without a permit.

Do any of you you know anyone in Tennessee who could take in a red fox WITHOUT the intent to raise it for fur? I need someone who would allow it to live a natural, healthy life, providing it with plenty of space, safety relative to complete nature, and supply food and water, if it doesn't learn to hunt. It was orphaned. It will not have a mommy teaching it to hunt or to protect itself.

That's a tough one as it is illegal to own foxes in tn unless they've came from a licensed breeder...I don't know of any rehabbers that takes foxes, but that doesn't mean they don't exist, I can ask around, but unless it goes to a licensed rehabber it can't recieve vet care or be kept legally
