The story of Martí the fox

Arrival at the center

Sponsor Martí the fox

On 30/08/2023 we received a call from WC Vallcalent to see if we could take in a fox that showed no signs of illness but was in very bad condition.

Severe condition

The little fox was lethargic, so we put him under a hot red light, hydrated him and gave him medication intravenously. We were not at all sure if he would survive.


Two days later we have a little hope. The fox was standing, but wow, he couldn’t see anything!

Our veterinarian diagnosed that he had received a very hard blow to the head.

We are looking for a name

Sponsor Martí the fox

We started feeding the little fox with a syringe. His improvements had encouraged us to find a name for him. His name is Martí. (We name the animals in honor of our members).

Martí needs a home

Our hope that he would regain his sight was minimal. The little fox Martí will not be able to return to the wild.

While he was slowly recovering in the clinic, we had to build a space for him.


In record time Eloi together with our interns built with impressive determination a new space where Martí will be able to live safe from the attacks of the predators that naturally inhabit our area.


Since it is necessary to monitor Martí’s health on a regular basis, Anna is working with him.

*) This type of interaction should never be done with wild foxes.
