|SkunkHaven.Net is our Domestic Skunk Care and
Rescue site. We own and operate SkunkHaven™ Shelter.
We are a 501(c)3 Tax Exempt corporation.
We are an international rescue and assistance group that will help anyone with their pet skunks. If you need advice or can not care for your skunk any longer please call or email us for help. We have our APHIS-USDA license and Ohio permits for transport and dealer activities. We have contacts in many areas that can help you!
We are dedicated to collecting and distributing information on proper dietary health, medical treatments, and traditional and non-traditional recuperative processes.
All of these efforts cost money, we are not funded by the government. Even one dollar helps buy food for the skunks. All money will go toward skunks, medical supplies, food, bedding, toys, vet bills, etc.
Please HELP keep the shelter alive by donating something. We are always in need of supplies and other items for the shelter.
|You may donate here:|
Contact us if you have a pet skunk that you can no longer care for.
would you like to adopt a pet skunk? You can view skunks that are available for adoption here. We have members and associates throughout the US, Canada, and several European countries, and can provide direct support and assistance in almost all cases.
THIS WEBSITE IS GEARED TO THE BETTERMENT OF CAPTIVE BORN DOMESTIC . TAKING ANY ANIMAL OUT OF THE WILD IS ILLEGAL AND HAS THE RISK OF EXPOSURE TO DIEASES.
Warning > Never let anyone touch or pet your captive born domesticated skunk or allow any of their pets near your skunk. If medical attention is needed, doctors and hospital staff are required to report bites by exotic pets to the local health department. This even means if the owner of the captive born or family member gets bit!!!! This may lead to your skunk being seized and euthanized to be tested for rabies. There is no quarantine period. Although there are no cases of our pet captive skunks having rabies, people who do not own captive born skunks still assume the worst.
See Hannah's and Flower's Story --->Pet Alert 05/2012
A suggestion is for you to at least have your tetanus shot up to date. If your skunk bites
someone and you want to spend the money, hire a lawyer to fight from having your
beloved skunk put down and pay for the rabies shots that are required to be
taken after the bite. It's a series of five shots costing
around $215.00 each. Sometimes the insurance company will pay for
it. You have to work quickly due to the fact that the health dept. wastes
no time in killing your pet domestic skunk.
NEVER JOKE ABOUT BEING BIT BY YOUR PET SKUNK. THE WRONG PERSON EAVES DROPPING CAN STILL REPORT IT!
NOTE: This does not pertain to any animal that is
taken from the wild; you are taking a risk when taking any animal out of the
wild to make it into your pet. It would be wise to leave the wild life
alone. Buy captive born skunks by breeders.
If you find a wild skunk please read the following>It is illegal to take skunks from the wild in most states, if you find an abandoned or injured wild skunk contact a wildlife rehabilitation center for assistance. If you live in Ohio click here to find a wildlife rehabilitator. If you live outside of Northeast Ohio, please click here to find a rehabilitation facility near you to take in injured or orphaned skunks. If you need a referral we can assist you with finding a legal rehabilitator in your area.
THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU TAKE A ANIMAL OUT OF THE WILD TO MAKE IT YOUR PET PLEASE READ CLICK HERE
New Rabies testing may save our skunks from being put down. Read about it here... DNA Test
If your skunk gets out of the house it may not come back again. There are steps to take before and after an unfortunate occurance.
Warning about using METACAM for pain
If your skunk eats chocolate, this is what you should do.

|Dear Skunk Haven rescue:
When I launched Hendrick Boards, I had a simple goal - to help animals. I merely wanted to make a small difference. Never in my craziest imagination would I ever expect that Hendrick Boards would ever grow to support more than 150 amazing animal shelters, rescues and sanctuaries in every state across the nation. And, I never expected the outpouring of support we have received. I am truly humbled, yet excited about the future.
As we enter the holiday season, let's reflect what we have done together. Since January, we have helped raise $21,548 in "direct" donations and more than double that in "at-large" donations. We launched the "Critical Needs" initiative that has directly funded animals in need of surgeries, life-saving treatment and rehabilitation. We have grown to introduce a new Square It product each and every week with double donations. We have raised thousands to support animals suffering during natural catastrophes including the Montana/Colorado wildfires and, most recently, during Hurricane Sandy. And, we have continued to develop new and exciting regional campaigns that have extended our core message to save animals, spay and neuter, adopt, volunteer and give.
While we look fondly on where we have come, we are even more excited about where we will go together. In December, we will be rolling out an updated website, with new nonprofit partnership tools and running tallies of how much we have raised to save animals. In addition, we will be expanding our Square It options to include multiple styles and colors. Most importantly, we will be launching a new initiative called, "Animal Causes", which will allow us to consolidate our Critical Needs program, create regional, national and international campaigns aimed at raising awareness of issues affecting animals and expand our work helping animals during natural catastrophes.
However much we make improvements and introduce new initiatives, we also realize that it is about you and the amazing work you are doing to save and protect animals. We could never have come this far and grown so fast without you, and only together can we continue to make a difference for animals everywhere.

We look forward to working with you to close the month off strong.
Square It: HOPE
We are thrilled to introduce the HOPE design in two styles for this week's Square It: our tried and true t-shirt and, to kick off the colder months, a long-sleeve thermal. The HOPE tee gives back $10 and the long-sleeve thermals gives $12 back to your organization.
