ADVERTISING A SKUNK FOR RE-HOMING IN FLORIDA ON CRAIGSLIST, OR ANY OTHER SITE, IS ILLEGAL WITHOUT A CLASS III EXHIBITION AND SALE PERMIT FROM THE FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE COMMISSION. THESE SALE SITES ARE MONITORED, AND VIOLATORS CAN BE PROSECUTED. PLEASE BE SAFE, AND THINK OF THE WELFARE OF THE SKUNK. WE CAN FIND A LOVING HOME FOR YOUR SKUNK.
The Florida Skunk Rescue Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation, operated totally by volunteers. We are dedicated to fostering and finding homes for domestic skunks in Florida who can no longer be cared for in their current situation.
When funds are available we also help skunk owners faced with emergency medical care for their skunk if it poses a burden to their finances.
Our current goal is to raise enough money to set up an separate fund just for emergency medical situations.
Our dedicated rescue workers, all holding current Florida Conservation Commission Class III Permits, are located throughout Florida. In most cases the skunk can be picked up the same day as we receive notification. If you need immediate assistance, please contact us by phone. Contact numbers are listed at the bottom of this page and on our Rescue Help page. Through our extensive nationwide network, skunks located outside of Florida can often also be found adoptive homes. The Florida Skunk Rescue is not a shelter. We do not warehouse rescues. All skunks rescued by Florida Skunk Rescue are kept in a licensed private home until a suitable new home can be found.
All foster and adoptive families undergo a background investigation to determine their suitability as skunk parents. Although we do not charge a fee for our services, donations are welcome. All Florida foster and adoptive families must also show proof of the required Florida Class III Wildlife Permit. Permit information may be found by contacting The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, or going to our permit page and clicking on the link provided.
Networking and Education
Florida Skunk Rescue also provides help and advice to skunk owners and prospective skunk owners. Please feel free to contact any of our rescue personnel for help.
