On this summer day you can help one rare fox survive.
What's in these vials? A vaccine that protects island foxes from canine distemper virus (CDV).
It takes $20 to vaccinate an island fox against CDV and rabies. Donors like you have helped Friends of the Island Fox purchase these vials of vaccine. We are committed to providing vaccinations for 300–350 island foxes on Catalina Island in 2021.
But we still need to raise another $2,000!
Help FIF vaccinate island foxes!
CDV spreads rapidly through island fox populations and few survive. This virus caused the death of over 90% of the Catalina Island foxes in the late 1990s.

In 2021 - CDV is prevalent on the mainland in the Long Beach area, across from Catalina Island.
CDV is carried by raccoons and other wildlife, as well as pet dogs. Make sure your dog is vaccinated against canine distemper virus and help island foxes stay safe too.
$20 protects an island fox for a year!
