Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: We are proud to be the only 501c3 animal rescue in the Florida Keys that takes in foxes that have been saved from the fur trade. Our mission, aside from giving our foxes a permanent and loving home, is to educate the public on the cruel fur industry in an effort to reduce the demand for fur and eventually end fur farming in the United States.

Results: We have given a home to six foxes that were saved from fur farms in the Midwest.

Have been following them from the start they are amazing and take so well care of the animals and even care so much for the animals that are in fur farms!

Nicole is one of the biggest animal advocates I know. If there’s an animal in need of help, she’s dropping everything to save them. Her dedication to help these foxes is outstanding. Her whole life revolves around making their quality of life as best as possible as well as educating the public on how to avoid supporting fur farms. I was not aware how makeup brushes, eyelashes, and other items are products of the fur trade. I now know to check and research to ensure I never support such atrocities. I was blessed to meet the newest rescue Reef. He had surgery to correct some health issues he endured on the fur farm. He was pouncing on me with his cone and it may just be the cutest picture ever.

Pawsitive Beginnings is doing amazing work for animals. Foxes that were subject to unimaginable abuse are rehabilitated into happy new lives of care, love, and play. This takes an incredible amount of work and resources, and I have met few people as dedicated as Nicole. Another thing that sets her apart is that she goes beyond caretaker and acts as a passionate advocate for foxes. It is truly special. I have been blown away by Pawsitive Beginnings.

Nicole started the only mon profit fox rescue in the Florida Keys. She puts the foxes needs as her top priority and tirelessly gives her all day after day for a cause she strongly believes in. She has even driven across the country to rescue foxes! If not for her, these foxes would be dead and most likely fashion garments or the very least suffering on a fur farm somewhere in a tiny filthy cage. The world needs more people like Nicile Navarro. She is truly an inspiration.

I had never even heard of fur farming before Pawsitive Beginning began raising awareness. I was among one of the first to donate toward the long trip to pick up the first two that arrived when this nonprofit was born. I also enjoy the privilege of Co-Sponsorship for one of the foxes monthly. I am beyond impressed with the commitment and dedication of the young woman who founded Pawsitive Beginning.

Pawsitive Beginnings owner crossed the country to rescue foxes and to demonstrate against fur industry. An amazing sanctuary where foxes are happy and so well cared.
And some of the foxes are already real stars on the Internet.
Come and meet all foxes on Pawsitive Beginnings' pages on social médias.

Pawsitive Beginnings is an incredible nonprofit that has helped foxes that have been rescued from fur farms. Without Nicole these foxes would never have the chance to feel the ground, play with toys, know what compassion is, get the vet care they desperately needed and get unlimited love and care!! Without Pawsitive Beginnings these foxes would live out their life being in a metal cage, stacked on top of each other. Nicole gives them a chance at life, a hope to live and a reason to move forward and forget the fur farm. Nicole has an unbelievable heart and her compassion for animals is remarkable!! I will and alway will support Nicole on her journey. I’m so proud of everything she has accomplished so far and can’t wait to see what else is in store for Pawsitive Beginnings.

Nicole is such a good hearted person who works with passion and love to provide the best care to her foxes.
I admire her creativity in finding ways to capture our attention, sometimes with humor and other times with the desire to share information, but always interesting and genuine.
Wishing her the best.

This non profit is so inspiring on how Nicole grew this non profit in a year. She was very knowledgeable and hands on before starting rescuing foxes from fur farms in her home. Her goal is to help educate and raise awareness about fur farms. I have witness extremely care for each fox as well as dedication to the goal of awareness every day. She does a fantastic job! Her love keeps growing by saving two more younger foxes. It’s a honor to see how the non profit has taken off!
