to The Dutch Skunk Foundation site.
Dutch Skunk Foundation and their volunteers apply themselves to
educate people about domestic skunks as pets and offer shelter for
those skunks that need a new home for what ever reason. If
possible the foundation will try to be present at animal events
and at animal welfare organisations.
foundation is not State-aided and depends fully on the efforts of
the volunteers, gifts, donations and the little bit of money that
comes in through adoptions, when a skunk is given up and the support
a skunk program. But more often the volunteers pay a lot out of
their own pockets…
foundation is a Tax Exempt organisation, your donation can be deductable.

volunteers shelter the skunks at their own home. This is done next
to their regular jobs, keeping house and their social lives purely
out of the love for the skunks. The volunteers are, unfortunately,
not always able to answer phone calls due to jobs, visits to the
vet, cleaning out the skunk homes, etc. That's why we prefer to
have contact by e-mail if you wish to have information, support
or if you'd like to adopt a skunk; that way we can answer your questions
at a time that is most convenient for us. Usually it will be answered
within a day or two.

a temper, are also committed to the Support-A-Skunk program. The
Support-A-Skunk program offers the opportunity to financially support
a specific skunk, somewhat like adopting a skunk from a distance.
No cleaning out skunk houses and litter boxes, feedings or visits
to the vet, but you do support the skunk and the shelter!
this way an important weight can be lifted!
