The newborn cubs were found by a local woman who noticed a cardboard box sitting next to a clothing donation bin.
The cubs estimated to be 10 days old were transported to the Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation and Educational Center in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.
Katherine Uhler, director of the center, said: “They came in at about 6 ounces each.
“There are five males, also known as dogs, and two girls known as vixens.
“We know they’re red foxes because even though they’re not red yet, they still have this little white tail.”
Katherine and a group of volunteers a the center are caring for the foxes, who came in healthy but dehydrated.
Katherine said: “We had to give them rabies vaccinations and feed them fox milk.
“We gave them Pedialyte fluids first then mixed a quart of Fox Valley formula which is designed specifically for baby wild foxes.
“We bottle feed them until they are a little bigger, then they’ll start feeding out of the bowl.
“When they’re finished feeding out of the bowl then we’ll start feeding them what they eat in the wild which is meat, and some vegetables and fruits.
It is costing the center more than one thousand dollars to care of the foxes - who will be in released back to the wild in July.
