WATCH: Local 4's 'All 4 Pets' special

Here's what you missed on Local 4's "All 4 Pets" special Wednesday.

Watch the full special above.

Meet a local family of animal lovers who welcomed a fox into their home.

See what he eats, where he sleeps, and how he gets along with his canine, feline and human siblings. Plus, learn the reason why the unusual adoption truly saved this special fox's life.

The organization that saved Axel is called Save A Fox, and they’re located in Minnesota. Owner Mikayla Raines just moved to a larger facility, so she can save more foxes, minks and other exotic animals.

For more information on how to support Save A Fox, go to: saveafox.org. Follow them on Instagram.
