Hi friends! Reef the fox here with your weekly Reef Report. 

From dolphins to lovable pets, the Florida Keys communities care about the animals that call this island chain home. And we engage in fundraisers to support the cause and their well-being. One such event coming up is a wine tasting to benefit adoptable pets. 

Known as Sips & Licks, patrons can enjoy a selection of wines for a $20 donation to benefit MarrVelous Pet Rescues on Tuesday, May 24 at 6 p.m. at 68 Silver Springs Drive, Key Largo (park on Rock Harbor behind Tower of Pizza and Meads AC). Adoptable pets will also be onsite. RSVP to 305-453-1315 or [email protected] You may also donate online. (Write in Note – Wine Tasting) Round up your friends and get your taste buds ready.

At Pawsitive Beginnings, we have a very special fundraiser coming up, and it’s a Zoom event. I will talk about it more next week, but if you want to take a look ahead of time you can go to and the event will pop right up for you. 

On to some fox news. Do you ever just sit and contemplate life? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how unfair it is that I don’t have my own room. I mean. I am the superstar around here and I deserve my own “dressing room,” so to speak. 

These other foxes just get to lie around and look cute all day but me, no, I have to keep the public happy on social media and in my weekly column here. It’s a lot of pressure, you know?

I need my beauty sleep to be able to come up with the creative wording to keep my audience captivated and engaged week after week. I mean the other night, Coral got a new bed? Coral? What did she do to deserve a new bed? I mean, mom didn’t say it was specifically for Coral. I think her exact words were “this is for everyone to share” but we all know what’s theirs is mine and what’s mine is mine so there. 

Anywho, that’s all for this week. Hope you enjoyed the deep dive into my thoughts. 

Until next time, Reef, over and out!
