Adoptions

If you are interested in adopting, please email the rescue. Some questions will be asked of you. Some ferret information emails and an adoption application will be sent. We will speak with you on the phone and call your reference. We do a home visit to make sure everything is ferret proofed. Then we schedule a time for you and your family to come to the rescue to see about adopting.

If you already have a ferret, please know that not all ferrets want to be with another ferret. It is important to let your ferret choose a ferret. Not all ferrets get along and you don't want to just add another ferret into the household. There can be serious fighting and/or a lot of stress that can result in sickness.

Appointments are more than welcome to come see all the sweet furry faces looking for forever homes.

Is a Ferret Right for You and Your Family?
TIME - With a lifespan of around 7 years, can you provide 4 hours a day of interaction?
SPACE - Ferrets flourish as a free roam animal. Do you have dedicated areas you can ferret-proof? Creating a ferret friendly home means more interaction as you go about your daily activities in the home too!
MONEY - Ferrets aren't cheap to care for. Estimates place ferret care at a minimum of $500/year considering their food and medical needs.
POOP - Yep, we said it! All ferret owners understand this is an important category. Ferrets need food provided to them at all times, and it simply has to go somewhere. This is something you will have to deal with cleaning up on a daily basis, whether it be in the litter box or an accident somewhere.
