Adoption

Thanks for your interest in learning about the ferrets in our care & our adoption process.  We are happy that you have decided to adopt a ferret.  
Ferret adoption is a wonderful way to provide a ferret a second chance and caring environment.  
Most ferrets arrive at shelters because the owner had to move, could no longer afford the care required, had a death in the family, or simply chose to give up the responsibly of being a caregiver for their ferret.

It is vital that before bringing home a ferret, you make sure you have considered the full impact of your decision.  Ferret adoption can be an enriching experience, and is a big decision. 

Our requirements are:
  • Applicant must be adopting the ferret for himself or herself, as a pet. We will NOT adopt out animals as gifts for others.
  • You must live within 30 miles of Roanoke.
  • The household the ferret is going to live at must be non-smoking.
  • The person adopting must be at least 18 years old & no children in the home is under the age of 8.
  • You must have reliable transportation.
  • You must be employed full time.  Ferret food & wellness care is expensive.
  • You must agree to take full responsibility for the ferret, including daily care (fresh food and water and exercise), annual shots, vet care when needed, and ensure a safe environment.
  • If you rent, you must provide documentation from your landlord stating you are allowed to have ferrets.

We require a home visit to ensure the environment is ferret friendly & safe prior to final adoption approval.


Sponsor-A-Ferret

We have several ferrets in our guardianship with special needs that do not qualify for placement in an adoptive home.
These guys remain in our hospice care & receive all the love and attention we can shower on them but their medical needs get expensive.
We truly appreciate any donations made in their honor! Thank you!

Surrendering 

Making the decision:
The decision to surrender your ferret can be a difficult one and the reasons for having to do so are very different for each individual faced with the task.
If you are thinking of surrendering your ferret, please contact us.   We will assist you with any questions you may have about the process.
 
There is a chance that after discussing your situation with you we may be able to provide you with some new options.

If you do decide to surrender:
We strive to make the transition as compassionate as possible for your ferret by... 

* Keeping cage mates together.  If you surrender your ferrets together they will be kept in the same foster home and adopted out together as a bonded pair/group.

* Ask that you bring your ferret's food so that if we need to change the food, we may do so slowly, reducing the chance of a ferret ulcer or other stomach/IBD issues.

* Have you bring your ferret's belongings & cage with them since these items are familiar to them.

* Collecting all previous Veterinarian care & vaccine records.  Over vaccinating a ferret can cause them to go into anaphylactic shock so having accurate vaccination history helps keep the ferret from having a reaction.
