Shelter Mom: Diane Campbell

Ferret Guardian Rescue Haven (FGRH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose focus is the rescue, care, and placement of abused, neglected, and unwanted ferrets.  We are registered with the state of North Carolina as an animal shelter.

The shelter is currently based out of the home of Diane and Tony Campbell in Statesville, NC.  There are, on average, about 80 ferrets in the shelter at any one time.  The shelter has peaked at around 120 shelter ferrets in the past.

FGRH is currently funded by donations from the Triangle Area Ferret Lovers (TriFL) and through private donations.  These donations make up about 30% of the shelter's cost.  The remainder is funded by Mr. & Mrs. Campbell.

Please understand, we do not sell or ship ferrets!  We are not a breeder.  We simply attempt to nurse sick ferrets back to health and then find them an adoption home.
