How To adopt

First: Find out if a ferret is the right pet for you.  Ferrets have many possible personality quirks that make the more of a challenge than other domesticated pets.  The rewards, however, are worth it.  Research ferrets and be sure that they are for you.


Second: Fill out our Adoption Form and send it to us by e-mail, fax, or snail mail.


Third: After we check your references and decide whether or not to continue with the application process, we will schedule a home check to make sure that your home is suitable for ferrets and to assist in ferret-proofing.


Fourth: If you are approved, come to one of our outings, or schedule an appointment to meet individual ferrets so that they may decide if you are right for them. 


Please note: Ferrets are not for everyone.  One of the main reasons that so many end up in shelters is that people adopt ferrets because they are "so cute" and playful.  They do not realize the responsibility that goes along with being a ferret parent.  If you are not approved, please do not think that we have decided that you would not be a great pet owner.  Many times, it's just that we feel that you would be better off with a different type of pet considering your current situation.
