Our shelter sometimes takes in ferrets that cannot be adopted for medical or behavioural reasons. Because we are a “no-kill” shelter, we will seek out alternative placement for these special ferrets in a foster home. These ferrets are still considered part of our shelter and their medical needs are met with full monetary support by the shelter. Please consider helping us provide ongoing support and care for these wonderful critters with a donation or by applying to become a foster parent to one of our needy ferrets.
I stopped at Petsmart yesterday to pick up more Ferretone and well walked out with a heck of a lot more then ferretone. They had this great playground with a ball and tubes, etc. so had to buy that. Then I saw the tubes and thought they needed some more tubes to run in so bought those. Then I saw some great toys that I thought the boys would like and bought those. So I went there for just a bottle of Ferretone and walked out with $142 worth of ferret stuff. Can you tell I’ve missed having ferrets? Anyways, brought everything home and got it all set up. Elvis and Hardy could have cared a less. They looked at the stuff and looked at me like whatever. Boon and Dork on the other hand had a great time. Boon loves the playground. He spent most of his time going in and out of the tubes and funnels. Dork had a great time checking out the new toys and playing with those. Thanks again for letting me foster these guys. I don’t know who is having more fun – me or them.
Want to become a foster parent? Read this before contacting the shelter.
We are always looking for foster parents. Since ferrets are very unique animals with their own complexities, foster parents need to know a great deal about ferrets. It would be a good idea to purchase a book called “Ferrets for Dummies” before you consider applying to become a foster parent.
Our foster parents must be very special people as our ferrets require special care. Most of the ferrets who require a foster parent have a medical issue of some sort. Most of our foster ferrets are looking for a permanent life-long foster home. On occasion we do look for short term foster homes as well (1-4 months).
In order to apply to be a foster parent, you must be able to comply with the following:
