This is a section that will hopefully connect ferrets who need a new home with people who are looking to adopt a ferret(s). I will also post listings for lost and found ferrets. If you are looking for a ferret, please consider adopting one from a shelter before purchasing one from a pet store. Most ferret shelters are over loaded and have plenty of wonderful ferrets to choose from.
To find a ferret shelter in your area, visit the following link: Ferret Shelter List and http://www.ferretcentral.org/orgs.html.
If you have a ferret and are no longer able to care for it, please do not "let it go in the wild." This will mean certain death for your ferret. Many of these unfortunate ferrets are found dead or wandering down the street at death's door, often suffering from starvation, dehydration and heat stroke. Ferrets are NOT wild animals and they cannot survive for more than a few days on their own.
If you can no longer care for your ferret, please contact the local Humane Society, find someone who will take your ferret and provide it with a good home, run an ad in the classifieds section of the newspaper, or contact a ferret shelter. Ferret shelters are filled with abused, neglected and unwanted ferrets. Whether you know it or not, your ferret has bonded with you and is very dependent on you for food, shelter and love. Please don't let your ferret down. Do the right thing and find your ferret a new loving home. There are many people out there who would love to have a ferret as a pet.
Hopefully, we will be able to connect lost ferrets with their owners and unwanted ferrets with loving homes. Perhaps we can take the load off of ferret shelters. If you are looking to give your ferret away, please be sure you are giving your ferret to a responsible owner. You should develop a list of questions to ask a perspective owner, and should make sure they can afford to pay for any medical bills and proper food and supplies. Be sure to fill them in on what ferret ownership is like, and let them know about your ferret's habits.
We at EverythingFerret.com are not involved with the actual adoption process, and are not responsible for any problems that may take place between parties. You are giving your ferret away to a new owner at your own risk, and you are accepting a new ferret into your home at your own risk. We are just providing listings to help connect people with ferrets who need a home. If you are under the age of 18, please do not post a request for a ferret.
To make posts more timely, I have set up a message board for "Ferrets Who Need Homes" and "Ferrets Wanted". Please visit the links below to add your post. Please put your city and state in the subject line and a contact e-mail address in your post.
