All adults are neutered before they are rehomed, and we ask anyone adopting kits to arrange for them to be neutered once they have matured, as we do not rehome ferrets for breeding.
If you feel you could offer some of our ferrets a forever home, please contact us.
We ask for a donation towards the rescue's vet, food and transport costs.
As from January 1st 2014, due to increased vet, food and general welfare bills, we are having to put up our adoption donations to £40 for a neutered ferret (to go with another), £80 for a pair, and kits under 5 months will be £25 for one, £50 for a pair.
If a ferret is going to go with another one, we like you to bring your ferret here so we can try them with their new friend so we have a good idea that it’s going to work.
We also like to home-check all new owners before agreeing to rehome any ferrets so as to help make sure their new home will be suitable and safe for them. (We have provided information on housing and ferret proofing your home to help you make sure you and your ferrets are safe).
ONYX, JET and OPAL come as a complete little family. Let's start with JET and OPAL. Jet is the dark polecat jill, about 12 weeks old, and Opal is her very little friend, about two weeks younger, and a silver-mitt, so not sisters. They were handed over, having been bought from a breeder in a car park!!
ONYX was a stray who came in in July, and I thought she was going to have to be rehomed as a single lady (she's 1-2 years old). She hated everyone I tried to mix her with, and my last try was Jet and Opal. She must've been waiting for them, as the chemistry was instant ?? it was as if they'd always been together, and I wouldn't dream of splitting them up now. They are a gorgeous threesome, but not "first time" ferrets.
HOLLY is an adorable sandy jill kit, about 4/5 months old. She was found running loose round a lake. She is living with Onyx, Jet and Opal and they all get on brilliantly. She's particularly close to Onyx, and I would be happy to home them as a pair.
