Adoption Interest

Thanks for your interest in learning about the ferrets in our care & our adoption process.  
We are happy that you have decided to adopt a ferret.

Ferret adoption is a wonderful way to provide a ferret a second chance and caring environment.  Most ferrets arrive at shelters because the owner had to move, could no longer afford the care required, had a death in the family, or simply chose to give up the responsibly of being a caregiver for their ferret. 

It is vital that before bringing home a ferret, you make sure you have considered the full impact of your decision.  Ferret adoption can be an enriching experience, and is a big decision. 

Please review the following list of requirements. 
If you feel you meet these, please complete the digital adoption application for consideration.

Our requirements are:

  • Applicant must be adopting the ferret for himself or herself, as a pet. We will NOT adopt out animals as gifts for others.
  • You must live within 30 miles of Roanoke.
  • The household the ferret is going to live at must be non-smoking.
  • The person adopting must be at least 21 years old & no children in the home is under the age of 8.
  • You must have reliable transportation.
  • You must be employed full time.  Ferret food & wellness care is expensive.
  • You must agree to take full responsibility for the ferret, including daily care (fresh food and water and exercise), annual shots, vet care when needed, and ensure a safe environment.
  • If you rent, you must provide documentation from your landlord stating you are allowed to have ferrets.

** Please note that while all applications will be given the same consideration but not all will be approved.
