UPDATE ON BROWARD FERRET RESCUE STATUS

After 19 years of running the only ferret rescue in South Florida, a family emergency has occurred that puts the Rescue in a position where we are no longer able to take in anymore surrendered ferrets. I must turn my attention to my family and  our needs. I will continue to adopt the ferrets that are still at the rescue until they get a home.   I will be able to  still assist with boarding your ferrets.
There have been some incredible volunteers and supporters in the Ferret Community, and we would like to Thank you all for your dedication to giving the wonderful critters a loving home. 

NEED TO SURRENDER A FERRET:

DO NOT JUST LET THEM GO FREE OUTSIDE. They are NOT able to survive in the wild. Contact your local shelter. 

DID YOU FIND A FERRET:

 If you found a ferret, please check the Found Ferret Page on this site.

WANT TO ADOPT:

Until the current ferrets at the rescue get a home, the rescue will continue with adopts.  CHECK OUT THE FERRETS ON PETFINDER.COM

Video on Ferrets 101- What to expect

Who hasn't walked into a pet store only to see an adorable ferret wanting to play with you. The Rescue sees many of these families as they surrender their ferret because they did not educate themselves on the ferrets needs and characteristics. 


This video from Animal Planet gives you an idea of what to expect.
