|Pair of ferrets
We prefer our ferrets to be re-homed in pairs and offer a reduced adoption fee of £20.00 per pair.
We also offer a service to have your rescue ferret vaccinated against distemper. This is an additional service which costs £5.00 on top of the standard adoption fee.
If you would like your ferret neutering this is an additional service which will cost £30.00 extra per ferret – this fee is to be paid in full before the ferret is adopted.
We also offer a service to have your rescue ferret microchipped. If your ferret is lost or stolen and is taken in by any animal rescue centre or vet, then your ferret will be scanned and returned to you in a very short space of time. This service costs £15.00 on top of the standard adoption fee.
These costs do not take into account the feeding, loving care and attention the ferrets have had during their stay at the animal centre. Are you aware that ferrets can easily become bored and need regular handling, toys for stimulation and a good and balanced diet to live a healthy and happy life? (The centre ferrets are fed on James Wellbeloved Ferret)
Conditions of adoption
We are looking for life-long, permanent homes for our rabbits and we need to be sure you can provide such a home. This means we have to ask questions about your personal circumstances, including your ability to meet routine and emergency vet bills, which will become solely your responsibility following adoption.
Ideally all members of the household must come to the animal centre before a ferret can be reserved for you. If this is not possible we at least ask for the primary carer of the ferret to visit the centre. We also require permission from the property owner where the ferret will live. We will normally "hold" the ferret of your choice for 48 hours, this will allow everyone to come along and agree to the new addition.
A home checker will need to visit you at home before you can adopt a ferret.
We recommend that ferrets are kept as indoor pets or in ferret courts and modified out buildings. However as a minimum requirement we do not adopt ferrets out into hutches less than 4 foot in length.
We only adopt ferrets as family pets and not for breeding or working purposes.
We advise that entire female ferrets are brought out of season or they can become terminally ill. Alternatively you can can neuter female ferrets to stop them coming into season. There are also other ways to bring a female ferret out of season, please speak to your vet for further advise.
We do encourage that ferrets are kept in pairs or in groups.
We may arrange to do a post adoption visit to see how your new ferret is settling in.
