- Three Shires Ferret Rescue and Welfare
Three Shires Ferret Rescue & Welfare rescues and rehomes lost and unwanted ferrets in Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Bedfordshire, England.
Three Shires Ferret Rescue and Welfare came into being in 2007. Ferrets come in from Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire (hence the name Three Shires), usually via the RSPCA, although many un-neutered hobs (male) arrive from the general public in spring when the breeding season begins. Many unneutered males escape their sheds seeking to find a jill (female) to breed. Ferrets do not have a very good homing instinct and therefore they get easily lost. Consequently we provide a lost and found service primarily via our Facebook page. Those who cannot be re-united with their owners are rehomed.
We also accept unwanted ferrets for adoption.
All ferrets are neutered, distemper vaccinated and micro chipped before they leave Three Shires Ferret Rescue for their health and welfare.
