How The Ferret Shelters Directory Site Can Best Help You

This is a Directory of possible resources. The accuracy or dependibilty of registered businesses or individuals is not guaranteed.

Before surrendering your pet, adopting or supporting a facility, research the organization, individual or business.
Here are some suggestions for places were you can gain further information or begin to gain better insight into an organization or individual.
Do not use the listings for Medical Emergencies!
If you have a ferret health care emergency, contact a veterinarian! Some shelters may be able to provide vet referrals, but depending upon the shelter, it may take up to several days for a reply.
Every shelter operates differently.
Small, volunteer organizations do not operate the same as a multi-million dollar regional spca. Animal control facilities – hours, policies, and adoption/give-up procedures – differ from town to town. Be patient and understanding of limitations. Ask about open hours or visitation options, especially for shelters that are based in a private home. Small shelter operators usually have fulltime jobs outside their shelter work. Do not turn up on their doorstep if the facility after hours or without an appointment if the listing indicates that is how they operate.
If you are purchasing items or services from a listed business, follow the same care as making any online purchase.
We cannot verify the accuracy of any claims or offers. Shop a Ferret Shelter links are provided as a service to help support shelters. The Directory cannot authenticate products and services offered.
It is not the purpose of this site to rate or rank shelters.
Any issues or problems with the services provided by a shelter should be handled directly with the shelter or, in the event of serious issues, with local authorities. Should you see a problem you feel we should be aware of, please let us know through the Contact Us form. We cannot promise action on your behalf. However, repeated reports or serious complaints will monitored.
