Little Paws Ferret Rescue

You can make a difference 


Welcome to Little Paws Ferret Rescue

Our organisation is dedicated to rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of abandoned and unwanted ferrets in Sunderland and South Tyneside.
Little Paws Ferret Rescue have a number of ferrets available for adoption (for more details click Adoptions). Our ferrets are neutered, microchipped and vaccinated unless they have a medical reason not to do so.
We aim to educate the public and potential owners, about how ferrets make fantastic pets, and how best to look after them. We provide activities aimed at informing, advising, educating and enabling people to develop their knowledge of ferrets.
Little Paws Ferret Rescue is a charity that organise group walks, shows, events and fundraising activities to raise the required funds to allow us to rescue and rehome.
Ferret of the Month
Rhubarb and Custard
Rhubarb and Custard are back up for adoption due to no fault of their own. They need to find an owner who will work with Rhubarb to gain his trust. This home must be able to offer them security and must have ferret experience as Rhubarb is a little harder work.


  • Donations of small household items, animal related items for resale,  tombola, car boot sale, etc...

  • Occasionally we have raffles etc... buy tickets to win prizes.

  • Donations:                                                 Paypal/LittlePawsFerretRescue          www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/littlepawsferretrescue

  • Donate fleecy material including tops blankets, etc...

  • If you are crafty and have some sewing equipment then making hammocks is a great past time and we can use them or sell them to cover the overheads.

  • We are always in need of shavings, puppy pads, blue roll or kitchen roll, cleaning wipes, ferret biscuits, cat or ferret toys, etc...

  • Sharing posts for strays, ferrets needing homes, items for sale, etc... 

  • We will be looking for volunteers to help with the day to day tasks and ferret play times.

  • In the future we may also need foster homes for those needing a little more one to one.

  • Transport runs to collect or deliver both ferrets and donations.

Little Paws Ferret Rescue Monthly Walk 

We arrange a monthly ferret walk in various locations around the North East. Check out our Facebook page for details.


The walks are free. Members of North East Ferret Community meet for a social walk with ferrets to enjoy the great outdoors, promote ferrets as pets and meet new friends. We try and organise the walks where there are public amenities such as toilets and a place to get tea/coffee and sometimes cake!! 

Everyone welcome, just come along with your ferret (s) and join in. 

Little Paws Ferret Rescue Spring Show
