Rehoming Process

We have lots of ferrets needing homes below:

We recommend that you visit the rescue and meet the ferrets so that you can assess their temperament to make sure that they are the right fit for you and your home.

If you are adopting a ferret to join an existing ferret or business of ferrets then we highly recommend that you bring them along to meet prospective new friends and to check that they get along together.


​This fee contributes towards vaccination, microchip and neutering​ (The total cost to the rescue per ferret is over £100 minimum)

The adoption fee is:


£45 for one ferret to join an existing group (As a rule we do not rehome a ferret to live on it's own unless the ferret does not get on with other ferrets)

£40 per ferret when adopting multiple ferrets at the same time.

All of our ferrets are vaccinated against Canine Distemper, Microchipped and neutered (if they are too young for neuter then you will need to return them to the rescue for neuter when they are old enough).


Due to the current Corvid-19 crisis and social distancing measures we are not currently rehoming ferrets. We are unable to neuter or vaccinate which is essential before ferrets are rehomed. We will endeavour to keep the website up to date and as soon as we are able to get medical procedures back on track we will try to get rehoming visits booked in.


Our main priority is to keep our volunteers, visitors and the ferrets safe but we are looking forward to reopening and meeting you all.
