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.

THERE IS A SMALL ADOPTION FEE FOR EACH FERRET 

​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).

CORVID 19 UPDATE

The rescue is currently offering limited rehoming services during the lockdown. Rehoming appointments are assessed on a case by case basis to keep contact to a minimum. We will therefore prioritise enquiries from people who do not have existing ferrets that will need to meet prospective new ones and those that have their cage set up ready to receive ferrets. Each appointment is ninety minutes, to ensure that there is no cross over between visitors. Masks must be worn in all indoor areas and social distancing measures apply. Appointments will be available on a first come first serve basis. Please keep following us on social media to keep up to date with the latest updates!.

Please send any questions via the page messenger or email littlepawsferretrescue@gmail.com and our team will respond as quickly as possible!

 

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and look forward to seeing you as soon as the restrictions are lifted.

Ferrets Available for Adoption

Last updated 25th March 2021

Ferne

Ferne is a neutered jill who was found in Lumley and taken to Cestria Vets. They contacted the rescue for help and She is our longest standing resident.

Ferne is a solo ferret as she does not like other ferrets. She can also be a little unpredictable especially with men. She can give a nip and this puts off potential rehomers. Once she settles in and feels comfortable she will relax and become friendlier. 

If you think you can offer Ferne an understanding forever home then please arrange a visit to meet this stunning little lady.
