Ferret Aid Society

Ferret Aid Society

Most ferrets come to us either sick, malnourished or near death. We are a "no kill" shelter which means we never allow our ferrets to be put to sleep because they're old, if we're overcrowded or if they are diseased or ill and we can medically treat them. We rely on the donations of animal lovers to keep us running, and you're always welcome to adopt one of our babies.

The shelter is run on a volunteer basis and has no paid employees. We don't get any outside funding, even though we are a registered "not for profit" organization.

Our shelter officially opened it's doors to ferrets in Oct 1996. Lucky was our first successful rescue ferret. He came from a local Animal Pound where he was only hours away from being killed. Lucky is now happily living in B.C. with his new owner.

We love and treat all the ferrets who come into our doors as if they were our own. It's hard sometimes to see them go, but the good part of it is that we always know that they are going into a loving home with people who will love them as much as we did.
