Chance Ferret Rescue
a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Private
|For many of the ferrets who find
their way here, the Last Chance Ferret Rescue really is their last chance.
These animals suffer from illness or old age, and are frequently just a heartbeat
away from being left to die.
|All too often their
owners are unwilling to spend the money necessary to provide them with
the treatment they need — treatment
that could easily save their lives, and give them a chance to recover.
At the Last Chance Ferret Rescue, they receive the medical attention they need,
and a place to live out their days in dignity, safety and happiness. Most of these ferrets
become permanent residents, as their infirmities make them unadoptable, because of the
costs involved with their treatments or the additional attention they require.
Many other ferrets come in with behavior problems, either through
improper training and handling, or caused by abuse or neglect. Through patience, care and
love, these animals learn to adapt, and many quickly become suitable for adoption.
|The residents of the Last Chance Ferret Rescue range in ages from a few
weeks, to 10+ years old. Some are breeder ferrets, with a long and distinguished pedigree;
others are pet store ferrets, bred in ferret mills. It doesn't matter: All are
welcome here, for as long as necessary.
Adopting a Ferret
If youve ever considered being owned by a ferret (or two, or
), consider adoption. It costs less than a ferret from a pet store or breeder,
and youll be offering a home to an animal whos truly deserving of all the love
and affection you have to offer.
An all-too-familiar example
of the condition many ferrets are in when they arrive at the Last Chance Ferret Rescue.
At the Last Chance Ferret Rescue, we dont adopt to just anyone:
People who want to adopt a ferret from us must pass a stringent screening process, to make
sure theyre able and willing to offer the same level of love and care we provide to
our furry friends.
But once you pass the screening, adoption is inexpensive and relatively
painless. And we provide you with any education and support you need, whenever you need
it, to make sure both you and your new friend remain happy for years to come.
At any given time, there are usually several adoptable ferrets
available, of various ages and colors. Call Diane Bodofsky, at
or drop her a note by
email. Shell be happy to
answer any questions you have, and let you know whos ready for a new home.
The Last Chance Ferret Rescue: Very often,
were the last, best chance for your furry friends.
