In order to complete an adoption, you must complete an Adoption Application Form (Online Form , HTML Version, PDF Version ), review and sign our Adoption Contract (HTML Version, PDF Version) and pay the Adoption Fee for the Ferret(s). Our adoption fees range from $50 to $200 per ferret depending on their health, age and number of ferrets being adopted. Once we have received your application, we will contact you to set up an appointment to meet the ferret(s).

Important Notes:
1) We reserve the right to restrict adoptions to people living in the Ottawa/Gatineau area.
2) ALL ferrets in an adoptive home MUST have proof of a negative ADV test within the past year. Contact Us for more information.
3) We always visit the homes of adoptive families at least once to ensure they are safe for ferrets.
4 ) As a small non-profit group, we do not have paid staff or an actual shelter location.
5 ) In order to meet a foster ferret, you must call or email us to arrange an appointment with our foster families.
6 ) Our phone and e-mail are staffed by volunteers and it may take a few days for us to return your messages.

Atlantic Canada Applicants:
If you live in Atlantic Canada and are interested in adopting a ferret from the FRSO, please fill out our adoption application. These applications will be sent to our adoption coordinator in Nova Scotia who will contact you to make arrangements for a telephone interview and schedule a home visit. Transportation for ferrets to the East Coast will be arranged several times a year depending on demand and availability of volunteers for transporting ferrets.

Gladys has nicely integrated with the other fosters, she is loving to ferrets and humans. she's a quiet little girl, she sleeps allot but when awake loves to play, her favourite play time is in the rice box. Gladys is in an inseparable pair with her sister Estee. Estee is a sweet girl that can be bossy to some ferrets at first, but gets better as she knows them, she's a very nice girl and loves to be in human company.

These three darlings made their way to us after a death in their family - they have been together since they came home from the pet stores and we would prefer to keep them together if possible. Scooter the youngest is a bit less attached to his friends and may integrate well with another group of ferrets. This trio are inquisitive, playful and affectionate - they love lots of play time and don't much like cage time but hurt feelings can be smoothed over with a Bacon Bandit treat

Gizmo and Silver were surrendered together after Gizmo bit a family member and their owner became frightened about handling them. There has been no indication of biting behaviour since his arrival at the shelter except for his relentless pursuit of socks (doens't matter if they have toes in them). Both boys are energetic and playful and have shwon promise of integrating well with other ferrets with a little bit of work. Both are excellent climbers and craze human interaction - Gizmo in particular will race ahead of you to climb anything he can to look you right in the eye as though he is saying "Im here! Pay attention, play with me......"

Mild mannered and curious little boy - having trouble integrating into a larger group of ferrets largely because he just doesn't know how to stand up to the rougher guys. Really likes people and is easily bored in his cage (which results in some vigorous re-arranging of contents). Needs someone who lots of time and attention to give.

This precious pair are full of energy and ferrety mischief. Not the tidiest with the litter box (they like to roll it) but endlessly amusing and very sweet. Integrate well with other ferrets and pets.
