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.

  Pepsi
 
 
Surrendered as part of a threesome - Lilly and Pepsi have lost one of their friends and must stay together. Lilly is the little lady in the group and she could make the Energizer Bunny look lazy - this girl loves to run, explore, climb and dance - she is fearless and very inquisitive - a real ferret proofing challenge. Pepsi is calm and laid back he likes to play with his friends but is shy around new people and animals. He is the sensitive guy and doesn't like change.

Oscar

 
 
  Oscar
 
 
Oscar still has a lot of spunk, he can be loveable (he likes giving kisses on the lips!!) and cuddly but loves to run around when he's out of his cage, he plays really well with other ferrets, he likes to sleep with them. He can be a bit aggressive with cats and he's not too good at going in the litter boxes when he's out of the cage, but in the cage does a bit better. Sometimes misses and just goes beside it. Oscar has lost his companion Jazzy and we are trying to find him new ferret friends so he does not feel lonely.

  Burrow
 
  Mocha
 
 
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

  Dulce Vida a.k.a North
 
 
North is a little girl who had a rough beginning, she was called an extreme biter and was handled with oven mitts, she is not 100% sure of being picked up. She goes stiff when not properly handled. But she has gone a long way, she doesn't bites anymore.

Badger

 
Weasel

 
 
  Badger
 
  Weasel
 
 
Badger and Weasel are one of the sweetest pairs of ferrets ever. They adore out cage time and crave lots of human contact and interaction. Weasel is the more timid of the two and can be bullied out her Bandit treats - she eats slowly! Some confusion about litter boxes - these two seem to think they are a lovely place to sleep and as a result they poop just about anywhere else. Working on convincing them otherwise but these two need someone with LOTS of time and patience to lovingly work with them. The pair cannot be separated.
