Can you sponsor one of these ferrets and help us pay for their medical care? Depending on the problem and number of vet visits needed, each Special Needs ferret can cost us up to $1500 per year. If you can help with all or part of the expenses for one of these ferrets, please Contact Us . Thank you.

Bubbles

 
 
  Bubbles
 
 
This poor guy ended up at a rescue in Montreal, severely malnourished, weak and dehydrated. Thanks to their TLC and intervention, he now looks fantastic. He loves his rice box, playing with people but is still a bit disfunctional when playing nicely with other fosters. His only issue is nipping for attention or play. For this reason, he will only be available to experienced owners.

Nymph

 
 
  Nymph
 
 
Lovely exuberant playful little baby girl; Nymph's paws are spring loaded she leaps with all four feet in the air and is inclined to launch herself at you to catch your attention. She loves to play and run and is particularly fond of chasing balls. This little bundle of joy needs a home where she can get lots of attention and play time and has lots of space to run and explore. Nymph has been playing with the new baby ferret in the house and has adopted her raw diet with a great deal of enthusiasm. She does need her raw food feedings in cage though since she is inclined to stash away a sanck for later. Her confidence around other ferrets has improved considerably but she is still not a good candidate for addition into an aggressive business.

  Lilly
 
  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.

Brave little girl was found wandering alone on the streets of Gatineau - she is completely blind but was gamely trying to find her way to safety. Blodwyn-Amelia is very protective of her food and prefers not to share a dish but she has integrated well into our quiet, gentle group where she sometimes enjoys nap in warm ferret piles. She has taken a particular shine to Yahtzee - she stalks him with dedicated perseverance despite his occasional attempts to escape her notice.

Fiona

 
BAM!

 
 
  Fiona
 
  BAM!
 
 
Fiona is full of energy, she runs, climbs, leaps and wrestles with the big boys. This little girl plays aggressively and is not well matched for a home with timid, sick or elderly ferrets. Nor does she do well with other females...She HAS to be the BOSS. Fiona is much adored by Oliver so the two must stay together. BAM! (previously known as Bambam) spent a good deal of his young life confined to a cage and as a result he becomes easily distressed in confined for significant periods of time. BAM! is not a dog lover. This handsome boy needs a home where he is mostly free roam and he will get lots of attention. He can be aggressive with some ferrets but has integrated himself nicely into a group here. BAM! is an accomplished climber - heights do not defeat him and he takes particular delight in pushing things off any surface he can reach and watching them crash to the floor - he needs special supervision now since he is beginning to go blind but doesn't want to stop climbing.

Weasel

 
 
  Weasel
 
 
Sweet and active little girl - surrendered with her brother Badger who has since passed away. Weasel is subject to some tummy troubles and benefits greatly from her duck soup with pumpkin. She is a slow eater and can be bullied out of her favourite Bandit treats so needs someone to keep an eye out for her. Since losing Badger she has bonded with with some of the other girls at the "retirement house" and will remain as a permanent resident to avoid any further upset in her life.
