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.

Larry

 
 
  Larry
 
 
Larry came with Curly and Mo but honestly, he seems to prefer the single ferret life. We have successfully mixed him with our Pansy foster group but not without complaints. Larry has great weight and a beautiful coat. He loves people and other pets, as long as they are not ferrets. We'll see if his position on chums changes but for now, we consider him better off as a single furkid.

Tristan

 
 
  Tristan
 
 
This little fuzzy may be deaf but that doesn't slow him down! He has discovered the joys of the rice box and is ever exploring his environment. We don't have much of a story on him but he seems to be curious about others ferrets and wants to play, he just hasn't figured out how. Not at all aggressive with people or other ferrets, cheap on the kisses though :( Would be a great single or a nice addition to a gently business.

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.

  Tata (aka Sadie)
 
 
This shy little princess has been a kept as a single and is curious but a little unsure of other ferrets. She's not much for playing but does like the rice box. She's a GREAT climber and therefore loves to explore everything and anything. Would make a very sweet single.

  Isabella (aka Isobel)
 
 
Just a sweet girl, who remains active but can get a bit overwhelmed among more dominant ferrets. Seems to have found a loving, permanent foster home.

Halo

 
 
  Halo
 
 
Someone clearly forgot to tell Halo she is supposed to be senior. She runs, she plays, she get super silly at the smallest provocation and if you've ever tried to photograph her, good luck!! She simply doesn't sit still long enough. So far, she seems to get on with other pansy fosters and so is available as a permanent foster with other fuzzbutts.

Someone clearly forgot to tell him he is supposed to be senior. He runs, plays, and he is silly!!! at the smallest provocation and if you've ever tried to photograph him, good luck!! He doesn't sit still long enough. Diablo is pretty bossy with new friends and gets along well with furkids like Bubbles and Tristan. Is available with other ferrets or into an existing ferret business.

Jackie and Vicky are fun, soft and sweet. Vicky can be a nervous nipper and her silly cagemate Jackie is quite the opposite, being bold and playful. At this time, these girls stay together. B.

Capucine

 
 
  Capucine
 
 
Capucine is a young playful ferret, very pretty and energetic, but don't let that beautiful face lure you into trying to kiss her! She would like to be a cosmetic surgeon and redesign noses (lips too!). When Capucine first arrived, she bit and drew blood on everybody she met. Now she has learned that keeping her teeth in her mouth means treats of Ferretone, but she'll still go for your face if she gets a chance. She is very happy in a big group that keeps her in check and puts her back in her place when she gets too big for her britches! I love her anyway. She has character. She's the annoying baby sister to the other seven in my main group.

Oliver

 
Fiona

 
 
  Oliver
 
  Fiona
 
 
Adopted and then re-surrendered Oliver has lost some of his trust in people - he doesn't cope with change or upheaval easily. This sweet boy is very attached to Fiona and the two must remain together. We are working on giving Oliver extra love and attention so he reverts to his playful, active self.

Mia

 
 
  Mia
 
 
Mia is in a Quebec foster home. Mia loves to her rice box and likes to chase the household cats. She would probably appreciate the company of other ferrets since she lost her brother Alex last May but due to her age she may be difficult to find an adoptive home for. Mia loves pocket hammocks but is very particular about her bedding - she likes it clean and pristine which makes it very difficult for her foster Mom to keep up with the laundry since Mia doesn't own many pocket hammocks.

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.

BAM!

 
 
  BAM!
 
 
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.

Rascal came to us with her pal Dr. Xavier who has since earned his wings. She is currently hanging out with Oscar and Jazzy and has been working on her nipping issues and showing some improvement. This little girls loves to be out of her cage and exploring and given time and patience would integrate well into another a small business.

  Blodwyn-Amelia
 
 
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. Not terribly fond of other ferrets she startles easily but is courageous in defending her ground. Prefers to be on her own or snuggled in with some Oliver and Pez.

Cinnamon has recurring tummy troubles and stops eating on his own - he will not be available for adoption until we get to the bottom of his issues. Despite everything Cinnamon is a sweet and inquisitive little guy - loves out of cage time but is clearly missing his friends from his previous home.
