How you can help us...

For wonderful ferret bedding, please click here to visit The Hidey Hole. Part of the proceeds of Lynn's sales benefit Ferret Waystation as well as several other wonderful ferret shelters. Lynn's bedding is wonderful and you will be amazed at the quality! We were fortunate to be chosen as "testers" for some of her products and the ferrets give Lynn's bedding 4 paws up!


The economy over the past couple of years has taken it's toll on a lot of families, their pets included. Adoptions have been few while surrenders have been many. Please open your home and hearts to a shelter pet in need!

Who We Are

We are a ferret rescue and shelter located in Central Texas, serving the Austin metro area including Travis, Hays, Williamson , Bell, and Bastrop Counties. In addition, we are proud to be a part of the Austin Animal Center's (formerly Town Lake Animal Center) Rescue Transfer Program. We also work with several animal control agenies in the Temple/Killeen area.
Often ferret owners find that they can no longer care for their ferret and the ferret is surrendered to the shelter. We also receive calls from individuals who find a stray ferret wandering in their yard. When this happens, every effort is made to find the ferret’s owner. If the owner cannot be located, the ferret is placed for adoption.

Our shelter ferrets are seen by our vet, updated with rabies and distemper vaccinations, and tested for ADV prior to being placed for adoption. We also assess each ferret’s behavior and personality to make sure they are placed in the best possible home. Our ferrets have already been homeless once, so we want to ensure the home we place them in is indeed their “forever home”. Click here to go to our shelter's website
