Our Featured Pet...

Since all the ferrets here at FVF are special in their own right, we have found it impossible to feature just one. Please take a look at all our adoptable ferrets.


Who We Are

FVF has been sheltering and rehoming ferrets since 1995. We became a 501(c)-3 tax exempt public charity in 2005. We have always been NO KILL unlike many other "no kill' shelters we do not limeit intakes. We have never turned away a ferret and never will, no matter what. Ferrets not suitable for adoption because of age, veterinary needs or aggressive biting become permanent shelter residents and are loved and cared for until it is their time to go to the bridge. We only euthanize if it is the BEST THING WE CAN DO FOR THE FERRET TO END SUFFERING.

We are supported by donations and adoption fees. All donations, no matter how small, are deeply appreciated. Check out our current wish list at

Adopting a friend

Because we are 100% volunteer run, hours are by appointment only. The adoption process starts with a phone interview to make sure you have a realistic expectation of what sharing your home with a ferret will be like. At the end of the interview, if a ferret is right for you, we will set up a time for a play date where you will spend approx an hour with the available ferret(s) best suited to your home and experience levels. If your perfect ferret(s) are found at the play date, you pay the adoption fee and the process is completed. A follow up call is made 2-4 weeks later to make sure everything is going well.
Adoptions fees will be discussed during the phone interview since FVF offers package deals for senior or hard to place ferrets.
