Adoptable Ferrets

We strive to keep this updated but there may be more ferrets available than what is listed here.  Standard adoption fee is $65 for singles, $100 for pairs or trios (unless otherwise noted). Please review the Policies and Guidelines prior to contacting us. Ferrets for adoption are located in Spokane Valley. Note that some are marked as Not Yet Available and those require evaluations of health and temperament. All ferrets who arrive here are held for a minimum of 2 weeks before adoption is considered.   We do not adopt out unhealthy ferrets, bad biters, or those 6 years old and older. Strays will be kept for 30 days.  If no owner is located, then they will be considered abandoned and placed up for adoption unless not found healthy enough.

Beavis - will place with Garrett
Birthday:  August 2013
Gender: Male
Color: Black sable
Size: Large
Beavis loves cats.  His previous home had a cat best friend who he missed greatly the first week he was here.    Now he plays with Garrett and Swiper very well.  He has a great love of tubes for crawling and turning around in.  We will be rehoming him with Garret, they have so much fun together.  
 

 
Garrett (the ferret) - will place with Beavis
Birthday:  April 2013
Gender: Male
Color: Dark Champagne
Size: Large
Owner is in his first year of college and mom is severly allergic.  He has a huge fear of most ferrets but so far we have been successful in housing him with two very gentle ferrets.  Garrett looks to humans for most of his entertainment and really loves everyone.  We will be rehoming him with Beavis.  They have become fast friends.

Navi and Eywa
Owner unable to take with on a long move
Birthday:  2012
Gender: Females
Color: Roan sable with blaze/Albino
Size: Small to Medium
 
Both of these girls have never known hardship.  They were well taken care of but after a tramatic event in the owner's life, she was not able to take them back east with her on her sudden move.  The girls gained their name from the movie Avatar.  Both love being held but Eywa is fearless and will leap off of you.  Navi is more level headed.  They do well with other ferrets so long as they don't play too rough.  They do not enjoy our boarded ferret, Speckles, who is only 5 months old.  They will be rehomed together.
 

 
George
Birthday:  2012
Gender: Male
Color: Stunning sable roan
Size: Medium
George has been to two homes.  Both times with a pal named Dash, but Dash became aggressive and they are no longer friends. George is a rare one who loves to snuggle with people.  He is comfortable taking a nap in your lap when you watch TV.  He is very kind and loving to people but hates other ferrets.  He will go to a home without ferrets.

Tootsie
Birthday:  2011
Gender: Female
Color: Dark champagne
Size: Medium
Tootsie lost her cage mate last year and her owners fell on financial hardship after loosing 3 ferrets to cancer then their cat becoming very ill, costing them thousands.  They needed a break and felt Tootsie might be lonely.  But Toots is done with other ferrets.  She now hates them.  She does okay with cats and dogs.  She is not fond of being held but is a very safe ferrets.

Tabitha (previously no named stray) - Found at 12th and Perry in Spokane on May 28 and turned into animal control.  Transferred to rescue on June 1.  Available July 1.
Birthday:  2013
Gender: Female
Color: Champagne - cream with light brown legs - and a very faint stripe on her head
Size: Medium 
 
We do not have any background on her but we can tell a collar was on her for awhile.  She is no more than 2 years old.  Probably younger.  Great for people and finally relearning to play with ferrets.  Now she can be a bit rough with the others so we are pairing her with Cosmo.  She really loves to play.
 
Cosmo
Birthday:  (needs to be verified but he is about 3-4 years old)
Gender: Male
Color: Champagne (blonde sable)
Size: Large
 
Cosmo loves his food.  He is a big boy and gets around well.  Since Tabby is so rambuncious, he is a great partner for her.  He does not like being held but is used to being around older children. 

Julian and Ricky
Birthday:  2012
Gender: Males
Color: Redish Champagne and Silver roan blaze
Size: Large
These boys came from a home where they were loved but after a job loss and possible move to no pet home, their owner turned them in here to find their forever family.  Julian is a climber but Ricky is not into that.  You have to keep an eye on Julian or he will find a way over into the next room.  Both are very sweet but a bit timid.  They would do best in a quiet home.

Stevie
Birthday:  2013
Gender: Female
Color: Black sable
Size: Medium
Stevie came in with Julian and Ricky but is not bonded with them.  She is very fun and getting to know all the others here. She loves digging in our rice bin and in no time, her tail is all puffed up!  She is looking for a home with other ferrets.


MEDICAL HOLD
Mercury (previously no named stray) - Found in Hillyard and given to SCRAPS on August 4. Transferred to rescue August 5. Owner never came forward.
Birthday: Approx 2011 - possibly 3-4 years old
Gender: Male
Color: Dark Champagne - reddish brown sable
Size: Medium to Large
Surrendered individual took into animal control just before they closed. Mercury was thin, dehydrated, heavily infested with fleas, his right ear was a solid chunk of ear mite waste and blood then there was his tail with a two tumors. We were called to come get him and provide further medical treatment. He was given Revolution (for kittens) by SCRAPS which killed the fleas and ear mites. He slept for what seemed like days. Finally he was out of the stifling 90-100 degree heat. After he stabilized, about one week, we had the tumor on the end of his tail and the one a couple vertebrae down that was separating the bones there. He has a love for the wrong food (Meow Mix) but we are working on convincing him that there is better stuff out there. He will remain on hold until we can make sure he is medically healthy. Currently he is bonding closely with Chip.
Chip - on hold with Mercury
Birthday:  June 2011
Gender: Male
Color: Champagne (reddish brown sable)
Size: Medium
 
Chip came to us when his owner was involved in a bad breakup and found she was unable to provide the right care for him anymore.  He is very sweet and a perfect match with Mercury.  He will get up and play with the younger groups but mostly is a very calm ferret.  He needs to stabilize in weight before being considered for adoption.

 
Note there are more ferrets available for foster than adoption - See Permanent Resident page.  Foster ferrets are those who are older or with medical needs.  Veterinary care becomes the responsibility of the rescue along with food.  Although we appreciate it if the foster can provide food.  Our foster families must live fairly close to the rescue and keep in constant contact with us.  Cages will be provided along with most bedding.
