Ferrets should
NOT be fed store cat foods. Are you prepared to pay twice as much for a quality ferret food? Yes No
Ferrets need annual visits to the vet for distemper and rabies boasters as well as an examination. Are you willing to pay $50.00 to $100.00 or more on annual visits?
Yes No
Are you and your family prepared to make a lifetime commitment to owning a ferret(s)? This includes lifestyle changes i.e. children going off to college, having a baby, moving to a new place. Ferrets live 7 to 10 years with proper medical care.
Yes No
If you cannot make a long term commitment to a young ferret, have you considered adopting an older ferret? (please read the next following paragraph)
Yes No
 

Please note that although we do not charge an adoption fee for our older ferrets, please do not think of these as "free pets". We waive our fee because it is understood that;
        a) these guys will most likely have only 2-3 years left to live, and
        b) these guys are also most likely to be facing expensive surgery within that time frame. No pet is ever free and an older
            ferret is no exception.
