Ferret Surrender Procedure

Make absolutely sure you must give up this companion pet who has probably given you many fun times and a good part of his life?

Ten Things A Ferret Asks Of Its Humans:

1. My life is likely to last 6-9 years. Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that before you buy me.

2. Give me time to understand what you want from me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment.

You have your work, your entertainment and your friends. I have only you and your toes.

5. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I do not understand the words, I understand your voice when you are speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you trust me, I will never forget.

7. Remember before you punish me that I have jaws that could easily crush the bones of your hand, but I have chosen not to bite you that hard.

8. Before you scold me for being "uncooperative", "obstinate" or "sad", ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I am not getting the right attention or I am sick.

9. Take care of me when I get old; you too will grow old.

10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch it" or "Let it happen in my absence". Please never say, "Let the vet do it". Everything is easier for me if you are there.

Most people believe they are not spending enough time with their pets but a survey showed that the original pet owner provided better care and attention then a new owner.

Ferrets normally get along well with other animals and even though they are carnivorous they cannot fend for themselves in the wild and will become food for other animals or die of starvation if let go. Contrary to popular belief ferrets do not hate small children or babies if the same care and supervision is used for ferrets as you would with other domesticated animals.

We are a no kill non profit ferret shelter and rely on the kindness of other animal lovers for survival so we would really appreciate as large a donation as you can easily afford to help us pay for the care and maintenance of the pet you must surrender. Also, we must limit our ability to bring in ferrets to the immediate area of south jersey and Philadelphia please look to a local shelter in your area for assistance.

Unfortunately with the advent of ADV we must perform a saliva test to check for this deadly disease which is expensive and part of the surrender fee. We also get very little financial help from the public or the ferret community so most of the funding comes directly out of our pocket.

Our normal hours of business are generally from 7 to 11 AM and 1 to 3 PM on weekdays and 11 to 3 on Saturdays and the directions may be found below by clicking either Mapquest or Yahoo maps. If you can't make it during those hours please call 856-784-6789 to make other arrangements and it is wise to call before coming anyway as we may be involved in a rescue and are closed.



NOTE: The following items  will be needed upon surrendering your pet.


1   Medical Records
2   At least a weeks worth of food the ferret is currently eating.
3   Any ferret related items (cage.....) that is in good condition.


Surrender Fee of $50.00 to $75.00 per ferret



Please fill our the surrender form and submit it to us via email at or fill it out at our shelter.
