As Of....December 2013

[updated as changes come in...new list approx. every 6 months]

Please Note: This list was created to aid the members of the Ferret Mailing List (FML)--and everyone else who cares to use it--in finding ferret shelters around the world. The shelters listed here have asked to be listed and have supplied the information shown. Because of the magnitude of the task, Support Our Shelters is not able to verify the information that we receive and list here. However, we do verify the information as much as possible before we use the funds donated to us to support a specific shelter. We hope you will support at least one of the shelters on this list, and we encourage you to verify the shelter's information for yourself. Thank you for helping the ferrets!
The shelters are ordered alphabetically by location, starting with non-U.S. shelters.
If you have questions about the FML Shelter List
or want to be listed in the next FML Shelter List issue, please contact:

Support Our Shelters (S.O.S.) compiles this list and is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. EIN # 23-3062176 Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. You may request that a specific shelter receives your gift, or we will choose the neediest shelters for you. 501(c)3 NON-PROFIT SHELTERS -- See individual listings for more info. There are many good shelters which are not 501(c)3. ************************************************************************************************************ If You'd Like To Send A Gift To A Shelter You can encourage and support the wonderful people who work so hard for the ferrets we love by sending email greetings, donating ferret gifts or supplies, contributing to paying expenses, or volunteering hands-on help. Contributions may be made directly to their vets to cover bills. Or chose a shelter or more each month and send them $5 or $10. Or join the Buck-a-Month Club at www.SupportOurShelters.org FERRET SUPPLIES: If you want to mail supplies to shelters, you can order them from one of the catalog companies and have them shipped directly to the shelter instead of paying postage twice. Be sure to tell the company and the shelter what you are doing. Just a few are: Ferret Depot www.Ferretdepot.com 1-800-496-3335 Totally Ferret www.totallyferret.com 1-877-545-5462 Jeffers wwww.jefferspet.com Medical & General Care 1-800-JEFFERS Companions Choice Products Ltd. www.companionschoice.com (serves UK and Europe) It means so much to get that care package! ***********************************************************************************************************

We began in 1998. If we did not take them in regardless of age, health, or disposition, most would be euthanized. We receive calls from agencies in three counties, and currently house 75 to 80 little fuzzies. We work both on a local level, & on the internet, to better the care & lives of ferrets everywhere. We specialize in older & hospice babies here, as well as abused, mis-treated, abandoned & unwanted castoffs. Many here have health issues, and are on meds for life. Average age is 5 1/2, average number of adrenal ferrets on lupron is 34, average number of insulinomic ferrets is 14. There are several little ones with lymphoma here, as well. Many need special care. All have found a safe, loving place to live out the rest of their days in comfort & joy. Due to the fact that we stand by these sweethearts until the end, we do not adopt out to the general public. There are no adoption fees coming in. We are a 501(C)(3) not for profit organization, and donations to help the fuzzies are tax deductable to the fullest extent of the law. Anyone wishing to visit our facility, or come learn about ferrets, please call one of the phone numbers above for directions. Our little ones love visitors! Wish List Ideas: More volunteers, more sponsors, gift certificates to KV Vet Supply, Jeffers, The Ferret Depot , Ferret.com, or Walmart. Any money sent to our vets would be deeply appreciated. We are very grateful for any any help with the ongoing expense of lupron. Prayers too.
