Homeward Bound?

 

All our ferrets undergo a 2 week quarantine and a veterinary screening and treatment prior to being made available for adoption.  For animals in need of serious care, we treat all that is reasonable and possible as long as the animal is not suffering.  In order to meet these expectations, there are adoption fees.  Please contact us for our current fees.

 

Our vet, Dr.Dave MacDonald at Comox Valley Animal Hospital  in the Comox Valley and Royal Oak Veterinary Clinic in Victoria makes sure all our ferrets are happy and healthy!

 

As ferret care is never ending and veterinary care is expensive, donations are accepted and greatly appreciated through e-transfer, please use our email: info@vifert.ca or contact us for more information.

 

 

Adoption Process

 

At VIFERT, we use a three stage adoption process to ensure ferrets and families are well matched.  The first step is an application form, then telephone interview and finally a home visit.  With Covid-19 being an issue, we are able and willing to do a virtual visit in lieu of a home visit.  This process allows us to gauge ferret knowledge and help point out various issues that might come up with ferret ownership.

 

Adoption Guidelines

  • 19 years of age or older
  • References are required and will be contacted
  • You must provide the name of your current or potential veterinary clinic
  • If you rent, landlord will be contacted to ensure ferrets are permitted

 

So after all that, you are still interested in adopting a ferret?  Please fill out an Adoption & Fostering Application form.  We will keep your form on file and contact you if a ferret meeting your needs comes in.

 

Please contact us regarding current adoption fees.  There may be a discount for taking multiple, elderly or ferrets with special requirements.

 

 

 Foster-to-Adopt Program


Not sure if a ferret is right for you?  Try our Foster-to-Adopt program.  Take a ferret in for 30 days, along with guidance from our experts, some loaner equipment (cage, toys, etc) and see if a ferret is willing to live with you. 

 

 

Available for Adoption

 

If you think adopting any of these cute, adorable, friendly, playful, entertaining, sociable, endearing, life-enriching, wallet-emptying, key stealing, foot-warming, little bundles of joy would be the perfect addition to your life, may we suggest filling out an Adoption & Fostering application?

All of our rehomed ferrets go through a 2-week quarantine period in their own room, as a precaution, to assess for any potential diseases.  They are assessed for behavior and health issues, given a vet check, and then mixed with another group of ferrets for suitability.  After all that, they are ready to meet their adoring fans.

Introducing Jared (6yrs), Simon (6yrs) and Malloree (4-5yrs) 

 

 

 

 

 

Jared is 6 going on 2. Full of energy but is still a bit leary around new people.

Is quite happy to just run around and do his own thing.

Likes to get in trouble with his partner in mischief, Simon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Simon is 6yrs old but acts more like 60. He is a cuddle bug

and likes to snuggle. He would be ok giving kisses all day. His

eyesight isn't the greatest anymore . But that doesn't stop

him from running around with Jarod.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Miss Maloree is definitely the boss and the boys know it.

She is super sweet and gets along great with the other ferrets

in the home. She likes to cuddle or go digging in the dirt. 

Has a bit of balding on the tail.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Elsa & Anna (5 years old)

These two are likely to be kid friendly and have a vet appointment in a few days after their quarantine.

Elsa is a marked white that loves to climb, even people.  She acts like she is starved for attention.  She currently east kibble, but we are working on getting her to eat raw.

Anna is sable colored.  She is a little more timid, but still loves to be held and explore her surroundings.  She is taking to kibble a little better than Elsa.

Cinnamon & Sugar (2 years old)

 

Energetic but lovable These two bonded ferrets are a riot to have around. They love to play with each other or their humans and they are known to crawl into your laundry for a snooze. Both of them know how to use the litter box or a pee pad, but if left unsupervised they may have accidents. Both of them are food motivated. Both of them are healthy and ready to find their forever home.

 

Sugar is a marked white.  She is the more adventurous and will climb up your pant leg to come and say hello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cinnamon is a sable, is more calm and will wait politely for you to acknowledge him. He will then shower you in kisses.
