The ferrets at Kindness Matters Ferret Rescue are all free roam, meaning they are not kept in cages. They have five kinds of food available and have many toys and tubes to play with throughout the house.
On arrival, ferrets are treated for heartworms, fleas, ear mites and intestinal parasites. They receive any medical help needed, as well as two distemper vaccinations, a second worming treatment, and monthly flea and ear mite treatment.
Attached please find two surrender forms. Please print both forms, a set for each ferret. If possible, please print the USDA form on the back of the surrender page. If you can’t print the forms, please read over them before bringing the ferrets. (You may have to adjust the margins on the surrender form to get it to print correctly.)
Complete the surrender forms with as much information as you know. Leave anything blank that you don’t know. At the top of the USDA form, fill in your name, address and phone #. I will complete the rest.
Do NOT bathe the ferrets before bringing them. This will cause stress on top of the stress of changing homes. Plan to bring the cage and all supplies you have. Please try to clean the cage and supplies. Volunteers are limited here and there isn’t enough time to clean things coming in. Please transport the ferrets in a pet carrier and not in a box or loose. They MUST have air flow or they will overheat.
The rescue has taken in more ferrets than ever before. There is no money left for taking in more ferrets. When you surrender the ferrets, they really need to come with a donation for their care please.
