Is Rescue breed specific? Please explain either way: no
Do you neuter all animals before leaving for forever homes where applicable? Please explain either way:
Yes, as long as they are of suitable age – kits and the very old are exempted, but kits are required by our adoption contract to be neutered once they attain suitable age and the neutering cost is covered by the donation expected.
Do you always home check? Yes
If applicable do you always vaccinate?: Yes
If applicable do you always worm/flea treat: Yes
If applicable do you microchip?: If neutered
Do you provide insurance when rehoming to new owners?: No
Will you always take the animal back no matter what? If not please explain under what circumstances etc:
It is a condition of our adoption contract that the ferret(s) must be returned to our care if the adoptive owner can no longer care for them for whatever reason.
Rough ‘donation’ guide per animal, please also explain what this involves:
£50 per ferret – covers the cost of neutering and microchipping – a “voucher” is issued if the ferret has not attained a suitable age for neutering and we then arrange the operation once that age is reached. We provide follow up advice and if necessary, training, (owner as well as ferret!) for life.
