The adoption fee for a single ferret is $150 while the adoption fee for a bonded pair is $200. Bonded pairs will often mourn the loss of their friend if separated.
TERMS & CONDITIONS, CONTRACT AND PLACEMENT APPLICATION
It’s important to read the following instructions to ensure that your application can be received and processed in a timely manner.
It’s very important to us that you are matched with the ferret(s) that most easily fit into your lifestyle and experience with this wonderful fur-child! It is also vital that the adopted ferret is matched with his or her best family. Why? All rescued ferrets have lost their human family at least once. Some have lost more than one family! This causes extensive stress to the ferret – a living being that bonds to its human family so deeply that significant depression ensues upon surrender to a shelter. In some cases, this depression can cause premature death, but in all cases it will cause tremendous stress. We work so hard to confirm a forever-family for adoption because we care so much.
The Five Points Ferret Refuge (hereinafter referred to as FPFR) Adoption Agreement is a legally binding contract. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age to adopt. If you are under 18, please have the application filled out by the person who will be signing the contract.
Please note: We are very hesitant to place ferrets in homes with children under the age of 8. This is for the health and safety of both the ferrets and the children.
We automatically reject any application with false or misleading information.
Because many people do rush into ferret ownership, FPFR wants to make sure that the decision that you have made is the right one, for both you and the ferret.
