Adoptable Ferrets

One of our main goals is to try to help support the Ferret Shelters in our areas.  All Ferret Shelters in the Metropolitan NY, NJ and surrounding areas are welcome to apply for Sponsorship.  Currently, we 'officially' support 4 different no-kill ferret shelters.  We do, however, try to offer our support to all of the ferret shelters in our areas.  We do not support any "breeder-shelters" at this time.

From this page, you can click links to adoptable ferrets, see an overview of the shelters that we work with, and what we do, and see some of our sponsor ferrets in need. Please click away, and think about helping the ferrets today! Thanks!

A worthy note to make, is that our members also assist with a variety of other rescues and shelters, ranging from wild animals to reptiles! Although our main focus is ferrets, we hate to see any animal suffer!

  • MetroFerret will attempt to ensure that the shelter has sufficient supplies to care for their population of ferrets, both adoptable and permanent.  We have and will provide donations of Food, Vitamins, Litter, Hammocks and Toys, as well as items used to maintain cages, like carpet samples and linoleum.  When funds are available, MetroFerret will purchase Gift Certificates for the Shelters to purchase vaccinations and other supplies that they may need


  • MetroFerret will attempt to assist the shelters with veterinary care for the shelter residents.  Donations will be made directly to the shelter's veterinary hospital, either to pay down the existing bill, or so that the shelter may have additional ferrets treated. Should the shelter choose, they can submit the information on one particular ferret in need of costly medical care.  On a monthly basis, we will attempt to raise funds for that ferret's care


  • MetroFerret Members will volunteer to assist the Shelter Operators with the care of rescue of ferrets.  The level of volunteer work is determined by the shelter.  Should a shelter need help with cleaning cages, cleaning ears, clipping nails, and the like, volunteers will be scheduled.  Should a shelter need transportation or rescue assistance, volunteers will be scheduled.   


  • If you are interested in adopting a shelter ferret, we have an adoption application that you can complete and submit.  You can view some of our adoptable ferrets that are  in foster care  by clicking here
