Dot, Smudge, Tips and Nibbler

This group of four were transferred to us by ABC Ferret Rescue in Maple Ridge when their founder was forced to shut the rescue down due to her health. They are all about 3-4 years old.

Smudge (Male, mostly white), Tips (Female, Chocolate with white toes) and Dot (Female, white with grey tail) are all very friendly. We suspect that Nibbler (Female, DEW) was handled very roughly at some point in her life as she is tense and fearful in new situations and may fear bite. Once she realizes that she is safe and does not need to defend herself, she is friendly and happy.

They fab four can be adopted together or can be split in to two as their foster mom has found that Nibbler and Dot have become quite closely bonded, and Tips and Smudge are also BFFs.















Given their age and unknown history, their adoptive homes must be aware of adrenal disease and willing to get annual supralorilen implants for their ferret to keep the condition under control should they notice symptoms presenting.

CANNOT BE ADOPTED AS SINGLES
WATCH FOR MEDICAL ISSUES 

FRIENDLY * 
*Nibbler has fear issues but we are working to overcome them





Peanut and Pistachio























These two sweet boys are approximately 1 year old. They are friendly, happy little fellows looking for a loving forever home. Both boys are social and enjoy attention.



They love stashing toys - rubber and stuffed - love their soupies and are willing to try a variety of foods so would likely take to raw eating fairly easily.

Both ferrets are fine with other animals and would likely take to a new ferret friend with proper introductions.

MUST BE ADOPTED AS A PAIR

Lola and Simon ***ADOPTION PENDING***



Lola and Simon are back in our care as their adopters ended up being too busy with new jobs.

Lola and Simon are a bonded pair that love each other a lot. Lola is a small female sable ferret 3-4 years old. Simon is a cinnamon male 1-2 years old.

They are very friendly with humans, and get along with some ferrets - so long as the ferrets are either not too overwhelming, or their adopter is willing to do a gradual introduction. Both are very sweet and playful, and Lola will be sure to point out any gaps in ferret-proofing - she can scale ferret gates in SECONDS - a very impressive feat!


LOLA IS GOOD WITH OTHER ANIMALS

SIMON IS GOOD WITH OTHER FERRETS 

MUST BE ADOPTED TOGETHER/ CANNOT BE SEPARATED

SIMON DOES NOT LIKE CATS

ADOPTED - Twix and Skittles (ongoing rehabilitation)

Twix is a 6-8 month old female, and Skittles is approx 1.5 years old. They came in distressingly thin and extremely frightened of people. They are gaining weight and becoming more trusting - their foster home is working hard to help them get over their fear of humans and their habit of fear biting, and then will start to work on nip training. If all goes well, this pair will be available to the right home in 2-3 months. The home must be willing to continue to work with them on their behaviour using positive reinforcement and training techniques only.

ADOPTED - Panda and Zoomies

A pair of females - approximately 8-10 months old. These girls are full of energy and curiosity, and would love a home to give them oodles of attention and, above all, play time! They are good with other ferrets and have lived with kids in the past. As they are still young, they may be a little grabby at times when they are really excited, but are otherwise very well behaved. They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.

Jasper and Jaxon ***ADOPTION PENDING***

Jasper and Jaxon are a pair of very sweet 1.5 year old ferrets. They are good with other ferrets and love cuddles, kisses, gentle hugs and - of course - playing with their people. They are not nippy, even when they play. Jaxon - the larger of the two - is the cuddle bug of the pair and will sit with his people until he gets bored. Jasper is the more active of the pair - he wants to play play play! These two are good with other ferrets and would love a home that will give them the time and space to be as active as they love to be!

ADOPTED: Otto

Otto is a fun, friendly, healthy, even tempered little 1.5 year old male ferret. He loves to play with other ferrets and loves all people. Otto is active and really loves running through tunnels and hiding stuffed toys. He does not nip - even when playing - and is always willing to try new foods! He is currently loving his soupies and eats really well. Otto is visually impaired and though this does not slow him down at all, we need to be absolutely positive that the other ferret's at Otto's house accept him completely, and that all the human members of the house are extra careful not to step on him when he gets underfoot - for this reason, we feel that he would be best suited for a home without small children
