My husband and I started the Oregon Ferret Shelter in 1985 to help homeless ferrets be relocated into new forever homes. We offer continual support and advice after the adoption. We are constantly updating our knowledge of the domestic ferret and pass it on to the public through educational outreaches, class room settings. We not only offer vet referrals, but boarding services while you are on vacation.
Come Meet our Pets:
We have outreaches the first of each month at PetSmart in Beaverton, Oregon and Petco on Glisan Street in Portland, OR. both noon to 3pm.

Our Adoption Process:
we require a signed adoption contract, verification from your landlord that you can have a ferret, a fee of $100 for a ferret up thru 3 years of age and $60 for 4 years and older. we only offer a spayed/neutered animal for adoption, current distemper shots and a free vet visit.
Why should you adopt?
small animals can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a small animal for sale or finding a small animal breeder, adopting a small animal from
an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a small animal to your family.
Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for
a small animal. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or
attention your small animal needs, and many other important things about how to
house and care for a small animal. There are different types of small animals
including Chinchilla, Degu, Ferret, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Hamster, Hedgehog, Mouse, Prairie Dog, Rat, Skunk, and Sugar Glider.
Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Please consider a rescue pet before you buy a pet from a breeder or pet store. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
