Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We decided to start Bon Temps Ferret Rescue because of the need for another ferret rescue in Louisiana. These amazing animals always seem to get the short end of the deal when it comes to proper loving homes.
We are currently working on becoming a 501c3 non-profit as well as offering ferret education classes in the future at Petco located at 3215 Louisiana Ave. in Lafayette, LA.
We started this journey on June 1, 2013 and we are still learning the ropes but with the help of our friends the well educated fellow ferret owners as well as other rescues and a ton of love and compassion we are making great strides.

Our Adoption Process:
Adoption fees start at $70 for a single ferret. Our adoption process is easy and listed on our web site. However, to ensure a loving and stable forever home we interview prospective owners thoroughly and verify all information prior to adoption. Must be at least 21 years of age to adopt unless given permission by a parent or guardian.
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.
