Ellie's Story...
Ellie is perhaps the sweetest and most gentle ferret we have seen here at the shelter. She is bonded with her friend Franklin. WHen she was admitted to the shelter, she was emaciated and near starved to death. However, she quickly recovered and gained her weight back. We are not sure what happened to Ellie in her early days, as she is a little wobbly on her feet, and has a vision impairment. Ellie and her buddy Franklin need a special, quiet, and loving home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ellie, a Chantilly Ferret was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Ferret for sale in Chantilly, or seeking a Ferret from a breeder in Chantilly.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chantilly already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chantilly breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Ferret breeders who help with Ferret rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chantilly paves the way for another one to be saved.
