The Ferret Rescue & Education Society (FRES) is a non-profit, charitable organization that was started by a group of devoted ferret owners in the Calgary area who recognized the need for a locally based rescue dedicated to ferrets. Since 2002, FRES has been adopting ferrets out to loving homes throughout Alberta, BC and Saskatchewan.
Since 2002, nearly 500 ferrets have walked through FRES’s doors. Rather than housing all foster ferrets in a shelter, FRES relies on volunteer foster homes to provide homes to individual ferrets. Our committed volunteers assist FRES in its goal to find a permanent home for all of the ferrets surrendered to us. FRES provides all necessary supplies and veterinary care, and if necessary, rehabilitation for all abused, unwanted, and abandoned ferrets regardless of their health status.
EDUCATION: Being the sole ferret rescue organization in Calgary and a trusted resource on these special pets, FRES places a high priority on responsible pet ownership through EDUCATION. Through partnerships with Calgary organizations and businesses, FRES provides regular education sessions to a wide variety of cohorts throughout our city.
CONSULTATION: FRES is often consulted by current and potential ferret owners who are in need of information, resources or support.
SOCIAL EVENTS: FRES organizes and executes several social functions throughout the year, ranging from a pledged walk-a-thon to ferret-inspired Halloween, beach and Christmas parties. These events are a fantastic way for FRES members to interact and for those who are considering the addition of a ferret or two into their home to learn more about ferrets from other ferret owners and the ferrets themselves.
FRES does not have a physical shelter, but instead relies on volunteer foster homes to provide homes to individual ferrets.
FRES regularly holds information sessions throughout Calgary and the surrounding area. Interested individuals can meet particular foster ferrets at this time. Foster ferrets are also featured at large-scale events such as the Calgary Pet Expo. All events are listed on our website at www.ferrets.ca.
Individuals who have successfully completed the adoption process can also meet several ferrets prior to adopting.
