Ferret Association of Connecticut Animal shelter in Hartford, CT

FACT has been in operation since 1991. When we began, there was no other shelter for ferrets in New England. Now many more animal control and spcas will take in and adopt out ferrets, however, we offer ferrets and adopters specialized, extensive knowledge.

Additional adoption info

We require an in-person interview. Our application is intended to help guide the interview, so we can help make sure a ferret is the right pet for your family and discuss food and care requirements.
We have a standard adoption contract that states if for any reason the adopted ferret must be given up, it is returned to us.
Our standard adoption fee is $100. Pairs that must stay together are discounted.
Since nearly all ferrets sold locally came from pet stores and are already spayed/neutered, we do not get litters of babies into our shelter.
