We take great pride in our ability to find the best home for each of our ferrets. To accomplish this, our adoption process is more thorough than your average pet store or animal shelter.
Complete an Adoption Application from our website. All applicants must complete this prior to scheduling any appointments
We will contact applicants within one week to schedule an appointment. We recommend applicants do not purchase any supplies prior to this appointment.
You will come to the rescue for an initial interview and educational session. This appointment will last about an hour and you are welcome to bring other members of your household. We discuss what you know about ferret care, answer all your questions, and provide recommendations.
During this appointment, we determine what qualities in your new ferrets are the best fit for your household in terms of age, demeanor, activity level, etc.
Since you will not bring ferrets home after this initial appointment, you will have time to get your home ready for your upcoming adoption.
Once you have set up your cage and "ferret proofed" the play areas, you will submit photos for approval. If acceptable, Ferret Dreams will officially approve you for adoption.
If we do not have the perfect match for your household at the time of your approval, we will carefully examine our new intakes and waitlist to seek out potential ferrets to meet your needs. Sometimes this takes a few weeks but we promise it is worth the wait!
We schedule an appointment to meet potential ferrets at the rescue. If there is a connection, you will bring home your new companions that day! If it doesn't feel right, we will keep trying until we find the perfect fit.
