Wish List: Ferret people who want to adopt a pair of ferrets. I have 3 pairs of ferrets. Donations to vet bill. I have one ferret with severe skin problems who despite test after test we have been unable to figure out the problem and more tests are needed. We always need old towels and sweat shirts, Ferretone, Nutrical, A/D can food, pedilyte & large feeding syringes. The ferrets can always use toys, new kitty beds, and any kind of ferret treats.

Pennsylvania Ferret Rescue Association (3 branches)

PFRA Sponsorship Program: Anyone wishing to help the shelter ferrets can sponsor cages. For a donation of $60 or more, their cage is sponsored for six months (monthly donations accepted in any amount). In return, a certificate of appreciation will be sent to the sponsor, and their name will be displayed on the cage for as long as their sponsorship lasts. Sponsors can also receive updates on the ferrets housed in "their" cage if they so desire. The donation goes toward the PFRA medical fund, which covers the shelter ferrets' medical (preventative and treatment) costs.
