Thank you for your interest in adopting a ferret from the Pennsylvania
Ferret Rescue Association! Every year, thousands of ferrets are
turned in to shelters like ours because they were no longer wanted,
cared for, or loved. They need stable, loving homes, and we thank
you for wanting to provide this. Because many people do rush into
ferret ownership, we want to ensure that the decision you have made
to adopt a ferret is the right one, both for you and for the ferret.
This application is the first step in the adoption process from
the Pennsylvania Ferret Rescue Association. This application
is not short, but understand that we are very careful in our placement
of ferrets and want to be as thorough as we possibly can. Please
allow yourself 10-20 minutes to complete this application.
For more information about our approval process, please read the
Adoption Information page of this site.
If at any time you have questions about the adoption process, feel
free to contact the PFRA Director nearest your home. We thank you
again for your interest in ferret adoption from the Pennsylvania
Ferret Rescue Association!
Please note: We will only
adopt ferrets to homes within 150 miles of the adopting shelter
branch, and we do not ship. You must also be able to
visit the shelter at least one time before adoption. If you live
out of this range, or are unable to meet these requirements, please
visit The American
Ferret Association's Shelter List and
Ferret Central's Resource Database to locate the shelter nearest
