If You'd Like To Send A Gift To A Shelter

You can encourage and support the wonderful people who work so hard for the ferrets we love by sending e-mail greetings, donating ferret gifts or supplies, contributing to paying expenses, or volunteering hands-on help.

Contributions may be made directly to their vets to cover bills.

Or chose a shelter or more each month and send them $1, $2, $5 or $10.

FERRET SUPPLIES: If you want to mail supplies to shelters, you can order them from one of the catalog companies and have them shipped directly to the shelter instead of paying postage twice. Be sure to tell the company and the shelter what you are doing. Just a few are:
