Ferret Haven By The Sea is a non-profit no-kill animal shelter
which is dedicated to helping ferrets, and educating the public
in the proper care and treatment of ferrets. We take in lost,
unclaimed, or owner-released ferrets and place them in homes.
If the ferret is sick, veterinary care is provided before adoption.
All ferrets are current on their distemper shots. If a ferrets'
health or age does not allow for adoption, we care for that ferret
until its natural death. We NEVER put a ferret to sleep because
we could not find him/her a home.
For a kit (up to 9 months old) the adoption fee is $80.00, for
adult ferrets the adoption fee is $60.00, and for an older ferret
the adoption fee is $40.00. In some cases where a pair can not
be separated, the fee is $90.00.
There is a mandatory owner-release fee of $25. The release fee,
in conjunction with completing the release form is to cover the
cost of vaccinations and veterinary care for the ferret.
