Our main focus at King’s Ferret Rescue is to rescue and rehabilitate ferrets that have been abandoned, abused, neglected, mistreated, etc. We rescue ferrets from all types of backgrounds... From those whose families simply do not have the time, energy, or finances to care for their ferret any longer, to those who come from horrible situations where intervention is required to save their life.
ADOPTING A FERRET
If you wish to adopt a ferret, we HIGHLY SUGGEST doing proper research first to ensure that a ferret is the right choice for you. We are happy to answer any questions you may have as well! We recommend a meet and greet, where the potential adopter, and their family, roommate, etc (everyone who lives in the home) come to meet the ferrets to see if there’s anyone they bond with, and to answer questions, observe interactions, etc. An adoption application must be filled out as well. An initial home check will be performed, to help the adopter find/assess/fix any potential hazards to the ferret(s) and assess purposed play/living area for the ferret. A veterinary reference is required the adoption process. We ask for a Veterinary reference to ensure that the chosen veterinarian is knowledgeable with treating ferrets.
King’s Ferret Rescue is comprised of the two founders, owners, and current sole caregivers, Ashley and Daniel King. We’ve been rescuing ferrets “unofficially” since 2011. We recently got out first home (August 2017) and started talking about making an “official” rescue. We reside in the state of New Mexico, where currently, there are essentially ZERO resources for ferrets or ferret owners.
We have a wonderful Veterinary team with a Primary Care Veterinarian that is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and kind when it comes to these little guys. Their clinic is open 24 hours a day, which allows for us to take ferrets at any hour if there is an emergency situation. If you would like the Vets information so that you may use them yourself, would like to make a donation, or have any kind of questions, please feel free to contact them with the following information.
