finding ferrets their forever homeS

Blue Ridge Ferret Rescue is a non-profit, no-kill organization that works to care and find homes for surrendered ferrets to those looking to rescue these beautiful animals.

Need to Rehome a Ferret? Submit a Surrender Form and learn about our Adoption Assistance Program while we are temporarily closed!



Blue Ridge Ferret Rescue

We are a private-run rescue within our home and are a non-profit and receive help from donations and the community. BRFR is a no-kill organization and a proud member of AFA and happy to spread the awareness and education about these beautiful animals and help those new ferret owners with their recently added family member.

Any ferret that will be coming into our hands will need to have a form filled out beforehand, or we will not be able to take them. Rescue space will also play a part, if we are able to take a ferret in. There is an adoption process for every adoption under BRFR, and the necessary forms and information will need to be provided before being able to proceed in the adoption process.

Note: Please do not show up without a scheduled appointment. Due to us running this out of our home, we ask that you respect our privacy and personal lives. All appointments need to be scheduled at least a day in advance. To schedule an appointment, please contact us by the contact form, email or text.

Amazing experience!

Quick responses and very well taken-care of ferrets! I got my new roomate Piper and shes the cutest thing! Very healthy and playful, the caretaker was also very kind and helpful and even gave me pointers as to what to feed her! Definitely willing to adopt from again!

Before submitting a question, see if it is answered below in our FAQ!

What if I find a ferret outside?

First, bring it in and check for injuries and fleas and then post on social media groups in your area to see if you can find the owner. At times, we cannot take the ferret in, we can also assist in finding the owner or a new home for it.

I am interested in adopting, but you have none available?

We encourage you to keep an eye on our website and social to see when the next available ferret will come in!

What payment types do you take?

We do cash, PayPal, Zelle, Venmo. We are currently looking into adding Square Magstripe for card payments this year.

Can I get a photo with my new ferret?

Yes! This is something we encourage and love to do. Just ask day of adoption and we can take a few for you.
