Shelter closed to surrenders

Barb speaking:

After 15 years of running the Hide-E-Hole Ferret Rescue, I am retiring. I only have a few ferrets left to adopt out and I’m not taking in any more owner surrenders.

Please go to the Animal Rescue League in Pittsburgh on Hamilton Avenue. They vet their ferrets with the shelter vet, Dr. Robert Wagner (a local exotics vet) and do not automatically euthanize if the ferret is sick. I will be working with them (I hope) to educate people about ferrets. They have recently built a new facility and I am hopeful they will be able to care for local ferrets until someone else starts another ferret-only rescue.

I’m very conflicted about this since I love ferrets, but my husband has retired and I no longer have the time and energy necessary to do this properly.

I am willing to help anyone wanting to start a rescue, I will still take back any previously adopted ferrets if it doesn’t work out, and I am happy to answer questions and offer advice.

I am sincerely grateful for all my wonderful volunteers and adopters. I couldn’t have done this without you. I’ve met some wonderful people over the years and I’m not disappearing.

Thank you for 15 years and helping me help over 1000 ferrets.
