Hide-E-Hole Ferret Rescue is located in Pittsburgh, PA. We take in unwanted ferrets, get them medical care as needed, work on behavior issues, and strive to find good, permanent homes. If the ferret is deemed unadoptable (usually due to serious health problems), we will keep that ferret for the rest of its natural life. As a true no-kill shelter, we only euthanize in the case of medical necessity. We rely on the support of volunteers and sponsors to support our cause. Any support is appreciated. The shelter has been “official” since November 2002, but Barb Carlson has personally been doing rescue work with ferrets (on a much smaller basis) for at least 5 or 6 years before that.
Barb Carlson loves all animals, but has a special place in her heart for ferrets. She loves the ferret’s intelligence and unique view on life. She even loves how ferrets are gleefully unrepentant when they wreak havoc. Barb is more inclined to laugh at a pile of shredded paper towels than to get angry, and is well-known for taking photos of disasters before starting the cleanup.
