We are a small group of volunteers dedicated to helping domestic ferrets by providing temporary respite to them while they wait for their forever homes. We also provide information to the public about the proper care of ferrets. All ferrets under the care of the Big Lick Ferret Shelter & Hospice are ADV tested upon intake. If medical records are not available we have them first vaccinated for rabies & have a distemper titer done. If the titers come back in the protective range we don't vaccinate. Canine distemper vaccine reactions are common in ferrets.
We require a home visit of all adoption candidates before an adoption will be granted so you must live within a 30 mile radius of the Roanoke Valley. An adoption application can be received by sending an email request to: [email protected] Please visit our web site at: www.biglickferretshelter.com
