Five Points Ferret Refuge - Indianapolis Pet Shelter

We have been rescuing ferrets since 2009 in the Indianapolis area. We began innocently enough, searching for a couple of personal pets and discovered so many ferrets in need of good homes. Unable to find a local rescue, we took in several and while having them vetted, our veterinarian suggested we start rescuing. Unknowingly, we already were. All too soon, we realized we would not be able to care for all the ferrets who were coming to us; we would have to find homes for them. The quest for loving “forever” homes began in earnest and continues, as more fuzzies find their way to our home.

Adoption Process

We encourage applicants to research ferrets and their habits and care online or at the local library prior to applying. “Ferrets for Dummies, 2nd ed.” is highly recommended. After we review and approve your application (may take a couple of days) we invite you to come visit the ferrets. Our shelter is in our home, so we don’t have regular “business hours”. If you currently have a ferret and he is up-to-date on shots and healthy, feel free to bring them at this time to meet their new cage mate. After you have met the ferrets, we arrange a time convenient for you to visit your home and see where the ferrets will be living. Since they require out-of-cage time, we suggest a “ferret proof” room or small animal playpen. At this time we will answer any questions you may have regarding safety and we will discuss “ferret proofing”. If we get to this point, it is very likely you will be approved and can pick up your new family member. We ask $100 for singles and $150 for bonded pairs. Should your ability or desire to care for your ferret change in the future, we stipulate that you return him to us, rather than giving to a 3rd party. These little ones have been shuffled around too much already.
