Adopt Us! Cooper and Shadow





















Cooper and Shadow are a couple of rambunctious, fun loving, playful ferrets.  They love to play rough but love the heck out of each other.  They are young, active and very people friendly.  However, they must go to a home with no other ferrets.  Cooper is definitely an Alpha Male and only enjoys the company of Shadow.

If you are interested in adopting this pair, please contact us.  All adoptions are subject to approval.  The adoption fee for this pair is $150.00.  We do not adopt ferret for children under 18 but will consider adoption as a family pet.





DreamAngel – Dawn sponsors Liberty

Dawn and Liberty

Dawn and Liberty

Ferret Dreams Rescue was recently contacted by Dawn Larson who heard of our rescue through Canyon View Animal Hospital.  Dawn was touched by Liberty and his struggles with Lymphoma and wanted to be a part of his life through our DreamAngel program.  Dawn spent an afternoon with Liberty and brought him lots of fun toys and treats.

Thank you Dawn for wanting to be a part of Liberty’s life here at the rescue.

Here is what Dawn wrote:

I’ve always loved ferrets. I had several different neighbors growing up that had ferrets and I would spend hours and hours just playing with them. I never had any of my own until February this year and I immediately fell in love! Their curiosity and clumsiness, busyness and tenacity, their intoxicating personalities, all make them irresistible.
We currently have five critters of our own and they complete our family in ways no other pet could. I took two of our recently adopted girls to see Dr. Bumpers (one has a chordoma and the other has early Adrenal disease) and she told me about Ferret Dreams. When I saw Liberty and heard his story, my heart just broke in two. I can’t bear the fact that our society as a whole has become a “throw-away” society; that we just get rid of our old and infirm because we don’t have the time, energy or resources to deal with them anymore. Whether it’s our elders or our pets, too often, they are sent away or put down once their cuteness or independence is gone. All pets, big or small, are a lifelong commitment; without exception. They give us their very best and they deserve our very best for as long as they grace us with their presence.
Liberty is just one of the far too many victims of our immediate gratification society. He got sick, and even though his humans had the resources, they couldn’t find the time to get him the care that he needed. I believe our pets are as important as any other member of our families and they should be afforded the same love and respect that they give to us. Unconditional love, sadly, is far too rare in our world. Liberty won’t be with us much longer due to the neglect he was shown, but I know that the rest of his life will be as comfortable as possible now that he’s at Ferret Dreams. It is truly an honor to help support him and love him until he goes Home. I’m so grateful for the work that Ferret Dreams is doing and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be involved in such a noble cause.

We’re Adopted! Dexter and Dash

And then, there were 4!

And then, there were 4!


Dexter and Dash have gone to their new home with Tiffany and Bob.  We want to thank them for adopting these two cuties.  And now there are 4 ferrets to love and spoil rotten – It’s ferret math as they say.

Dexter and Dash are a couple of cuties.  They are very lovable with non-stop energy.  Both are 2 year old males, very healthy and ready for their new home.  Dash is a deaf Blaze but is really in tune with what’s going on and Dexter is a Light Sable colored ferret.

Both get along with other ferrets and are very human friendly.  They are high maintenance because of their high energy levels but a pleasure no less.

If you are interested in this pair, please contact us.

Adoption fee is $150 for the pair.  All adoptions are subject to approval.

Angel’s Hope


Angel was adopted along with another ferret from Ferret Dreams Rescue over 3 years ago. She was returned back to us because her companion ferret had passed away and the owner thought it was in her best interest to return her.

She stated that Angel was gaining weight and depressed. When we asked if Angel had been taken to the Vet in case there was a medical issue with her rather than depression and weight gain, they stated that they knew for certain she was depressed and nothing medical wrong with her.
The minute we held Angel, we knew there was something wrong. Please don’t wait till your ferret is suffering or the medical issue gets worse. Angel was never depressed, she was sick. Thanks to all who support our Medical Fund, Angel now is recovering from spleen surgery and will be feeling a whole lot better real soon.

Special thanks to Dr. Jerry LaBonde at Homestead Animal Hospital and his wonderful staff for all you did for Angel.

Dr. Krista Keller


Here is a little bio about Dr. Keller:
Krista was born and raised in New England. She attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and spent her clinical year of veterinary school at Tufts University. After veterinary school, she pursued advanced training in companion animal medicine and surgery during a one year internship at Louisiana State University. Because her passion for animals and the human-animal bond was geared towards non traditional animals kept as companion pets (birds, reptiles, exotic small mammals, fish), Dr Keller enrolled in a 3 year advanced training residency program at the University of California, Davis specializing in companion zoological animal medicine and surgery. In 2014 Dr Keller became board certified in the American College of Zoological Medicine and is one of 8 veterinarians in the world to pursue specialization in Zoological Companion Animals. She has published several articles in national publications such as the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery and has spoken nationally and internationally on veterinary topics. When not treating birds, exotic small mammals, reptiles and more at Thrive Veterinary Care, she is spending time with her 2 dogs (a pug and Brussels griffon), her cat who thinks he is a dog, and 2 leopard geckos.
