8 Ferrets Abandoned By The Roadside – Update

Janean, Dave and Jackie with the 8 rescues

Update – It has been brought to our attention via emails and social media that the 8 ferrets were more than likely not abandoned on the side of the road but were owned by an individual who fabricated the story so that we would have sympathy and would take the ferrets in immediately, with no questions asked.  We have received sufficient evidence such as screenshots and photos off of Facebook pages and emails as further evidence.  

It is always better to tell the truth and to reach out to your local animal shelters for help.  That is what we are here for.  We don’t judge, we just want what’s best for the animals.  

Thank you everyone for your concern, your support and your donations.  These ferrets will still need homes so we will begin interviews on or around the 25th of February.

Ferret Dreams received a call on February 21st from a woman in Fort Collins, Colorado who was driving down the road and saw a cage by the roadside with a “Free” sign attached.  She stopped the car and was shocked to find 8 ferrets in a filthy cage, without food and water, out in the cold.

She took the ferrets home and made several calls  and was directed to us here at Ferret Dreams Rescue.  We contacted our friend and volunteer Janean Ruegsegger who lives up north and asked if she could pick up the ferrets for us.

Once the ferrets arrived at Janean’s, the starving ferrets ate for several hours straight.  After a good meal, they were given a bath and all 8 took a long deserving nap.  Janean, her husband Dave and daughter Jackie then brought all 8 ferrets to us.    

If you are interested in donating to Ferret Dreams Rescue so that we can continue our mission in helping every ferret in need that comes our way, donate here.  Thank you for helping us help ferrets.

After we evaluate all the ferrets, we will place them up for adoption.  All 8 seem to be under 1 year old.  If you are interested in any of these ferrets, please contact us.
