Fox Valley Ferret is a 501(c)-3 tax exempt shelter serving Central and Northern Wisconsin and the U.P. (and sometimes MN).  We have never turned away a ferret regardless of age, veterinary needs or behavior issues.  Ferrets inappropriate for adoption remain with us until they go to the bridge.  We are 100% volunteer run and do not receive any government funding.  We try to return all calls the same day, but the shelter mom works two jobs outside of the shelter, which include evening and weekend hours. 

Welcome to Fox Valley Ferret
please visit our
Adoption page to read about our available furkids and see some of their pictures.

Ferret FYI: Thinking about adopting or purchasing a Ferret? 
Here are a few things that your possible new pet would like you to know.

Fox Valley Ferret on Facebook. 
Become a Fox Valley Ferret fan on our organization page, or send us a friend request on our
original page, then post pictures of shelter alums or other ferrets that found homes with you.  But please remember-all are family friendly pages.

 Our RESIDENT MINK now have their own facebook fan page Minks of Fox Valley Ferret.  Next time you are on FB why not take a minute to like us.  Watch for added content.

We have a number of senior and otherwise unadoptable ferrets here at the shelter that would love to have a sponsor.  The biographies and pictures of these ferrets have been updated and can be found simply by clicking here.  Thank you for considering either a one time gift or on-going sponsorship.

Your donations and fundraising purchases allow Fox Valley Ferret Shelter to provide the best care for every ferret that comes to us, adoptable or not.

The sick or injured, like Lydia.

The biters, like Panda.

The seniors, like Thomas.

And all the others whether they stay a short time before going to their forever homes, or live out their days here with us.

Thank you for allowing us to do this for them.

FVF has offered Ferret boarding for many years.  We are also willing to offer vacation care for other pocket pets and exotics either at the shelter or in your Fox Valley home.  Nanette will also cat sit in your Fox Valley Home.  Sorry, no dogs-Nanette's work schedule is just too varied for them.  Please contact Nanette at 920-574-2277 if you want more details or to schedule.
