Found this morning in Folsom PA. Cold wet and shivering but otherwise unharmed. I cannot keep it as I have other pets. Keeping it warm and safe hoping for the owner to come for he/she. Please contact me if yours as I mentioned I cannot keep it and not sure what to do if no owner comes foreward. Thank you!
Iso female ferret no older than 5 months looking to give mine a playmate
Hello. I am looking for a young ferret. Nice coloring and friendly with children. I live in Bernville PA.
Hi folks,
I am looking to adopted one or two cat-snakes. We have had ferrets for 8 years now. We live in Northampton County and are willing to travel.

Thanks :D

Bummin hardcore 😑 if you guys see a ferret roaming arnold hes mine... just grab him hes nice he doesnt bite 😔
How are Mumbo and Jumbo doing? I've been thinking about them.
I wish I could foster or adopt all the little love muffins! My ferret died on 8 April. I'm not ready to adopt another yet--he is still taking up most of the space in my heart, but I would like to drive and visit the shelter and find out what I can do to help you. I don't live far from Lewisburg, PA. I'll message or call when I have a good week.
Hi I am located in Washington county Maryland and I am not sure where to go or who to ask some things about my ferret (Medical and health wise)... I really need some advice or recommendations .... Please inbox me for details.

It’s been raining ferrets this week - we still have Butters and Princess who are ready to go 🙂 but we also have 3 young pairs coming this week! If interested in a pair (pictures and descriptions coming soon!), please PM us and I'll send you an application. They will quarantine until ADV test results come back and then vetted and vaccines start. So should be ready to go in about 3-4 weeks 🙂 some pics to peak your interest

Happy New Year from the kids at the PFRA!

11/18/2019

Meet Captain & Calypso! This pair of 1 year old kids are absolute sweethearts. Currently in quarantine, they will be available for adoption after the holidays as they need to be vaccinated, as well. If interested in adopting, drop me a PM or an email.

10/26/2019

UPDATE: STILL AVAILABLE - NOW PART OF A PAIR WITH ROSY

Meet Finley, a sassy 8 month old black roan mitt jill. She had to be surrendered due to an aggressive dog situation. She loves everyone but not everyone loved her 😞 she is used to free roaming and hanging with her family. Finley will be available for adoption after her quarantine, ADV testing and vaccines are done (about 30 days). If you are interested in adopting this sweetheart, drop me a PM for an adoption application.

10/26/2019

UPDATE: STILL AVAILABLE - NOW PART OF A PAIR WITH FINLEY

Meet Rosy, she is a sweet champagne girl who is 2.5 years old. Her family was moving and were not allowed to bring her. She will be available once her adv test comes back and she is up to date on her vaccines. We are not sure if she likes other ferrets yet but we’ll find out once she’s out of quarantine. Please drop me a PM if you are interested in adoption.

UPDATE: they were adopted - yay!!!

These guys came in during a busy period and I forgot to post them 🙂 meet Ollie, Xeva & Daisy. They are a trio that just turned 3yo on 8/16/16. Sweet as pie and would be a great set of first ferrets or for a family with children. They do NOT get along with other ferrets so need to be the only ferrets in the home or have separate run times. If you are interested in adopting them, please drop me a PM for an application. ETA: Xeva had emergency surgery for a huge bladder stone but came thru it fine. They will be available for adoption as soon as she has the all clear from the vet (probably end of August).

06/23/2019

UPDATE: Kelly has been adopted, but ShaSha & Sherry STILL need a home. These boys are sweethearts, but do NOT get along with other ferrets. If interested, please drop me a PM!

******* Meet ShaSha (chocolate), Sherry (dark nose DEW) and Kelly (pink nose DEW) - this trio came to us when the Owner found they could not take them back to their country after graduation. They are going to be 3,4 & 4 this fall. They are lovely kids who will be available for adoption at the end of July. They are ADV negative & up to date on vaccinations. All blood glucoses are normal and coats look good. If interested in adopting them, please drop us an email or PM. Thanks!

06/17/2019

UPDATE: SHE'S ADOPTED!

Say hello to Alexis, our newest surrender 🙂 she is a sweet 2yo sable jill who will be available for adoption after July 15th. If interested in adopting her, please send email or PM us for an adoption application. I will have more details about her once we get to know her.

03/25/2019

The 2018 Ferret of the Year awards banquet is this Friday and some PFRA kids have done super well - congrats Rae, Ottis, Ben & Freya 🙂 Shelter kids can totally be show ferrets!

Oliver went to his new home today! Thank you, Alicia 😄

12/25/2018

Happy Holidays from the PFRA!

12/15/2018

Pinecone and Remus got a home - yay! Thank you for giving these boys a great home, Ashley :)

10/11/2018

Teddy, Soup & Crackers are an older trio (they lost their 4th member, 7yo Star, to renal failure after coming into the shelter). These guys are a sweet group of ~5 yo kids who need an experienced foster home to make their final years comfortable and happy. Teddy and Soup have had some weight loss since coming to us. Teddy also may be adrenal, so we'll be treating him for that. Crackers came to us with a mouth abscess that has healed beautifully and a swollen v***a that has gone down after being given a des implant. So typical health issues for older kids :) If interested in fostering them, please drop me a PM. Must be able to bring them to the shelter vet (Boalsburg Animal Wellness) for care and must be experienced with older ferrets and their health issues.

10/11/2018

Remus & Pine Cone are a pair of 10 month old boys that need a home. Surrendered due to a housing issue, these boys are fun loving, playful, energetic and really need a home that can give them the attention they need. They are ADV negative and UTD on vaccines, so send in your applications - they'd love to have a home in time for the holidays :)

Meet Cocoa - he is a 3 year old male and sweet as can be. He’s rarely been out of the cage for the last 3 years, but he doesn’t let it get him down. He is laid back and loves to cuddle 🙂 as you can see from his pictures he loves a comfy bed. He is ADV negative and will be available after his vaccines are done. So mid-September.

08/17/2018

UPDATE: Angel has a home!

Meet Angel - she was left in a condemned apt with two kitty friends - but don’t worry, all are safe now! She is 6mo and adorable - she has an adoption pending already and will be available as soon as her vaccines are finished (she is also ADV negative). Yay for Angel!

08/17/2018

UPDATE: Freddie has a home!

Meet Freddie Mercury! He was left in an apartment when the owner left the country 😞 thankfully he’s fine and he’s such a sweetheart. He’s around a year old, ADV negative and will be available for adoption as soon as his last CD shot is given - so beginning of September I’d love for him to be going to a new home 🙂 ETA: He gets along well with other non-aggressive ferrets, too. He and Buster play and the girls curl up with him to nap.

[08/17/18]   We’ve had a little rush on intakes, so I’ll be posting pics and descriptions here (and updating petfinder hopefully this weekend. We have even more kids slated to come in so if you’re thinking of adopting, now would be a great time 🙂 Nina & Dutchess, as well as Buster & Midge, still need homes, too.

08/05/2018

So I’ve been wanting to do something like this for awhile and finally did it - the kids are loving it! Get some black tubing from Lowes and zip ties to hold them to the cage and voila 🙂 for less angles, instead of going straight down the side of the cage, go down the back at a less steep angle so it’s an easier climb. But it’s a great way to build muscle 🙂 thanks to Staci for the idea

05/21/2018

Meet Nina & Dutch(ess) - 2 young sable jills that came to the shelter today. Owner had been told they were males (Nino & Dutch). They will be adv tested tomorrow and started on vaccines. They will be available for adoption in 3-4 weeks. If interested, drop me a PM and we’ll get you an application.

I’m so happy to say that Arya & Willow got adopted today! I wasn’t sure they would as they are both over 5 years (although in great shape and very active) and most folks want kids under 3. Thank you so much, Katie!!

[02/09/18]   I totally forgot to take pictures, but Tuesday and Reggie went to their new home today - thanks Ashley!! Maybe their new mom will post some pics with them and their new sister, Bandit :)

About the shelter...

Formerly known as The Central PA Ferret Rescue, I took over in June of 1997 for the old director when she moved to southeastern PA. We take in stray and unwanted ferrets, get them vetted, on a healthy diet and give them love until we find them a new, permanent home.

You can see pictures and descriptions of available ferrets on our Petfinder page (search for ferrets in State College, PA). Drop me an email if you are interested in an adoption application :)
