Crocheted eggs, ferret crinkle sacks, shampoo, harnesses w/leashes, toys, homemade hammocks, crinkle snuggle sacks, circular beds, and many other items.

WANTED: Volunteers I have the whole lower level of the house for the ferrets. Plenty of room to play. Also involves cleaning litterboxes & feeding. Volunteers are the backbone of ALL shelters. Little donations add up to BIG Miracles. People have asked me if I have a Wish List. I never thought of it before. But now that I think about it, I guess I do:


Melatonin Implants

Totally Ferret(Active, Complete, Turkey/Venison/Lamb

Wood Stove Pellets

Ferret Nation cages

Cable ties(best things to use to hold playpens together)

Gift certificates to gas stations. Gas is expensive! I go to Speedway with my Speedy Rewards card.

Big jar candles

Vet care donations (donations can be sent to Coit Animal Clinic, 1958 Coit NE, Grand Rapids MI 49505, phone 616/363-5530)

Thank you to those who cared enough to ask what I needed.

Who We Are

The West Michigan Ferret Connection was established in October 2001. As of June 15, 2012, 487 ferrets have been re-homed.

In addition to WMFC, I am also one of the Founders of the Midwest Ferret Fellowship, a Michigan based group dedicated to educating and promoting the domesticated ferret as a companion pet. Visit our website at www.midwestferretfellowship.org

Adopting a friend

In my opinion, ferrets are best obtained by rescue, not from a pet store where ferrets are "sold" specifically for profit. I do not "sell" ferrets. I "re-home" them. They've already been "dumped" once and I want to make sure they are not "dumped" again. The ferrets under my care deserve to have a safe and secure "forever" home and I do everything I can to guarantee that. Ferrets aren't for everybody and I can't stress strongly enough that you should do your research. If you are interested in learning about ferrets, please feel free to contact me.

The best ferret reference (in my opinion) is FERRETS FOR DUMMIES.

I also high recommend researching ferrets on the Internet through www.ferretcentral.org

Effective November 1, 2010 a $20 surrender fee will charged for ferrets that do not have rabies certification.
