As of January 1, 2013, there are 56 ferrets housed at the West Michigan Ferret Connection.
Effective September, 2012, over 500 ferrets have found "forever homes".

Visit my website: www.westmichiganferretconnection.com LIKE the West Michigan Ferret Connection on Facebook The West Michigan Ferret Connection has non-profit status under Support Our Shelters (see info below). We receive no government funding and are heavily reliant on tax-deductible gifts from private and corporate donors to continue our work. BEAU & NILLA'S RESALE SHOP & MORE ..... Crocheted eggs, ferret crinkle sacks, shampoo, harnesses w/leashes, toys, homemade hammocks, crinkle snuggle sacks, circular beds, and many other items.
Used cages for sale.... all sizes .... carriers, too
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:
WEST MICHIGAN FERRET CONNECTION WISH LIST
Totally Ferret(Active, Complete, Turkey/Venison/Lamb

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
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.
