Your Request to Surrender Has Been Received

Your surrender request has been received.

Ferrets are accepted into Oxford Ferret Rescue as space permits. We will be in touch with you as soon as possible and will let you know if space is available and, if so, to set up an appointment.

We know that this may be a difficult decision for you and we are sure that you want to make the transition to our shelter as stress-free on your ferret(s) as possible. The following tips will help ensure the best transition possible.

  • Bring at least a few days’ worth of your ferret’s food with you to the shelter. Changing foods during a transition is not good for your ferret(s). Please make sure we know exactly what kind of food your ferrets are used to eating.
  • Bring familiar bedding (blanket, t-shirt, hammock) to the shelter. Do not wash the bedding in the seven days prior to bringing your ferrets to the shelter. The familiar scents will be calming and reassuring to your ferrets.
  • Bring any paperwork, veterinary records, vaccination records, etc. that you have to the shelter. If you do not have records, jot down your ferrets’ medical history as best as you can recall for us.
  • Please bring a completed Surrender Agreement along with you to the shelter.

We will be in touch as soon as possible. If you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to contact us.
