          Thank you for your interest in adopting a ferret from Oxford Ferret Rescue. The first step in our adoption process is to complete this application form. The second step of the process is a telephone interview. The third step is a visit to the shelter. We welcome out-of-state applications, but please note that you MUST visit the shelter to adopt and we will NOT ship ferrets.


          Please understand that you need to go through our adoption process, be approved for adoption, and pay the adoption donation before any ferret is officially "yours." We cannot hold ferrets and deny them the opportunity to be adopted into a loving home. This application is not a guarantee that a ferret will be placed with you. All information will be used solely for the purpose of adoption and will not be shared with anyone outside ourrescue.


          By completing this form, you grant permission for our agents to contact your landlord, veterinarian, and any other contacts deemed necessary. This form may seem a bit long, and in depth, but the only reason we ask so many questions is to be sure we find the perfect home for our ferrets. They've already become homeless once,and we want to make sure their next home is forever. In order for your application to be considered, please fill out all areas of the application.


          Please note: Filling out this application does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt a ferret. Each application is reviewed and evaluated based on pre-set criteria. Any falsification of information will result in a refusal of the application or, if a ferret has already been placed, will result in the ferret being removed from the household.
