Texico New Mexico Ferret Rescue is OPEN

Welcome to the internet home of Texico Ferret Rescue. We have now been in operation for going on 15 years, since Jan 1, 2006.

NOTE: Due to the complications of Covid-19 lockdowns on New Mexico, we have been unable to get in any ferrets since March 2020. If we do, we will make the announcement on our Facebook page.

Read this part carefully:

Remember, ferrets are active animals and need plenty of out of cage time. Ferrets have sharp teeth, fangs! Ferrets are not suitable pets for small children.

If you want to adopt a ferret, please fill out and return the adoption application.

A $90.00 dollar per ferret adoption fee is required. Bring cash. We no longer accept personal checks.

We operate on a “By Appointment Only” basis.

Our staff is small and all work regular jobs day and night. If you need to contact us, leave a message and someone will get back to you when possible.

NOTE: If you have a ferret emergency, please reference our contact page for alternate ways to contact staffers directly.  

You can DOWNLOAD THE FERT APPLICATION BY CLICKING HERE. If you have problems, you can also email us for an application.  Our email is: fertrescue@aol.com

You can return the application by mail or email.

NOTE: An incomplete application will be thrown away!

Check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page for more information on how the process works.

We also have many ferret items on hand, such as cages, litter pans and other ferret things, so check with us before you buy supplies. In many cases these are low or no cost, especially if you adopt a fert or two or three.

Active military may board their ferrets for free during TDY or vacation.

Texico Ferret Rescue is a not-for-profit organization. We are privately funded.
