Welcome to the internet home of Texico Ferret Rescue. We have now been in operation for 10 years, since 2006. 

Please feel free to browse our pages to learn more about TFR and our goals.

Read this part carefully:

February 19th, 2016:  Adoptions are closed to the general public. The only people we will adopt to must be current owners of ferrets, with experience in handling and keeping these little creatures. 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.

DO NOT CALL us if you:

A: Don’t have any money. We will not waive the adoption fee for you.

B: Are planning to get a ferret for small children or toddlers. The answer is no.

C: Have never owned a ferret, but think they would be cute to have. That is also an automatic no.

If you are a current ferret owner and want to add a member to your fert family, please fill out and return the adoption application. A $150.00 dollar per ferret adoption fee is required. Bring cash. We no longer accept personal checks. We are now operating on a “By Appointment Only” basis. We will make no appointments until we have received an application and have an idea of who we are dealing with. 

Download the adoption application by clicking here!

The file is in Adobe PDF format. It will open in your browser, and you can then print the file directly–or you can save a copy directly to your computer. If you require a WORD document, email and one will be sent out.

You can return the application by mail or email. If you have problems opening the document, call or email us with your contact information and we will snail mail a printed application.  NOTE: An incomplete application will be thrown away.

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

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