The Ferret Villa Shelter, Inc. 501c3 is a residential shelter located in Northern Kentucky in the Greater Cincinnati area. You will find us listed with the American Ferret Association and Support Our Shelters Organization. Transportation of ferrets is another activity provided. Cindy serves as a board member of F.E.R.R.E.T. (Ferret, Emergency, Response, Rescue & Evacuation Team), as well as other ferret groups and organizations.
We opened our doors in 2003 to assist other shelters that were overcrowded. As time went on we began to work with Kenton County Animal Shelter, which is a kill shelter in picking up any ferret that is turned into their Shelter. Our goals are simple: To prevent ferrets from being unnecessarily euthanized in county animal shelters. Ferrets are accepted from county shelters and private individuals. Our mission is to serve ferrets by finding them a loving, safe, happy and permanent home. In the course of the last few years, due to the down turn in the economy, some ferrets with extreme health concerns have been surrendered to the Shelter. This has created an enormous vet bill which continues to grow as our ferrets are seen on a regular basis as well.
100% of all proceeds go to benefit our ferrets' medical needs, vet bills, food, & supplies here at the "The Ferret Villa Shelter."
Due to a number of factors, we have had to eliminate ...some of our revenue producing shows.
The Ferret Villa Shelter is in the process of developing a unique combination of an online store with the excitement of an auction also. The fun of an auction & shopping, with the fuzzy feeling of supporting our shelter.
