Adoption Application


Thank you for your interest in adopting a ferret from Ferret Haven By-The-Sea! 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 not shared with anyone outside Ferret Haven By-The-Sea. 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. If you do not submit information on how you can be reached, unfortunately, we have no way of contacting you, and therefore your application will not do you or us any good. Please fill out the email information if you wish to be contacted. Also, if you're using AOL, please make sure I can actually reply to you! We prefer to use email, since its much less expensive than long distance telephone calls. Thank You!
