The Big Lick Ferret Shelter and Hospice is located in Roanoke, Virginia.We do not ship our ferrets so please DO NOT ASK.We are a small group of volunteers dedicated to helping local ferrets by providing respite to them while they wait for their forever homes.
We care for the ferrets in our guardianship by keeping them in private foster homes and do not have a central public shelter so appointments are necessary to see the ferrets.
Rico came in from Rockbridge SPCA on Halloween afternoon '09 as part of a two ferret transport. The two boys did not get along at first so we don't think they were surrendered together. Rico is a very personable Sable gib, about 2 yrs old with a dark face, but not much of a mask. Rico will seek out a human to snuggle with, getting right up under the blankets with them when ever possible. He has a terrible tarter issue but has been enjoying Nbones & Cheweasels which seem to be helping some. He will need a professional dental so donations toward this would be greatly appreciated.
All ferrets under the care of the Big Lick Ferret Shelter and Hospice are ADV screened upon intake & brought current on rabies and distemper if medical records are not available.
We require a home visit of all adoption candidates before an adoption will be granted so you must live within a 30 mile radius of the Roanoke Valley.
