Update April 12, 2022

We have started a new waiting list for 2022.  If you were on last years list and are still interested, please email ferretfriendsaz@gmail.com to be moved to the current list. 


Ferret Friends Inc. is a A 501(C)3 Nonprofit, No-Kill–Rescue, Shelter located in Tucson and Vail, AZ. We are dedicated to the education of prospective owners and current owners of ferrets.  We also rescue and work to rehabilitate behavioral and sick ferrets along with finding homes for unwanted or "kicked out of their homes" ferrets.  We are considered a no-kill shelter, as we do not put to sleep current residents to make room for more.

We welcome visitors, by appointment, just wanting to know more about these furry tornadoes.  If we can just teach you how to find the right ferret and their proper care, that is one less ferret that has to end up in a rescue/shelter situation. 


Our rescue sponsors an annual Spring Fling Picnic usually held at Fort Lowell Park.

Ferret Friends was founded in 1985 by Ginny Childs.
