FRES relies on the love and compassion of foster families to care for the ferrets rescued by, or surrendered to, our organization. Potential foster families must go through the same screening process as our potential adopters with the added requirement of becoming a member. Our foster families are varied in their experience with ferrets and FRES will match a foster ferret to your experience. Being a foster family is a 24/7 job. Sometimes it is heartbreaking, but the joy of seeing a ferret recover from an illness, play and "dook" for the first time, or begin to trust humans is the ultimate reward of fostering. We are in need of foster homes that have previous ferret experience and are able to work with ferrets with special medical and behavioural issues. If you have no previous ferret experience you will not be declined but you may have to wait longer for us to find a fit for a first time family.
