Lane Area Ferret Shelter and Rescue is a no-kill shelter providing temporary housing, care, and rehoming services for stray, abandoned, or otherwise unwanted ferrets.
Until further notice, the shelter is closed to all adoptions; surrenders may be done on a case-by-case basis with limited personal contact. Please call (541) 484-1090 if you would like more information. Ferret Agility Trials are still scheduled to be held on September 13.
All services are by appointment only as shelter is in a private home.
We also provide boarding services for a reasonable fee. We are the only ferret shelter along the I5 corrider. We also service all southern Oregon from Albany to Ashland and northern California. We provide information and education about ferrets through brochures, hands-on demonstrations, and other events. We hope that through education and contact, people will gain a better understanding of the domestic ferret as a fun and playful pet.
Volunteers needed for upcoming events and shelter cleaning!
We need people to volunteer at all the events listed below. If you can help with any of them, please email or call (541) 484-1090 to discuss which events you can help out with! Volunteer times don't need to be the full time of the event. You can volunteer for just a few hours if you'd like. Volunteering can be used as community service credit if you need it!
At Ferret Meet and Greet events, we need people to handle ferrets to allow children (anyone younger than 16) to pet them, and to pick up a ferret for adults (16 or older) to hold them; if possible, answer questions about ferrets and ferret care, but not necessary.
Shelter Cleaning needs to be a regular thing, if at all possible. It would be usual stuff: emptying litter boxes, changing bedding, cleaning cage floors and shelves, interacting with the ferrets as they are running around at your feet, filling food dishes and water bottles, etc.
2020 Ferret Agility Trials: we need people to help with set up, tear down, setting up and timing ferret events, coordinating various ferret games, handling the kid/carnival games and handing out prizes, manning the food station (must have food handler's card), staffing the ferret shelter booth, staffing the Bandit Boutique, setting up for the raffles and auctions, etc. Email laneferrets @ yahoo (dot) com for more information!
