Furetti Ferrets

Port Orange, Fla 32129
Furetti Ferrets was established in 2000 by a group of ferret enthusiasts in Denver Colorado. In 2009 Furetti Ferret's new owner relocated the shelter to Amherst Ohio. Furetti moved to Port Orange Florida May 2014.

The shelter operates without volunteers and is personally funded. Furetti Ferrets is primarily a hospice shelter; most all of our fur kids are sick and or older ferrets that are not adoption candidates.

Stinky Pete's Ferret Retreat is a home based ferret rescue in Seminole County, Florida. Just outside of Orlando operated by ferret owners. We started the rescue when our local ferret rescue closed and we saw so many ferrets in our surrounding areas that needed our help.

In business since 2005, we take in unwanted, neglected and found ferrets in the Central Florida area. We are trying to do only emergency cases as of now. We do have a lot of resources for people needing to rehome their ferrets.

We also love to educate people about ferret ownership

Abandoned Pet Rescue (APR) founded in 1996, is a 501(C)(3) IRS tax-exempt, qualified non-profit charitable organization that rescues and shelters abandoned, abused, and neglected pets, rehabilitates them and finds them new homes. APR is one of the largest no kill animal shelters in South Florida and is devoted to the welfare of all animals. Most of the over 300 animals are Cats, Dogs, Bunnies, Iguanas, and other animals in need of help. While pet overpopulation is declining throughout the country, the number of animals brought to South Florida shelters is increasing.

APR's primary goal is to assemble a no-kill community. This is quite a daunting task; nonetheless, APR is making a valuable contribution to the animal community and will continue to do so as long as support is provided from generous donors. APR is dedicated to matching the right pet with the right home for the enduring happiness of both pet and owner. Our pets are with us as long as they need to be & to be healthy and well adjusted. Often they need medical care, love and time to feel secure before they can be placed up for adoption. Our lives are dedicated to finding forever homes for each of our pets. It is our passion, it is our responsibility. If you would like to make a donation to support APR, please visit our website!
