Ferret (short coat) Ferret

Viago the Ferret needs a home

Please contact AHS ([email protected]) for more information about this pet.


Viago is a one year old large male ferret. He is very sweet and loves to be held. He does well on a harness and leash. He loves to go for car rides, and go shopping at Petco. He is house trained and crate trained. He will not potty while in a crate to go to the vet or Petco. He will not potty on the floor in the house or in Petco. He will hold it until he gets back to his foster home, and he immediately runs to the back corner of his cage to go to the bathroom. 

Viago is neutered, descented, up to date on his vaccinations, and microchipped. He was picked up as a stray before he came to us, so he is an escape artist. He must not be allowed to run loose inside without supervision. He should be kept in a large, ferret cage when left alone. He is eating Zupreme Grain Free ferret pellets. He prefers to drink water out of a bowl, but we keep both a bowl and a bottle in his cage so he has access to the bottle if the bowl is emptied before we get home. 

Our ferret adoption fee is $100.00 to help cover part of his vet bills. We do require that anyone interested completely fill out our standard prescreening application, and submit it via email or at Petco in Lafayette. Once that is processed, we will ask additional ferret specific questions to make sure you know what is required to own a ferret. You can download our prescreening application from our website or pick one up from either Lafayette Petco. Please note that our fax machine is broken, so email is the best way to get it to us.
