    My friend and i are travelling to the north east on sun to do a big ferret rescue, we will be bringing back about 34 albinos, mostly kits along with four adults.

    we desperatley need to get these in new forever homes, most people want fancy colours but albinos are usually very laid back and great little guys.

    Kist must go in pairs unles going with existing kits, the four adults will be split in pairs and will be neutered before leaving so this will be the adoption fee.

    Home check required, large hutch with run is minimum requirement, as much room as possible is best.

    ferrets are very playful and need lots of human contact and stimulation, they can live up to ten years so please consider it carefully.

    many thanks :)

    Where are these based is it in Lancs?
    I have a friend who is looking to rehome a couple of older ferrets and she would not mind albinos as she has two already.

    yes we are in wigan lancs.

    we desperatly need to rehome the kits but they need a confident handle as they nip through lack of handling, there are also other adults at the rescue, i have two bino jills who are adults needing homes but they need spaying first at the cost to new owner :) and must go together as they are sisters :)

    Can't offer a home I'm afraid, but I would like to say how absolutely adorable albino ferrets are.
    Out of our 3, our bino jill is the calmest and is very loving

    I don't know if I'm more saddened by the need for the rescue, or heartwarmed by the fantastic rescue & response......

    I'll go for heartwarmed :smilewinkgrin:
