I Am Ferret, a 501(3)(c) rescue organization was established in April,
2011 and currently resides in the Kansas City, Missouri metropolitan area. Our services include:
- Ferret rescue
- Community education
- Information proliferation
- Successful adoptions to wonderful forever homes
I Am Ferret was formed to help create a cohesive rescue community to be the
voice for not only ferrets, but every defenseless domestic animal in need of a loving forever
home. With our direct emphasis placed on rescuing and aiding surrendered, abused, forgotten
and neglected animals.
It is our main goal to build a strong network within the ferret community, but also to extend
assistance and connect with other animal groups. As a professional rescue organization, we
hope to join forces and form alliances within the whole of the animal rescue community. We look
forward to working alongside other community organizations to help all of us achieve our goals
and give every animal a voice.
We can all learn from one another and assist each other. There should be no competition when it
comes to saving lives. We are dedicated to working with each and every rescue/shelter group that
is open to collaboration towards meeting a common goal of rescuing, saving and finding good forever
homes for all domesticated animals, with our special emphasis on ferrets. We want to be another new
voice for them. Our hearts desire is to speak for those that can’t. For anyone wanting to learn more
about us and our organization, we invite you to visit our website, send an email, or give us a call. We
welcome any and all questions.
Our Mission Statement
To maintain the preservation and improve conditions for ferrets as they exist as pets and in the wild.
Through education and partnerships, we can protect, sustain, and improve the well-being of all species
of the mustalidae family. We are dedicated to finding a diplomatic and productive approach for advancing
the levels of knowledge of breeding, habitat, diet, maintenance, and the overall commitment required in
the care of ferrets.
We invite you to become a part of our effort in educating the world on ferret care, matching loving
responsible pet owners with the “right” pet for themselves, their families, and their families' newest
additions. We strive to stop animal neglect, abuse, and milling through education and alliances built
within the community.
