So you are thinking about breeding Ferrets?
THINK it can’t make a difference if you don’t spay or neuter your pet?
THINK that because your ferret is a great colour or ‘Is an excellent Worker’ that its offspring will be of value?
THINK that “having just one litter” can’t possibly hurt?
PLEASE THINK AGAIN!
The sad facts about the growing problems of unwanted ferrets in the UK are as follows:
Each year the number of ferrets picked up by ferret rescues/shelters doubles.
Over half of those ferrets are starving, abused and have serious emotional and psychological problems.
There are just over one million ferret owners in the UK............
There are 50% of that number in rescue centres!
Female Ferrets DO NOT need to have babies but they DO need to be taken out of season!
