Where It All Started
The North Pennine Ferret Welfare & Boarding opened in October 2009 when we moved to County Durham in the North East of England.
Barrie has owned ferrets for many years, on and off, since 1952, as pets and working, so it seemed the right way to go due to the fact that there are a lot of unwanted ferrets out there who need a safe haven and more people who want to keep them as pets but need some guidance.
We do Education days most weekends and PR events in and around the North East of England.
We have educational ferret fact sheets & ferret booklets to take away. We also have telephone numbers for the local ferret rescue centres, who we also recommend to potential ferret owners.
We offer classes on general ferret husbandry, ear cleaning & nail clipping, ferret hygiene and neutering.
Safety & Hygiene is always at the forefront of our activities with the handling of the ferrets, especially around children.
We are always fully covered by public liability insurance.
