Big Lick Ferret Shelter and Hospice
Donating is more than just time or money, it's peace of mind. Now you can help even the smallest animal.
We have a community filled with all the things you should know about your new family member.
The Big Lick Ferret Shelter & Hospice is located in Roanoke, Virginia and services a 30 mile radius of the valley.
We are but a few volunteers dedicated to helping domestic ferrets by providing temporary respite to them while they wait for their forever homes.
All ferrets under the care of the Big Lick Ferret Shelter & Hospice are vaccinated* upon intake if medical records are not available.
*(rabies & distemper are given two weeks apart to minimize reactions)
Information is also provided to the public about the proper care of ferrets.
If a ferret is sick, veterinary care is provided before placement.
If a ferrets' health or age does not allow for adoption, that ferret is lovingly cared for until he or she crosses the Rainbow
