Heart of Ohio Ferret Association is currently seeking loving foster parents to support the many homeless ferrets being surrendered into our shelter, until they find their forever homes.
What does fostering entail? As a foster parent, you will be responsible for day to day care of the ferrets- cage cleaning, grooming, feeding, socializing, and playtime- and then choosing a suitable adoptive family when the time comes. All food, litter, and medical expenses will be paid for by HOFA- you provide the love!
Why foster a ferret? Aren't sure a ferret is the right pet for you? Fostering is a great way to test ferret ownership before committing to adoption. Maybe you'd like to have ferrets but can't afford them? Then fostering would be an ideal choice! If you've ever fallen in love with a ferret, fostering a ferret in need will be one of your most rewarding experiences. And the more foster parents we have, the more ferrets we can rescue, rehabilitate, and find wonderful permanent homes for.
Where can I sign up! If you're up to the challenge and the joy of being a foster parent, or have any questions about fostering, you can email our Shelter Chair at email@example.com or leave a message at (614) 428-0279.
Or you can complete our NEW Online FOSTER PARENT APPLICATION!

The Christmas Ferret Giving Tree
At Christmas time each year, the Christmas

HOFA's current hospice ferrets are listed on
the Tree. These are all special needs ferrets and
your thoughtful gift could help make their
remaining time happier.
Please consider becoming a "Secret Santa" to
one or more of these special fuzzies by clicking
on the Giving Tree link to the right and selecting
Heart of Ohio Ferret Association and Rescue.
WANT TO BECOME A FOSTER PARENT?
HOFA Rescue is now open for Adoptions!
But we do have a policy of not adopting out during the Christmas season from Dec. 15-Jan. 3. Pets should never be Christmas gifts brought into a home during such a busy time. Adoptions can be arranged to pick up after the holiday season.
Please keep in mind that our rescues are in our foster parent's homes. Due to Covid 19, we still do ask that all safety precautions/masks be adhered to and visitations will be up to the foster's discretion.
Go to our Adopt/Rescue/Foster page or email our Shelter Directors at: ShelterChair@yahoo.com for additional information.
