Heart Of Ohio Ferret Association & Rescue Inc


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, or our President at, OR leave us a message at (614) 428-0279.
