Ferret Waystation is a ferret rescue and shelter located in Central Texas, serving the Austin metro area including Travis County and Hays County. In addition, we are proud to be a part of the Town Lake Animal Shelter’s Rescue Transfer Program.
Often ferret owners find that they can no longer care for their ferrets and the ferret is surrendered to the shelter. We also receive calls from individuals who find a stray ferret wandering in their yard. When this happens, every effort is made to find the ferret’s owner. If the owner cannot be located, the ferret is placed for adoption.
Our shelter ferrets are seen by our vet, updated with rabies and distemper vaccinations, and tested for ADV prior to being placed for adoption. We also assess each ferret’s behavior and personality to make sure they are placed in the best possible home. Our ferrets have already been homeless once, so we want to ensure the home we place them in is indeed their “forever home.”
