Ferrets are inquisitive and extremely apt at escaping. Being very agile they are able to escape through narrow gaps and weak points in cages. During the breeding season entire ferrets are particularly liable to escape however neutering helps reduce their desire to find a mate. As a working animal ferrets are prone to being stolen and can also be left behind. As ferret thefts are common, it is essential that owners take precautions. We recommend that you secure your ferret housing with padlocks and install security lights and CCTV. Try not to advertise the fact that you have ferrets. In order to increase your chance of being reunited with your ferret, we recommend that all ferrets are microchipped. When we take in a stray we always check for a microchip, as do most other rescues and vets.
