Welcome!  We are very glad to have you visit with us.

The Big Lick Ferret Shelter & Hospice is located in Roanoke, Virginia and services a 30 mile radius of the valley.
We are a small group of 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 ADV tested and vaccinated* upon intake if medical records are not available.  *
(rabies & distemper are given two weeks apart to minimize reactions)
We also provide information to the public about the 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, we care for that ferret until he or she crosses the Rainbow Bridge.
