About GCFA

The Greater Chicago Ferret Association (GCFA) is an educational, rescue and adoption organization.

We have been supporting ferret owners as the only not-for-profit, no-kill shelter and club in Chicagoland for the past 30 years. Our goals are to spread the word about keeping ferrets as pets, and to care for neglected, abused and abandoned ferrets.

In addition to offering resources and information about the care and needs of the domestic ferret, we shelter hundreds of these energetic, sociable animals each year while looking for loving families to bring them to their forever homes.
