Where are you located?

The GFCA Shelter does not publish it's physical address out of concern for ferrets being left outside our door. Ferrets are extremely sensitive to the weather extremes in the midwest and will die if not cared for immediately. We prefer someone surrendering their ferret(s) to set up an appointment to drop off the ferret so we can learn as much about the previous care of the ferret before accepting the surrender. If you need to surrender your ferret, please call the GCFA Shelter at 708.442.8650. If your ferret is in need of medical assistance, please call your vet immediately. If you are having an emergency and it is after hours, we recommend calling Midwest Animal Emergency Hospital (Elmwood Park) 708.453.4755 OR 911 Animal Emergency (Skokie) at 847.673.9110.
