Welcome to FRES

The Ferret Rescue & Education Society (FRES) is a non-profit, charitable organization that was started by a group of devoted ferret owners in the Calgary area who recognized the need for a locally based rescue dedicated to ferrets. Our committed volunteers assist FRES in their goal to find permanent homes for all of the ferrets surrendered to us. They also provide shelter, basic needs, veterinary care, and if necessary, rehabilitation for all abused, unwanted, and abandoned ferrets regardless of their health status.

Foster/Adoptive Homes Needed

If you and your family have some extra time and love to spare, please consider becoming a FRES foster parent. FRES provides all the necessary supplies and the veterinary care. We are nearing capacity in our current foster homes, and welcome those ferret-minded folk who want to help out! Click here to find out how to become a foster parent. Better yet, become an adoptive home!! Why support a shelter? Watch this video!
