Meet the Team

The Broward Ferret Rescue & Referral exists to rescue abandoned and surrendered ferrets where they may be placed in loving forever homes while educating the communities on their humane needs.

Dona Michaels is the Director and primary caretaker for the fuzzies at the rescue. She depends on dedicated volunteers to help with the day to day operations. With an average of 40 ferrets, the rescue is always in need of dedicated ferret knowledgeable volunteers to assist with cleaning the cages and giving the ferrets playtime. The ferrets also need their weekly grooming of nails, ears, teeth and baths. We need help with picking up surrendered ferrets or taking them to the vet for a checkup.  

The rescue has been successful in raising money by holding events for the ferret community. We offer food, games and prizes which are all donated. All proceeds go to the upkeep of the rescue. We also receive money from the adoptions as well as a donation link on our website. 

We educate the public on ferret care by attending local pet expos and animal fairs. We also do adoption days at PETCO where we inform the public of shelters. We also try to keep our website updated with current information. 

If you are considering adopting a ferret, please review the website for information and to see our adorable fuzzies.
