Ferret rescue and shelter in St. Mary's county. The first in Southern MD that I am aware of. We take in ferrets that are no longer wanted, or than someone is no longer able to care for. Being located near PAX base, I understand that some areas, like Washington DC and California do not allow someone to keep a ferret for a pet, so am expecting, and welcome, ferrets that have to be surrendered due to relocation.
