Ferret shelters around the country are overcrowded and straining at the seams. It's bad and getting worse! The operators of ferret shelters give their time and money every day, often sacrificing their own needs to provide food, shelter, vet care and love to thousands (really...thousands) of ferrets who have been lost, abused or often simply dumped by people who can't be bothered to follow through on their commitment to their ferret. Support Our Shelters (S.O.S.) aids many needy ferret shelters each year. We have been in operation since September 1997 and became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in January 2001. Most of the funds S.O.S. raises go into a general pool for periodic distribution to the shelters on the list. Support is provided in the form of payment to shelter vets or gift certificates for ferret supplies. We also administer donations designated for a specific shelter or specific emergency rescues of large numbers of ferrets.
