How To Get a JBF Kit or Older Ferret


Kits - The breeding season begins in early spring and goes through early summer, often Feb - July. Pet quality jill kits on spay contracts are made available to their new homes at 9-12 weeks of age. Hob kits will normally be available between 9-16 weeks of age though some hob kits may be held back until 20 weeks of age.

Adolescents and Adults - Early in the breeding season, we may choose to hold back more kits than we ultimately intend to keep for the breeding program. Some of these older kits and/or retired adults will be listed for adoption throughout the year.

Adoption Application

Waiting List - JBF keeps a waiting list of approved prospective homes for our litters. Look around the site, if you like what you see and would like to be added to our waiting list, please fill out our adoption application. Once approved, we will place you on our waiting list and let you know when we have someone who may fit your needs. A deposit is not necessary to be placed on the waiting list.

Application - The adoption application gives us an opportunity to get to know you and your family better so that we can select the best ferret for your household. No one answer is more correct than any other, be honest with your responses so you can be matched with the right individual. Complete and detailed answers will help speed up the application process, please select an answer for every question on the form. Completing the adoption application is a required pre-requisite to adopting a JBF ferret. A deposit for your choice of ferret will only be accepted after the adoption application has been approved.
