Local Resources

One of the things that the Pennsylvania Ferret Rescue Association strives to do is to be a source of information to ferret owners within our communities. We receive many calls from ferret owners seeking a veterinary referral, for advice and support, or just asking where they can locally purchase supplies for their ferrets. The following is a list of these kinds of resources in the Southwestern Pennsylvania area.

Please help us to keep this page updated! If you know of a resource that you would like to recommend, e-mail us and we will list it!

The following is a list of ferret-knowledgeable veterinarians.
