Happy Holidays: We're all done for 2013 meetings. All the NSW Ferret Welfare Society committee and volunteers would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year. We will be back in 2014 with our AGM on the 1st of February and first social day on the 2nd of March.
December Meeting: Thankyou to everyone who attended our December social day at Ingleburn. Photos from the day are available in our new photo gallery by clicking here.
We are a volunteer, non profit, incorporated society.
Our aims are:
- To promote the welfare of ferrets
- To educate interested people regarding all aspects of ferret care and ownership
- To find homes for strays and unwanted ferrets, and
- To provide fellowship for ferret owners.
The NSW Ferret Welfare Society does not breed ferrets for sale or recommend breeders. If you have received information from a breeder claiming to be selling ferrets as an authorised member of the Society please let us know.
Our Society sells ferrets that are rescued or surrendered. More information on obtaining a ferret is available on the available ferrets page.

Warm weather is starting up and it's possible we're in for some bad heatwaves. A ferret starts to become uncomfortable when temperature
s reach mid 20's and will put a ferret at a very high risk of suffering heat stroke and possible death.
