They offer ferrets for adoption and you can see the list of available animals on their website. To get one, you will need to fill out their adoption application before they contact you about the next part of the process. They charge an adoption fee of $50-$150, depending on the age of the ferret (the older the animal, the lower the price). Bonded pairs will also come discounted depending on their age.

According to their website, all ferrets come current on rabies and distemper vaccination, microchipped, and have had a health exam to check for teeth, heart, or tumor problems; they also come guaranteed for 30 days against illness and 3 months against adrenal tumors. Texas Ferret Lover’s Rescue does not ship their ferrets.

Here are:

Things To Know Before Buying A Ferret

  • Ferrets are not rodents but mammals. These intelligent and lively animals weigh from 1-3 pounds (females) up to 5-6 pounds (males).
  • Ferrets come in a variety of colors. Albinos (white with ruby eyes) are the original color; other colors include sable (with a raccoon-like mask), chocolate (brown), silver, and cinnamon.
  • Ferrets are a long-term commitment. They can live about 8 to 10 years.
  • Ferrets require daily interaction. Similar to cats, they are small, quiet, and relatively easy to care for, but ferrets still need daily human companionship and interaction, just like dogs.
  • They require investment. Together with the initial price of purchasing (or adopting), you will need to buy food, housing (cage, bedding, and litter), toys, and pay veterinary checks. 
  • Ferrets are not for people who are often way from home. They can become depressed if often left alone or placed in a cage for too long.  
  • Ferrets get along well with other animals. They are very playful and will blend in nicely with your other pets, make sure to supervise them for a while before they get used to one another.
  • They need proper health care. Ferrets need to be vaccinated every year against canine distemper (a viral infectious disease that is 100% fatal) and inspected by a veterinarian at least once a year.
  • Do proper research before purchasing one. When buying from pet stores, always read reviews of other people on Google and Yelp and ask sellers about the health guarantees they offer for their animals.
  • Don’t shop – adopt. In case you decided to get a ferret, consider adopting instead of buying from a pet store. Shelter personnel have a better insight into a ferret’s personality, can help you choose one that fits your lifestyle and expectations, and getting one from a shelter is cheaper than store ones.


And there you have it! 4 places with ferrets for sale in Texas (TX). As you could see, we mostly listed pet shops and a ferret rescue – there seem to be no private ferret breeders operating in the state. There was one named Top Notch Ferrets from Houston, but they are no longer active.

Make sure to call (at reasonable hours) and check if the seller currently has animals available for sale, see them in person, or request a video call verification, before paying for anything in advance. There are many scammers out there.

Owning a ferret is illegal in several US states – check the legislation and requirements before buying one! 

Ferrets can be great pets as they are friendly, cute, and entertaining animals. Remember to provide enough housing space for the animal, a regular supply of food and water, spend some time interacting with your pet daily and regularly clean up after it.

We take our ferret directory seriously – please send us a message if we’ve helped you find a proper animal or if you had any negative experiences with any of the breeders mentioned here.
