Current Shelter Population: 102
More experienced volunteers—who have worked at the shelter for at least ten separate shifts—will need to take care of a few more ferret needs.
Each day, between 1 and 10 ferrets will need to be administered liquid medication to ease gastrointestinal (digestion) problems and disease management one to two times a day.
This means you will:
- Review a list of ferrets who need GI medications
- Prepare medications for delivery, usually by shaking the closed bottles to ensure they are properly mixed
- Draw the necessary amount of medications into small syringes (without needles)
- Handle the ferret to allow the delivery of medication
Surrenders and Adoptions
This requires special training to manage the acceptance of ferrets into the Shelter and adopting ferrets out of the Shelter. These tasks are usually reserved for volunteers who have volunteered for at least one year.
