Small Pets Rescues

Ferret Rescue Society of Ottawa & Area

Ferret Rescue Society is the only animal rescue group in the Ottawa area that aids ferrets in need. Ferrets that are brought to the Humane Society are transferred to us for special care. Ferrets are rehabilitated and given any medical attention they require. All ferrets who are healthy enough are adopted out into carefully screened new families. Unfortunately, some ferrets that arrive at the shelter are no longer compatible in regular family environments. Therefore, these ferrets will become long-term residents of the society and will be placed in special foster homes. We have a no kill policy. The only exception is if it is medically impossible to treat or heal a ferret that is suffering.

Kozy Kritters Animal Rescue

Kozy Kritters is a small family run animal rescue who’s aim is to help with the re-homing of various “pocket pets” that other rescues often overlook.  In operation since 2012,  we relocated to Embrun, Ontario 2015 and have focused our efforts towards those animals in need within or near Russell Township.

We recognize that there are times when people are unable to continue to care for their pets, often times due to no fault of their own.  We don’t charge a fee for surrenders or adoptions and we sustain our operation on donations only.  Check out our site, learn more about our operation and feel free to ask questions.  If you feel moved to assist us in our work please visit our gofundme campaign.

Our goal is to find the most suitable environment for each specific pet and we reserve the right to refuse an adoption and/or foster situation. We want our pets to enjoy a forever home and we strive to achieve that through our procedures and policies.

Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue

Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue (OPRats) is a registered, non-profit organization working to raise awareness and share information about pet rats. We are involved in local rescue, fostering, and adopting. We advocate adoption over purchasing rats from pet stores or breeders, as the supply of rats far exceeds the demand, and the conditions at commercial breeders who supply pet stores with their rats are inhumane. (Please visit our website to learn the truth about pocket pet breeders and why we do not support or condone these businesses.)
