Volunteer Opportunities

How Can You Get Involved?
We invite you to join our unique team as an Oregon Ferret Shelter Volunteer! Without the talents of many compassionate and generous people, just like you, donating time to our shelter, we would not be able to keep our doors open year-round. Our volunteers are directly responsible for our daily success and operation. Due to this continued support, hundreds of ferret adoptions have occurred. Ultimately, each volunteer helps our ferrets find their new “Forever Homes”.

Here are some of the things we need volunteers for:

  • Shelter Cleaning Day — consists of cleaning each cage, feeding, checking water bottles, and letting the ferrets out to play.
  • Clipping Toenails — handling each ferret and trimming toenails (after proper training).
  • Enrichment of Ferrets — changing out toys and putting ferrets out to play.
  • Ferret Adoption Outreach — visiting different stores, such as PetSmart, with ferrets from the shelter that are up for adoption, and educating the public; done on a monthly basis.
  • Sewing — making bedding and toys for the shelter ferrets.
  • Petfinder.com — updating the internet adoption site for our ferrets.
  • Office Duties — filing, making copies, organization of products, etc.
  • Shelter Upkeep — sweeping, mopping, organization of supplies, etc.
  • Veterinary Transport — transporting ferrets to and from the vet's office.
  • Newsletter/Website — helping with the production of our newsletter and/or updating our website.

Our goal is to provide the best care for the ferrets in our shelter. We work with all skill levels, kids (under 14 must be accompanied by an adult), community service, and much more. If you don't see something you might like to do, then talk with us and we will find just the right way for you to help.

Please email or give the shelter a call at (503) 557-8369 for further information. Or you can call our Event/Volunteer Coordinator, Melissa Braukman, directly at (503)267-9404.
