Asking Members of Water, Parks & Wildlife Committee to Support our Ferret Petition

We are asking members of the Water, Parks & Wildlife Committee for a letter of support for our petition currently in front of the Fish and Game Commission.  We are simply asking the Fish and Game Commission to reissue permits for ferrets as they did prior to 1985 for neutered male ferrets.

Quick – Sign our Petition!

We’re Petitioning the California Waterfowl Association to Change their Position on Ferrets

About Our Efforts

California remains one of only two states to continue to ban domestic ferrets as pets.  The other state is Hawaii.

We’ve been working on this issue a long time.  We have made some progress; our mailing list is approaching 10,000 and the new Fish and Game Commission has finally dealt with the issue.  They didn’t give us the result we asked for but it was the first time we were treated with courtesy and taken seriously in a long time.

We are continuing the effort.  I feel optimistic that if our numbers increase so do our chances.

What can you do to help?

Donate – Join the 3000 Club and make and pitch in five dollars on one of our Five Dollar Ferret Fridays.

We always seem to have petition or letter writing campaigns, if you are on our mailing list you will receive all the information you need.

Thank you for your support.  We only lose if we give up and we’re not giving up.  And they know that.
