National Nonprofit Petco Love Invests in the Washington Ferret Rescue & Shelter to Save and Improve the Lives of Pet Ferrets in Western Washington State

Everett, WA, May, 2023 – Washington Ferret Rescue & Shelter, is set to receive a $4000.00 grant investment from national nonprofit Petco Love in support of their lifesaving work for animals in Western Washington State.

"This grant from PetCo Love will enable us to continue to provide quality care including medical care for all the surrendered and abandoned pet ferrets that come to us. It means that we will be able to replace caging and other husbandry needs, and to provide needed medical care and surgery, particularly for the geriatric ferrets. We are a no-kill shelter, and give every ferret the best quality of life possible. This grant will greatly help us to do that," said Dr. Cathy Johnson-Delaney, one of the founders and currently Secretary on the Board of Directors.
