"February" is an adorable, fuzzy ferret that craves attention! She is your typical lovable ferret that aims to please and loves to get into mischief. She does extremely well with other ferrets as well as dogs. 

Won't you be her

TRSAR is a female directed, fully permitted 

501(c)3 nonprofit rescue that services the state of Texas. We were the first nonprofit rescue dedicated to reptiles in Texas. Directed by Nikki Pesek, we have worked with reptiles and exotics for over 30 years. TRSAR intakes unwanted pets and rescues. We rehabilitate, provide a wellness check, veterinary care,

temperament test, socialize, and then adopt out our animals to qualified forever homes. We are committed to captive animal husbandry and are proud to diligently partner with TPWD, local shelters, and animal control, to ensure seized animals are given a second chance.
