The cries of the babies in the videos, alone, will haunt me for the rest of my life.
If you truly do care about pets I challenge you to take a stand on this matter and cease all contracts with Triple F ferrets immediately.


Abuse, Neglect, & Death at a ferret farm, upstate PA.
This story was carried by CBS News on Sept. 2, 2011:

What one views and reads in the above referenced links are, no doubt only a small portion of the horrendous inhumanity that is part of Triple F's standard operating procedures. The truth of such deplorable conditions and abhorrent behavior of Triple F Ferret Farm employees are a direct reflection of the exhibited lack of morals and personal standards of the supervisory staff and owners. Each and every person that walks through the doors of this cruelty "factory" is guilty of the most outrageous disrespect for life.

There is an ongoing, massive movement in the ferret community, world wide, to get laws & regulations changed so this atrocity is never, ever repeated and those involved are held accountable for their lack of action & concern for the life & basic needs of these living creatures.

As a concerned citizen and animal lover, I, for one, will not be quiet and tolerate such gross inhumanity. There are local, state and Federal laws regulating this facility, their operation, their intentional cruelty and neglect.

I pray that you share the outrage that myself and the entire world is feeling over the conditions and operations of The Triple F Ferret Farm and that you will take a direct stand against this by not only STOPPING all use of Triple F ferrets immediately, but also by HELPING the ferret community put an end to the horrendous treatment & practices going on at Triple F Farms.


Thank you for your support.

Sincerest Regards,


The undersigned.

      Please STOP purchasing ferrets for the cruel Triple F ferret farms.You are contributing to the extremely cruel and inhumane practices there, if you continue to purchase from them. I will encourage my friends to boycott your store, if you continue to purchase from Triple F ferret farm.

      These are small helpless loveable animals and do not deserve the treatment they are receiving.

      This place should be closed. Buy from them and you are condoning their actions.
