We would like to thank you for your patience in 2 main areas. First, due to the stay-at-home orders in our area, we have temporarily suspended all adoptions.  In addition to following these local orders, this decision is for the protection not only of our potential adopters, but also for the protection of our ferrets and our members, since all of our ferrets are housed in private homes.  Also, we are working to rework our website so it will be more user-friendly. Thank you for your patience with these matters.  Feel free to contact us by phone at (913) 596-0600 or by email at  You can also join our Facebook group, Kansas City Ferret Hotline Association.

Our Dear Friend and Longtime Member, June Phipps

We mourn the loss of our very dear friend, June Phipps.  Our sincere condolences go out to June's family and friends.  June was truly an amazing woman and was one of a kind. The following information is from her family:  
Joyce June Phipps (Smith), age 73, of Independence Missouri crossed the Rainbow Bridge Wednesday, March 13th, 2019.
She was born the daughter of Emery Aaron Smith and Greta Verlee (Henry) on June 25th, 1945 in Macon Missouri. She happily spent her entire childhood there, attending school, making lifelong friendships, and surrounded by her loving family. At age 18 she moved to Kansas City to join her brother and best friend, Dwayne Smith. There she began her career at Southwestern Bell while also attending Penn Valley college for 2 years before meeting and marrying Stanley Kermit Phipps on July 29th, 1972. She is survived by her husband Stanley, daughter Angela Dawn Korbin, stepson Quay Alan Phipps, grandson Harley Kunzler, sister Wanda Mackenzie, and several loving nieces and nephews.
Junebug's beautiful loving soul touched everyone around her. She was always there for her friends, family and any animal that ever crossed her path. Her enjoyment of life, good music, the Kansas City Chiefs, her swimming pool, and volunteering for The Kansas City Ferret Hotline radiated to anyone near her. The world is a better place for so many because she was in our lives.
