The International Ferret Congress (IFC) is a non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Ohio. We have been granted tax-exempt status under section 501⁠(c)⁠(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The IFC is an outgrowth of the International Ferret Symposium Committee, which sponsored the Ferrets 2002 Symposium in Las Vegas, February 1-3, 2002. That event brought together over 135 ferret owners, shelter operators, club members, veterinarians, and breeders, to learn the latest in ferret health care and husbandry, and to share our love of ferrets. See our Mission Statement for more information.

Events Past and Future

The IFC has hosted Ferret Symposia and Forums around the US – starting with Las Vegas in 2002 and the latest in Phoenix in 2011. Other locations include Atlanta, St. Louis, Portland OR and Pittsburgh.

We are using our experience in planning these events to help a group host the 2014 Alaska Gathering for Ferrets.
