You should be able to find them at Petco if they have them in Il. The other option is looking into ferret rescues, which I would recommend first. Do a web search and see if there are available in your area, and try that route.
I would guess first that you would need permission first. Wild animals are fairly protected when it comes to this sort of situation. Depends on where you life as well.
