there are 2 albino squirels in the park just down the road from me, i've seen them around for a few years (although i don't know the average life span of a squirel so there could be more than 2) i live in the uk just south of london.

There is a town in the usa which is full of them. Due to distant cross breeding no doubt. The local police insignia badge even features it.

Not to far from where I live is a town known for its white/albino squirrels. It is the town of Marionville, Missouri. It is not very big at all, but it has several white squirrels.
