Mile High Ferret Club Holiday Party and Raffle – “O What Fun!”

The Mile High Ferret Club’s Annual Holiday Party and Raffle to benefit Ferret Dreams Rescue was such a fun event.  Over 50 ferrets played in the giant playpen, converted into a Winter Wonderland.  There were over 30 raffle items and just about everyone who purchased tickets won at least 1 item.  The raffle raised $980.00 for the Medical Fund at Ferret Dreams Rescue.

Special thanks to Belinda Poirier, our Events Coordinator, for another fantastic job of decorating our event hall.  Also, thanks to our club photographer, Stephanie Minck, for capturing the spirit of the Season through her pictures.

Thanks to Cris Davis for donating the Candy Gift Bags and finally, thanks to Santa for sharing the afternoon with our ferrets.

Below are a few pictures of our event:

Ferret FrightFest 2015 – 1 Word – Spooktacular!

The Mile High Ferret Club, in conjunction with Ferret Dreams Rescue held its annual Halloween Party and Ferret Costume Contest on October 18th.  This is always one of our more popular events and this years event was so much fun.  Many new guests and their ferrets joined us for an afternoon of treats, a delicious Potluck and of course, the costume contest.  The ferrets played in the giant playpen which was converted into a spooky dungeon complete with coffin.

The ferret costumes included Fairies, a Turkey, Viking, Superman, Dinosaur, the Wizard of Oz, and many more.  The judges had a very difficult time picking the best costumes of the day.  All in All, everyone got a prize for their costume plus a Trick or

Treat Box filled with Candy for the Humans and toys and clothing for the ferrets.

We can’t wait till next year!  Coming up next is our Holiday Party with Santa so stay tuned for more info.

Blessing of the Animals

Blessing of the Animals at Washington National Cathedral

Blessing of the Animals at Washington National Cathedral

It is traditional in many communities to take ones animals to the local church on October 4th, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, where the pastor blesses them, praying for their health and well being.
This year, Ferret Dreams Rescue is teaming up with Cavy Care, the guinea pig rescue, to help sponsor a Blessing of the Animals on Saturday, October 3rd at 1pm. The blessing will take place at St. Francis of Assisi Church at 556 S Jersey St, Denver, CO 80224.

Ferret owners, along with friends and family are welcome to bring their ferrets, as well as any other pets you might have from dogs to parakeets, to have them blessed. Please make certain that any animals you bring are under your control at all times, such as dogs on leashes, ferrets held or in carriers, etc. Also, you will be responsible to pick up any “accidents” while at the event.
Each family or participant is encouraged to donate $5 – $10 to the church. This beautiful church was recently vandalized and needs some extra financial support. Ferret Dreams will provide a play pen outside, weather permitting, for your ferrets to take a break in.
After the blessing of the animals, the church will host a Chili Cook-Off. For any questions about the Cook-Off, please contact St. Francis Church directly at 303.321.2141.

Please remember that neither the church or Ferret Dreams Rescue is responsible for your animals. If you plan on staying for the Cook-Off, make certain to arrange for your pet’s care as we will not be able to pet sit for them.
We hope you will join us and enjoy the flavor of the season with red or green chile and a blessing for your fuzzy family members. Any questions, call Lee at 303.733.0086 or email him
