Our Valentine’s Party was Heart-Filled Fuzzy Fun!

This is Colorado so as the snow fell outside, our hearts were warmed inside by lots of Fuzzy Love!  Over 30 ferrets joined us for our Valentine’s Party.  The Playpen was filled with Rose Petals, Helium Balloons and lots of other fun toys for the ferrets.

Our guests were treated to an awesome potluck complete with a Chocolate Fountain with dipping treats like Strawberries, Bananas, Rice Krispy Treats and Cheese Cake.  We also had a Punch fountain to quench our thirst.  Every guest received a Valentine Gift Bag filled with Candy for them and a Ferret Heart Decal and 2 Ferret Toys.

The highlight of the afternoon were the Ferret Games.  For $5, our guests played 3 games for prizes.  It seems like the “Heart A-Stack” game gave our guests the biggest challenge.  However, no one walked away without a prize.  Finally, we closed the afternoon with a Mini-Raffle of beautifully hand-painted original pieces.  Lots of winners, all day long.

Special thanks to those who helped with setup and cleanup.  Thank you Stephanie Minck for the wonderful pictures and finally thanks to Belinda Poirier for another awesome party!  Here are a few pics from our event:

Super Bowl Party & Raffle – Great start to 2015

What a way to kick off 2015 with a Super Bowl Party and Raffle. We had great weather, a great crowd and lots of new faces joining us. We raised $888.20 for our Building Fund which brings our balance to $30,628.09!

Congratulations to all the raffle winners especially Michelle and Randy who won the “Mystery Box”. They won a $150 Gift Certificate from Drs. Foster & Smith for all their ferret supplies and a $50 Target Gift Card for themselves.

The ferrets had their version of “Puppy Bowl” with only a few penalties, off sides and unsportsmanlike conduct. There was plenty of food to share, just like a real tailgate party!

We’d like to welcome the following new members who joined the Mile High Ferret Club:

It’s a Very Merry Caylee Christmas!

Every year, Christmas falls on December 25th but the Spirit of Christmas is more than just 1 day.  Christmas is a Mood, a expression of Love and Hope, a Season of Giving and Sharing.  This year, Ferret Dreams placed only 9 ferrets on the Ferret Giving Tree so that other ferrets from other rescues would have a better chance of being picked and receiving much needed supplies, toys, bedding and monetary donations from their Santas.  That meant that about 20 of our permanent residents weren’t on the Ferret Giving Tree this past year.

One day, Caylee Montgomery, who has adopted several ferrets from Ferret Dreams Rescue, was visiting and we were discussing why we had only placed 9 ferrets on the Giving Tree this year.  She was moved to hear why we had placed only 9 ferrets and in her heart, wanted to do something special for the other 20+ permanent residents here at the rescue.

Several weeks later, a few packages arrived with a variety of bedding for our ferrets.  If that wasn’t enough, Caylee arrived on Saturday, January 10th with a half dozen boxes filled with more bedding and toys.  There were over 50 items including hammocks, sleep sacks and blankets.  In another huge box was an endless supply of crochet eggs of various shapes and sizes, including the giant crochet egg that is already a popular toy here at the rescue.  And if that wasn’t enough, Caylee baked some home made Christmas Cookies and included a bottle of wine for Matthew and Lee.

We want to thank Caylee for taking it upon herself and making Christmas extra special this year at Ferret Dreams Rescue.  She has a heart of Gold for our ferrets, especially the elderly and sick ones.  On this special visit, she got to spend some valuable time with these special ferrets.

A Very Merry Caylee Christmas Indeed!  Here are a few pics:
