Two Special Ferrets for One Special Home

Cheree

 

Checkita and Cheree have had a rough couple of years and we are determined to find a home that will give them that extra special care.

Checkita: I’m a nice, chunky 4 1/2 year old Silver Mitt girl with a beautiful gray coat, white bib and a tiny white blaze.  Wherever you go, I’m right there checking on what you are doing and wanting to be with you.  Don’t turn around too quickly because I’m right behind you, closer than your shadow.  And at the end of the day, should you decide to nap, I love to curl up in your lap and give a big sigh of contentment as I snuggle in.  I do have a medical condition that doesn’t slow me down now, but means I need a really dedicated owner to be sure I get my medicine each day and proper medical care for life.  My foster dad says every ferret is special, but there are also very rare extra special ones and he says I’m one of those.

Cheree: I’m a beautiful 4 1/2 year old Dark Sable girl with almost black forearms and back legs.  If “Sherlock” or “Livewire” were girls names, they’d be mine as I want to investigate – there is so much world out there for one little ferret to check out.  Got a hard rubber ferret toy?  It’s instantly gone to my hidey place…along with a few pieces of kibble.  And if there is another ferret around, I immediately start “dooking” and want to groom it.  Your lap may be good for a 30 second pet, then I just have to go explore again.  I do have a couple mast cell tumors.  No big deal but I need an owner who will put ointment on them if they occasionally flare up.

Medical Issues: Checkita was diagnosed with early adrenal and was given a melatonin implant on Dec, 2014.  An ultrasound showed a mass in front of her heart and enlarged lymph nodes leads us to believe she has Lymphoma.  Checkita is on 1 mg Prednisone twice daily and will need continual treatment for her Adrenal Disease.  Ferret Dreams Rescue’s Medical Fund will pay for all medical expenses for life!

Medical Issues: Cheree needs only Tresaderm on her Mast Cell Tumors only if irritated or inflamed.  Again, Ferret Dreams Rescue’s Medical Fund will pay for all medical expenses for life!

Spa Day with Mile High Ferret Club – Spring Cleaning of Sorts

The Mile High Ferret Club, which is run by Ferret Dreams Rescue & Adoption, is the largest ferret club around.  On Sunday, April 19th, the club members and guests were treated to a wonderful demonstration by Heather Pittman, friend and Board Member for Ferret Dreams Rescue.  Heather’s presentation was well received, especially since she brought her two beautiful ferrets, Keiko and Buzz,  to help with the demonstrations.  Heather’s presentation focused on ears, teeth, lymph nodes, bathing and nail trimming.  She emphasized how important regular maintenance can help keep your ferret clean, fresh and healthy.

Heather gave out a lot of freebies like shampoo, nail clippers, cotton swabs for those who answered her questions correctly.  Heather also put together 3 beautiful Spa Baskets that were given away to 3 lucky ticket holders.  Matthew from Ferret Dreams sweetened the pot by giving away art work, hammocks, bedding and lots of other fun ferret stuff, all for free.

The ferrets really enjoyed playing in the two giant kiddie pools filled with blue shredded paper.  A giant Goldfish also was a favorite with the ferrets to play and even take a short nap in.

We want to thank Heather for taking the time with her presentation, Belinda Poirier for coordinating the event and for all the volunteers who helped set up and clean up.  We’ll see you next month!

Here are a few pics from the Event:

I’m on Adoption Hold: Claudia

Claudia

Claudia

Claudia was abandoned in an apartment and turned in to Adams County Animal Shelter.    She was transferred to Ferret Dreams in the hopes of finding a good home for her.  She is one of the most mellow, sweetest ferrets you’ll ever meet.  She is a little shy around other ferrets but seems interested none the less.  It would be best if she found a home with another very laid back mellow ferret.  Otherwise, a home with no other ferrets may be an option.  She is a Dark-Eyed White female with a little black smudge on her nose.

If you are interested in Claudia, please contact us.  All adoptions are subject to approval.

We’re Adopted: Butter & Toast

buttertoastadoption 005

These two young ferrets have found their forever home.  We want to thank Kyle & Carolyn for giving them a new home.  The boys went home with a big cage, a couple play tubes, bedding and lots of other goodies.  We wish them all the very best!

Butter and Toast are only 5 months old and they must go to their loving home together.  Butter is a lighter Panda color and Toast is a Dk. Sable.  Both are boys and they sure act like it.  They are very friendly, playful and still exploring their new world.  They have been on a whole prey diet in addition to their kibble.  Their whole prey diet consists of mice, chicks and sometimes quail.   The prey is frozen and after about a 2 hour thaw, ready to eat.  We would prefer them to stay on this diet but it is something that we will discuss with potential adopters.

We’re Available: Rocky and Felix

rockyfelix2
Rocky (gray) and Felix (brown) are two super happy, friendly, playful ferrets. They love to run through tubes, dig in a rice box, go for towel rides, play hide & seek, or just simply romp around with you. They both get along well with their humans and other fuzzies. They are also very affectionate and give lots of kisses or enjoy a good cuddle session with you and some blankets. They are both in excellent health, no know medical conditions. They are both fairly young – Rocky is 2 1/2 and Felix is 2. They are absolutely bonded to one another so they need to be adopted out together. They are ready to bring lots of smiles and loves to your home.

Over 25 raffle items were given away including bedding, artwork, jewelry and our grand raffle item, a GoPro Hero.  We raised $916.00 for our medical fund which allows us to take care of all the sick and elderly ferrets in our no-kill facility.  The medical fund also provides care for all the ferrets adopted out with a pre-existing medical condition.
