On Sunday, October 26th, the Mile High Ferret Club had its annual Halloween Party and Costume Contest.  We had a great crowd and everyone was definitely in the Halloween Spirit!  The giant playpen was converted into a spooky and haunted play area.  Ferrets roamed through an empty coffin filled with confetti, plastic body parts and even a giant spider overlooking the playpen.

The Mile High Ferret Club provided ferret cake pops which were almost too cute to eat.  All our guests brought snacks, finger food (not human fingers) and treats to share.  As always, the club provided drinks and Apple Cider for this special event.

Ferret Dreams Rescue introduced Peanut, a ferret who was found as a stray, to meet everyone.  He turned on his charm and cuteness and was adopted out that day to Paul and Tracy Kula.  Congratulations on your new addition.

Below are pictures of our fun-filled event.  Stay tuned for information about next months Holiday Party including a huge raffle to benefit Ferret Dreams Rescue and a visit from Santa Claus!

DreamAngels visit Cornflake & Thyme

Cornflake and Thyme have very unique names but they are two of the sweetest permanent residents here at Ferret Dreams.  Both have Insulinoma and we’re keeping everything under control with daily and monthly medications.   Thanks to their DreamAngels, we are able to provide for them the daily care and medications that they need.

Cornflake was recently visited his DreamAngel Janean.  They spent some very valuable one on one time together.  They played with toys for a while and then spent some time just being held and loved.  Janean brought Cornflake several cases of Gerbers Baby Food.  Cornflake gets a jar of baby food daily for the additional protein that he needs as he battles Insulinoma.  Thank you Janean for visiting Cornflake and being such a loving DreamAngel.

Colleen visited Thyme on a beautiful fall day.  It was so beautiful that they spent most of their time together outside in the backyard of Ferret Dreams.  They played in the cool grass, rolled in the leaves and enjoyed the fresh air all around.  Colleen and Thyme are a great match.  Colleen hasn’t had ferrets around for a while and really enjoys the DreamAngel program so she can still have ferrets in her life.  Thank you Colleen for taking such good care of Thyme.

We’re Adopted: Taz, Dude and Romeo

3 Ferrets were adopted recently from Ferret Dreams Rescue.

Romeo & Dude were adopted by Holly in Colorado Springs.  Holly adopted a ferret from Ferret Dreams Rescue several years ago and just recently, her ferret Coda, passed away.  Holly immediately felt an emptiness in her home and really wanted ferrets back into her life.  She visited with Romeo and really liked his sweet disposition.  The deal was set when Romeo gave Holly lots of ferret kisses.  We knew Romeo got along with other ferrets and so we paired him up with Dude, another sweet ferret who loved to play.  Dude and Romeo hit it off and Holly now has two active and spunky ferrets to liven up her home.

Taz came in as a single ferret and we immediately realized that he liked other ferrets but didn’t know how to play and interact with them since he was alone most of his life.  After a week or so, he learned how to behave and play like a regular ferret.  Ben and Laurelin thought he would be a good match for their male ferret Boh.  They brought Boh, along with their 2 female ferrets to meet Taz.  All of them got along splendidly and the adoption was finalized.  We want to thank Ben and Laurelin for giving Taz not only a home but a home with other ferrets to play and cuddle with.

Ferret Dreams Rescue gives Seminar to Vet Tech Students

Matthew & Lee, Directors of Ferret Dreams Rescue along with Stephanie Minck recently took a trip up to Ft. Collins to give a Seminar to the Vet Tech Students at Front Range Community College.

Matthew spoke about Ferret Dreams Rescue & Adoption.  He shared with the students how the rescue began, the Medical Fund that helps all the sick and injured ferrets at the rescue and our goal to one day have our own shelter building.  Stephanie shared the joys of living with ferrets, diet, treats & toys and how to ferret proof your home for a safe and fun environment for your ferrets.  Finally,  Lee gave all the medical information with regards to most common illnesses, diseases and treatments for ferrets.  He shared with the group how to administer first aid for certain situations and emphasized the importance of preventive medical care.  Afterwards, the students were given hands on experience with ferrets brought from Ferret Dreams and Stephanie’s personal ferrets.  The class was able to administer meds with a syringe (medications were replaced with water).  They checked heart rates, temperatures, learned how to scruff and even clip nails.

The students were all very receptive, engaging and really enjoyed having the ferrets visit.  We want to thank Front Range Community College for allowing us to share our experience and knowledge with their students.

Finally, special thanks to Champ, MauMau, Sugar, SnotFace  and Remy for being such cooperative ferrets!
