Halloween Party Pics – Mile High Ferret Club

Sunday, October 23rd was a perfect day for all our ferret friends and guest to celebrate Halloween with a Party and Costume Contest for the ferrets.  Over 40 ferrets enjoyed playing in the giant playpen which was converted into a scary dungeon complete with coffin and other scary stuff.

The contest was judged by Miss Sherrie Escue who had the most difficult task of all, picking the best ferret costume.   All the ferrets that participated won a prize!  Prizes consisted of Halloween themed Artwork, Bedding and Jewelry.

The top 5 Winners were:

1st Place: Waffles & Dusty as Cheech and Chong

2nd Place: Hannah & Harley as Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf

3rd Place: Bandit and Snow as Batman and Robin

4th Place: Pinkerton as Ducktales and Pirate

5th Place: Bandit as a Bunny

We want to thank all our guests for a wonderful party.  Special thanks to Jim and Sherrie for the great photos and the cupcakes.  Belinda Poirier and volunteers for setting up and decorating the Hall.  Staci Lombardi, Heather Pittman and Matthew and Lee for donating the prizes.  Finally, thanks to all who stayed afterwards to help clean up.

Christie – DreamAngel for Pepper and Charlie

Christie and Charlie

Christie and Charlie


Christie contacted us recently about our DreamAngel program.  Christie adopted a ferret named Moe from Ferret Dreams back in 2007.  Moe has since passed away and Christie wanted to be a part of a ferrets life again and thought that the best way for her was to become a DreamAngel.  This is what Christie wrote:

I wanted to become a Dream Angel because I wanted to support Ferret Dreams on a regular basis and loved the option of visiting a ferret occasionally. I choose to sponsor Pepper and Charlie. I liked that Pepper and I came to Ferret Dreams on the same weekend. Her story really touched my heart and I look forward to hearing about her progress at Ferret Dreams Rescue.

I also choose Charlie. He was white which reminded me of one of my former ferrets, Nikki, so I wanted to sponsor him in memoriam of my sweet little ol’ guy. When we went outside for pictures Matthew mentioned it was his first time outside. I would like to visit Charlie again and give him some more fun outdoor playtime and his favorite salmon treats.

Ferret Dreams holds a special place in my heart. Although I am not in a place in my life where I can provide a forever home, I can contribute to those in need and I appreciate this local, non-profit charity that supports a cause I find very worthy.

Pepper is a 1 1/2 yr old ferret who was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma on her lower spine  She is unable to use her hind legs and must be expressed several times a day due to her inability to urinate on her own.  She is on steroids to held with her disease and pain relievers to make her more comfortable.

Charlie is a 5 year old ferret who recently lost his cagemate Tobey unexpectedly.  Charlie seems a little lost and lonely but we will do our best to give him the extra love and attention he deserves.

6th Annual Wine & Cheese Benefit Was Huge Success – $18,818.24

Over 125 guests gathered at the Hilton Garden In for our 6th Annual Wine and Cheese Benefit for our Medical Fund.  Guests were treated to an open bar with domestic wines and beers, Cheese and Fruit Platters and live music by Dan and Yoshi.

The crowd was thoroughly engaged with our auctioneer Jim Berz from Wow Events Denver.  He had the crowd laughing and bidding, cheering and applauding during the games, the live auction and the plea for donations.

We want to thank all who attend, the bidders and donors and also those who were unable to attend but donated anyway.

With your help, many ferrets will receive the medical attention they deserve.  Below are a few pictures from the event.
