MHFC Summer Beach Party and Raffle was Hot, Hot, Hot!

The Mile High Ferret Club had its annual Summer Beach Party and Raffle on July 20th.  Also, we decided to  make July our Member Appreciation Month so we can say thanks to all our members for supporting the club and Ferret Dreams Rescue.   And to say thanks, lunch was catered by Brad’s Pit BBQ.  Our guests were treated to Pulled Pork, Brisket, Spicy Sausage, Potato Salad, Baked Beans and Cole Slaw.  For dessert, we had Ice Cold Watermelon.  It was a hot July afternoon and yet we had one of our biggest crowds.  Ferret Dreams Rescue had another awesome raffle and gave away lots of great prizes for ferrets and ferret owners. Ferret Dreams raised over close to $800.00 to help all the ferrets that are sick and injured at the rescue.

Below are some pictures from the event.  More pictures are posted on our Facebook pages for Ferret Dreams Rescue & Adoption and the Mile High Ferret Club.

We Remember: Fiona

Update: Fiona suffered a heart attack and passed away at Ferret Dreams Rescue.  Matthew and Lee performed CPR with the hope of saving her.  Unfortunately, that wasn’t in the plans.  A necropsy was performed and it appears she suffered from Lymphoma of the Spine which caused her paralysis and also affected her heart.  We will miss her terribly!  We want to thank all her DreamAngels for caring for her while she was with us.

Fiona, our paralyzed ferret has touched the hearts of many people.  Soon after posting her story on our website and Facebook pages, many wanted to be a part of her life and become Ferret DreamAngels!  We want to thank Bob & Tiffany, Aiden and Heather and Ben and Laurelin for your involvement in her life through this wonderful program.

Below are their reasons for caring for Fiona.

Aiden and Heather write:

I have wanted to be a Dream Angel for you since I first found your rescue as I felt it is a way I can contribute to a purpose that I am personally passionate about, and it’s not a widely known about charity I would imagine, and the fact you are a “no kill” shelter is absolutely wonderful. Aiden & I became members of the Mile High Ferret Club in March so we could become a part of a community that loves their weasels and take them to have some ferret fun. While I’d love to have a dozen ferrets, it’s not possible and this is a way I can help these little creatures who are at our mercy for loving and caring for them. My 12 year old son Aiden and I now have my 6th & 7th ferrets, Buddy and Gus and they enrich our lives in so many ways. My first four “foofers” were; Leibschen, Amelia, Sasha, Nanook and Maja, and the first four passed from the usual ferret maladies, cardio-myopothy, insulonoma, and adrenal disease. Knowing these sweet-hearted little things are prone to these issues, I can imaging what it must take emotionally, physically and mentally and monetarily to support them, and this is a way I can do something to help, knowing exactly where the help is going to. I am grateful you have established a place where these sweet little souls can live as comfortable as possible for the rest of their days.Why did I choose Fiona? As soon as I saw your FB post about her, my heart just ached, and it hit close to home and I wanted to help her. My first ferret Leibschen was injured (a skull fracture, though he pulled through fine) and so I immediately felt impelled to want to love on her! They are hearty in many ways, but equally fragile, and I can imagine how she may be frustrated on not being able to get around the way she used to.

Ben and Laurelin write:
“Ben and Laurelin inherited Mumba from an owner who could no longer care for her.  After learning a few things about ferrets they realized they didnt want to
keep Mumba alone any longer and adopted two other lonely ferrets from owners who could no longer care for them.  Ben and Laurelin are very happy to have found
Ferret Dreams for the friendship, support, and advice which they have kindly offered.  Ben and Laurelin’s  small business includes Mumba, 6 years, Chile 5
years, and Boh, 3 years.  While at Ferret Dreams on a visit they met with Annie and Fiona who were each facing ongoing medical issues.  They were pleased and
encouraged to see the care and affection being offered to these vulnerable beings. Laurelin and Ben value the work people do to improve the lives of
animals in our culture, which is usually underappreciated.  They are thankful to know Matt and Lee and look forward to meeting the club soon.”
Bob & Tiffany write:
I was blessed to have had the opportunity to visit Fiona last Saturday.  She is an absolute sweetheart.  I found her to be curious, full of energy and downright adorable.  She’s gone through so much within a short amount of time, but still seems so positive and happy.  Quite an inspiration!
Thank you!
Bob and Tiffany Kellar

I’m Adopted: BooBoo

booadoptiondreamangel 056

On July 12th, the Olson Family visited BooBoo all the way from Colorado Springs.  BooBoo was on his best behavior and the Olson family felt that he was the perfect ferret for their family.  We want to thank them for thinking adoption first and for giving BooBoo a home filled with lots of excitement, fun and love.

BooBoo is a 4 year old sable male ferret who is looking for a home with no other ferrets.  He prefers the company of humans, someone who can give him a lot of attention and love.  He is extremely happy and playful with lots of energy to burn.  BooBoo would be perfect for a first time ferret owner or an experienced ferret owner who no longer has ferrets at home.

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