The Mile High Ferret Club is ready to kick off 2017 with a Boot Scootin Party. So dust off those Cowboy hats and boots and get ready for a Western Stock Show especially for ferrets plus another great raffle to benefit the Ferret Dreams Medical Fund.

Our giant playpen will be converted into a western rodeo extravaganza. We will also have a Western Jail Photo Booth for picture taking. The Sheriff will be in town to provide pictures of you and your ferrets in jail.

Speaking of Jail, if you have a ferret is aggressive with other ferrets, please do not bring to the event. Any bully ferrets will be confined to a Time Out Playpen or Carrier. Please do not stress your ferret or other ferrets. Same goes with any ferrets who aren’t feeling well. Please keep aggressive and/or sick ferrets at home.

Ferret Dreams has another great raffle with ferret themed prizes for you and your ferrets. The “Big Ticket” prize is a brand new Ferret Nation Habitat Model 182 Double Unit valued at $275.00. Tickets will be $5 each or 4 for $15.

Santa Visits the Mile High Ferret Club

On Nov 20th, the Mile High Ferret Club had its annual Holiday Party and Raffle to benefit Ferret Dreams Rescue. It was a packed house with ferrets playing in their own winter wonderland playpen. Some of the ferrets were naughty, picking on other ferrets, but most were nice since Santa was in the House!<-

Ferret Dreams Rescue had a huge raffle and many of our guests left with great prizes for their ferrets and for themselves. The raffle raised $983.00 for the medical fund at Ferret Dreams Rescue. Nico Baker was the big winner of the Birch Tree and Hand-Painted Ornaments. Thanks to all who purchased tickets to support the only no-kill ferret rescue in Colorado.

Santa arrived just in time to have pictures taken with all the ferrets in attendance. Santa sat patiently as our guest Photographer Sherrie Escue captured the magic.

We wish everyone a safe and blessed Holiday from Matthew and Lee at Ferret Dreams Rescue.

Christie – DreamAngel for Pepper 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.

If you would like more information about our DreamAngel program, please contact us at matthew@ferretdreams.org
