St. Patrick’s Day Party & Raffle – $916.00 Raised for Medical Fund

On an unusually warm Winter Day, the Mile High Ferret Club gathered for the St. Patrick’s Day Party and Raffle to benefit Ferret Dreams Rescue’s Medical Fund.  Over 40 ferrets participated on our giant playpen filled with pots of gold, giant beer mugs and lots and lots of shamrocks!  Our guests enjoyed a delicious potluck, Irish music and participated in another grand raffle for the rescue.

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.

Below are a few of the great pics from our St. Patrick’s Day Party & Raffle:

DreamAngels wrap their wings around Titan

Rachelle and Ian Barbato, are two fairly new ferrants (ferret parents) who recently moved from California where ferrets are illegal.  They quickly searched for ferret organizations in Colorado and found Ferret Dreams Rescue and the Mile High Ferret Club.  After receiving the MHFC Newsletter, they read about Titan, our blind permanent resident which was transferred from the Denver Dumb Friends League and immediate knew they wanted to be a part of this great program.  On February 28th, Rachelle and Ian visited Titan at Ferret Dreams Rescue.  They spent some valuable time with him which is such an important part of this program.  We want to thank them for spending a Saturday afternoon with Titan and the other permanent residents here at Ferret Dreams.

Below is their write-up on why they wanted to be DreamAngels for Titan”

Matthew & Lee,
First and foremost, we are animal lovers and our heartstrings are tugged at when we see an animal in need.  We recently moved from a state California) which does not allow the companionship of ferrets, so when we moved here to Denver we knew that we would eventually get involved with them.  We came across your ferret club and chose to become members.
The reason we are choosing to become DreamAngels to a ferret in general and to one in specific (Titan) is because we do not have the time nor the resources in our current lives to do more than to care for our three own ferrets.  Yet, we recognize your sacrifice to the breed and outreach for assistance from others and we agreed together that we’d like to help where/when we can.
