Carpet Shark Week with Mile High Ferret Club

It’s Carpet Shark week with the Mile High Ferret Club. Join the fun as we convert our giant playpen to a shark tank for all your “Carpet Sharks” to play in. As you know, ferrets are sometimes called Carpet Sharks because of the way they slither under bankets, rugs or anything laying on the floor. 

There will be games to play with a chance to win some fun prizes for you and your ferrets.

We are having a Potluck so bring something yummy to share. The Mile High Ferret Club will provide refreshments and desserts.

Admission is free for Mile High Ferret Club Members
Admission for non-members or guests of members is $10 per person.

When: Sunday, August 20th from 1pm – 3pm

Where: Lakeview Event Center: 7864 W. Jewell Ave., Lakewood, Colorado 80232

Bring only healthy and non-aggressive ferrets.  Ferrets will be removed from playpen if showing signs of illness or aggressive to other ferrets.

Summer BBQ was Sizzlin!!!

Our Summer BBQ and Raffle with the Mile High Ferret Club was our biggest event of the Summer.  The giant playpen was converted into a Summer Beach complete with Ball Pits and Palm Trees.  Over 50 ferrets joined us for the fun.  

Mile High Ferret Club Members Dawn Larson and Brian Bettger worked tirelessly for several days to cater the event.  They provided Pulled Pork, Smoked Turkey, Brisket and Smoked Mac & Cheese.  All our guests left with full stomachs and content hearts.

Ferret Dreams Rescue had another awesome raffle with over 25 items.  Thanks to the support of our guests, Ferret Dreams raised $1,064.00 for the Medical Fund.  Winners took home TShirts, Ferret Bedding, Artwork, Jewelry, Wooden Signs and much more.  Our grand prize was won by Michelle and Randy who took home our Summer BBQ Package complete with Cooler, BBQ Accessories, Apron, Yard Game and a $100 Target Gift Card.

Special thanks to Brian and Dawn for the delicious BBQ
