David for Ferret Dreams Rescue

I grew up in California which is one of the few places that ferrets are, unfortunately, still illegal. I met my wife, Kira, in college there and we’ve been happily married since 2000. We moved to Colorado in 2002. When I’m not working from home as a software testing team lead, I love to be out hiking and camping.

Over the last 10 plus years we have had over 25 ferrets, although not all at one time. We have had as many as 12 at once though. They have all been rescues, all but two of them from Ferret Dreams. I think they are engaging little creatures and can be wonderful pets for the right person. They are not for everyone, but when it’s the right fit they bring so much joy.

I want to spread the word about our furry little friends. The rescue has done an astounding job with what they have, but I hope to assist in the further growth of the organization. Kira and I have helped, mostly behind the scenes, with the wine and cheese event from the second year on. I want to keep the event growing every year!
