Current Shelter Population: 94
BRING A FERRET HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!!
GCFA Shelter currently has over 100 adoptable and foster able ferrets ready to go home with you for the holidays!
We will be offering discounted adoption rates! Call the shelter at 708.442.8650 with any questions and to make your adoption appointment to pick out a new friend- and save a life! Find out more about the adoption process here.
If you help just one ferret by giving them a forever home, you are really helping two or more as we would then have space to save another life. The GCFA has a list of people waiting to surrender their ferrets. In some cases, when we get to their name on the list, it is too late for the ferret.
This very festive event is FREE for everyone. Even if you are not a member of the GCFA, you can attend. Even if you don’t have ferrets, you can attend. Please bring your family and friends. Your ferrets are also invited, provided they are current with distemper vaccine. Please have a comfortable cage or carrier for your ferrets to relax in.
We will have some fun games for you and your ferrets to participate in. You can dress up your ferret and participate in the costume contest. There will be prizes for the winners of the ferrety games. You will be able to shop at the GCFA sales tables for a special ferrety gift.
There will be a pot luck luncheon for you to enjoy also. If you can, bring a dish for everyone to enjoy. GCFA will provide the refreshments.
Last but not least, the GCFA will have our large raffle of wonderful items. As always, all the money from the raffle and GCFA sales table goes to keep the shelter ferrets healthy and happy, while they wait and dream of a forever home.
The holiday season is the perfect time to get together with your fellow ferret friends to share the joy and love of having all of these fantastic ferrets as companions in our lives. Please come to join in the fun and celebrate!!!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM THE GCFA!!!

Ferret lovers are collecting aluminum cans to raise money for the GCFA with the help of the Frank Family. How so? Rather than just dropping your aluminum cans in your city recycle bin, please save your cans for the little fuzzies at GCFA!
The first collection date will be Saturday, March 31st and then the last Saturday of each month after that. You can drop off your collected cans at the Frank House, which is located at 1128 Crimson Ct., Naperville, IL and they will bring them to the recycling center and give the money to the GCFA. If the Frank Family is not home when you come, please just leave the cans securely bagged in front of their garage. The Frank family is also looking for others to volunteer their home to be a collection center for aluminum cans for the GCFA as well.

Kisses from all the Woozles at the GCFA Shelter and a sincere thank you goes out to all of you who can help!
P.S. Please do not drop cans off at the GCFA shelter, there just is not enough room! Moreover, if you are interested in keeping the tabs off of your cans for other donation purposes, such as the Ronald McDonald House Charities, please feel free to do so as the GCFA is more concerned about collecting the actual cans for recycling.
