Current Shelter Population: 94
GCFA Shelter is Over-Run with Mustelids!
In response to this influx of ferrets, we are hosting an adoption event for Members only…
Special Adoption Dates and Times Have Been Added! Adoption days in August are Saturday, Sunday, and Thursdays.
Your adoption fee is $20.
Your adoption fee is $40.
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.
The GCFA Board of Directors (BOD) currently has two open Director positions. We are seeking current GCFA members who are interested in volunteering to fill these positions which ends in April 2015. Candidates interested in a position on the BOD must have the time to commit to the position. These positions are vital to keeping the shelter open caring for homeless ferrets. Board members, in addition to any volunteering at the shelter shall be responsible for:
- Determining the organization's mission and purpose.
- Provide proper financial oversight. (Budgeting/planning)
- Ensure adequate resources. (Make sure things can get done.)
- Ensure effective organizational planning. (Are programs in place to further the mission and goals of the organization?)
- Enhance the organization's public standing. (This is telling the world about the organization and recruiting new members and support.)
- Determine, monitor, and strengthen the organization's programs and services. (Managing overall operations including fund raising.)
- Support the board president and the shelter director.
The Greatest Ferret Show On Earth #26 planning is in full swing!

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.
