Please attend this very important meeting so you can place your vote to elect the 4 (four) board Officer positions. If you cannot attend the meeting, you can request an absentee ballot. To request an absentee ballot you must be an Active Member and your written request for an absentee ballot must be received/post marked before March 18, 2014. No requests for absentee ballots will be honored after the date of March 18, 2014.

The GCFA cannot take any requests for absentee ballots over the phone, via email or at the shelter site. You must be a member in good standing in order to receive a ballot and to place your vote. We will process your written request and mail out an absentee ballot to you with a pre-addressed/stamped envelope inside. The absentee ballot must be mailed back in the enclosed envelope and be post marked by April 05, 2014. Do not put a return address label on the envelope that is provided. Your ballot will remain anonymous and it will only be opened at the time of the election. If the ballot is sent back in a plain envelope, the ballot will have to be voided and will not be counted.
The GCFA needs you to vote, because as a member it is your right and obligation to make sure the people elected into these board positions always have the best interests of our shelter ferrets being first and foremost in their decision making. Again please attend the election meeting or request your absentee ballot.

2014 GCFA Calendars - Limited Edition
I am happy to announce that the 2014 GCFA Calendar is now officially available. All ferrets pictured are alumna from the GCFA. We are asking for a $15.00 donation in order to obtain a calendar. Please remember your donation goes to the care of GCFA ferrets currently at the shelter and in foster care.
You will be able to pick up the calendar at The Greatest Ferret Show On Earth on Saturday, October 12th. If you are planning on picking up a calendar.
If you can not make it to the Greatest Ferret Show On Earth, or you just want yours sooner, calendars will be available for shipping starting Tuesday, September 10th. If you are requesting your calendar be shipped, there is an additional shipping fee of $6.00. Payment can be made by check or money order (sorry, no PayPal), payable to GCFA. Once payment is received, your calendar will be shipped within that week.
Payment is to be sent to:

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.
