MEDIA RELEASE

Ferret Rescue Society of Ottawa and Area presents the Spring 2008 Ferret Frolic!

MEDIA RELEASE

The Ferret Rescue Society of Ottawa and Area (FRSO) is proud to present its Spring Ferret Frolic in McNabb Park (corner of Bronson and Gladstone) on Sunday, June 1, 2008, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. This annual event is presented by the FRSO to help educate ferret owners and the general public about these wonderful pets and to raise funds for the society.

The Spring Ferret Frolic welcomes ferrets, their owners and curious onlookers to witness a variety of fun ferret competitions. Tube races, best ferret pirate costume, walk the plank, treasure hunt and swab the deck are among this year’s events.  Additional highlights include a silent auction, a display of FRSO's foster ferrets, opportunities to ask ferret experts questions on ferret health and ownership, sales tables with a large assortment of pet accessories, items for ferret owners and both human and ferret treats.  Proceeds from this event are used by the FRSO to help continue their rescue efforts.  Please note that all ferrets attending this event must have received a negative ADV test result within the past year.

The FRSO became a registered non-profit corporation in the winter of 2002 and a registered Canadian charity in 2006. Its mandate is to care for unwanted, abandoned or abused ferrets. It is the only animal rescue group in the Ottawa area that aids ferrets in need. Ferrets are rehabilitated and given any medical attention they require. Those that are healthy enough are adopted out to carefully screened new families. All others become long-term residents of the group at special foster homes. The FRSO has a no kill policy. The only exception is when it is medically impossible to treat or heal a ferret that is suffering.

Each year the FRSO takes in and adopts out more ferrets as it becomes more recognized and well known. In 2007, the FRSO took in 62 ferrets, adopted out 26.  18 ferrets passed away before finding a forever home. Currently, the group is caring for 47 ferrets. The FRSO does not receive any government grants and relies solely on donations and funds gathered from fundraising events. The Spring Ferret Frolic is one of the society’s biggest fundraisers.

Good news x 2!

First, Dr. Daren Auger will be staffing the Health Tent and will answer your questions on ferret health (for a donation of course)!

Second, there will be ferret cookies!  We have approval to sell baked goods and Maureen has promised to bring lots of her delicious ferret cookies!

On another note, we're starting to assemble our auction items. 

ITEM # 1 is a Duck Soup Kit complete with a Cuisinart SmartPower 500 Watt 7-Speed Electric Blender and all the ingredients needed to make your first batch of duck soup.

ITEM # 2 is a Marshalls Mansion cage, all decked out with special goodies from Dizzy Critter Creations and an extra middle insert so the cage can be divided in two like a Ferret Nation.

More details will be posted in a week or so.
