MEDIA RELEASE
September 15, 2008

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

MEDIA RELEASE

The Ferret Rescue Society of Ottawa and Area (FRSO) is proud to present its Fall Ferret Frolic in Room 203B at the Jack Purcell Centre* (320 Jack Purcell Lane at Elgin Street) on Saturday, November 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 Fall Ferret Frolic welcomes ferrets, their owners and curious onlookers to witness a variety of fun ferret competitions, have their ferret portrait photos taken, participate in a silent auction, view a display of FRSO's foster ferrets, ask ferret experts questions on ferret health and ownership, and shop for 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 was formed in 1998, 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 and adopted out 26.  18 ferrets passed away before finding a forever home. Currently, the group is caring for 52 ferrets. The FRSO does not receive any government grants and relies solely on donations and funds gathered from fundraising events. The Fall Ferret Frolic is one of the society’s biggest fundraisers.

Contact: Mary Beth Stanistreet, President


*Parking is available on Jack Purcell Lane and at the Elgin Street Public School off of Gilmour Street. For both lots, you must ask for a parking permit at the main desk of the community centre.

And now for the games!

Gift wrapping: Ferrets make great gifts!  How long does it take your little package of joy to get out of the wrappings?


Chimney slide: Aspiring Santa ferrets test their chimney-sliding skills in a twisty-turny race!


Tobogganing: Sliding down is only half the fun - how much havoc can your ferret create at the bottom?


Slalom - lead your ferret through our curvaceous course - best time wins!
