Some of our past events are listed below

February 05, 2000:    Warm Fuzzy Frolic, Leesport, PA.  Metro Ferret Sponsored the Social Security Ferret Ring, and had a vendor table manned by volunteers, to raise money for ferret shelter support.  A great time was had by all!!

March 18, 2000:  NJ Animal Welfare Federation Conference, Somerset, NJ. Metro Ferret was invited to this wonderful education event.  We maintained a table manned by volunteers, and distributed more than 1500 copies of ferret care information.  A wonderful day, we met wonderful people, and were refreshed with innovative ideas for our cause, helping domestic ferrets.

March 25, 2000:  AFA Ferret Show, Pennsauken, NJ. Metro Ferret sponsored the Shelter Specialty Ring, so that all of those wonderful Shelter Ferrets won a ribbon that they so well deserve. Our Club's table was manned by a handful of great volunteers.  We met lots of great  people, handed out lots of ferret information, and had two nice raffles, a basket and a picture, which helped us raise funds to buy more supplies for the shelters. 

March 26, 2000:  Vaccination Clinic, Pet Co., Eatontown, NJ. Metro Ferret  attended this reduced price rabies/distemper clinic on Sunday, at 1:00.  Although we only met two or three ferret owners, we were successful in preventing a tragedy in the making.  A person who previously adopted from a shelter, and SIGNED A CONTRACT TO RETURN THE FERRETS TO THE SHELTER FOR ANY REASON, tried to give the ferrets away to a man with 4 highly aggressive pit bulls at home.  Two of our club members were on hand, and they intercepted this transaction just in time.  The ferrets are now safely back at the shelter, where the man should have brought them in the first place.  Please remember, you are liable to abide by a contract that you sign, and do the right thing.

April 8, 2000:  Bella Voce Singers sing for Shelter Support, Pompton Plains, NJ.  Our wonderful friend Tom Yates, and his group, Bella Voce, will be singing at the First Reformed Church to help support the shelters.  Tickets are $10.00 each.  Please contact us at 908.232.6237, if you are interested in purchasing a ticket.  For each ticket sold, we can help feed and shelter one ferret for one month.  Many thanks to Bella Voce!
