We at the GCFA want to send a very special thank you to Drs. Thomas Torres and Kayla Golan from Ness Exotic Wellness Center for all their hard work and time in making sure all of our ferrets and foster ferrets received thorough dental cleanings and treatments on Sunday, April 6, 2014! This was a great learning experience for all of us at the GCFA and each and every fuzzy we have enjoys having clean teeth again.

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:
PO Box 3
Lyons, IL 60534
PLEASE NOTE: These calendars will not be exposed to the canine distemper virus in any way they are being housed offsite at a separate location. They are 100% safe to purchase and handle!
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.
