How Odie got his name...
On Friday October 8, 2010 a call came in to the Greater Chicago Ferret Association about a ferret that was dumped at pet store and would we be willing to take it? Of course the answer was yes and ironically the pet store was right around the corner from the show venue of our annual Greatest Ferret Show On Earth. A volunteer went to pick up this ferret and brought him back to, The Odeum, where the GCFA was doing set-up in preparation for the show the next day. There was some brainstorming on what his name should be, but in the end, Odie stuck. Volunteers adopted Odie and gave him his forever home. Our beloved Odie represented, in a nutshell, what the GCFA was all about: Educating the public on ferrets as pets, rescue, and most importantly forever homes.
Odie has enjoyed doing Meet the Ferrets events, is a certified therapy ferret and has his own Facebook account so friend him: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002716407023
