Our History

To help pay our growing expenses, we undertake a number of fundraising activities. These include:

* Product Sales
* Donations (cash, pennies, Canadian Tire money, ferret products and garage sale items)
* Annual Membership dues.
* Special Events, such as concerts and Take The Plunge!.

As with all other volunteer organizations, we would not exist without the dedication of our members and the generosity of our supporters!
