Glinda "Hello Santas,
You may remember me from last year. I came in with my best friend who had a large tumor on her belly. Rescue Mom never knew our names as our owner passed away before we all met. My poor friend, who Mom called Dorothy, passed this past summer. I miss her. I am battling a tumor in my belly but it is not as big. Mom says that with my insulinoma and adrenal disease that the vet worries I won’t wake up from the surgery. I already take prednisone daily – which I love the taste of – so I am considered “hospice” care. That is okay. We have great food here and occasionally Mom sneaks me a Bandit treat. She has to make sure I am the only one eating it as I share a house with Gus who cannot have the treats as they effect his seizures greatly.
This Christmas will be my 8th one. I sleep most of the time but so long as I have a blanket it is okay. Sometimes Squirt or Sox will come by but mostly I sleep by myself.
If you could afford it, I really need a Melatonin implant. But if not, a bag of Bandit treats and a soft little blanket would be sweet.
We all love the Giving Tree and appreciate all you Santas do.
Love Glinda.

Sammys Clubhouse Spokane Ferret Rescue

Sammy’s Clubhouse is the last remaining ferret rescue that serves Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. We do our best but we need support from the community to keep going.
We are fortunate that the rescues who have closed around us have donated many hammocks and cages. We wish they were staying around because this caused a huge influx in our hospice ferrets.
With these donations, this leaves us in need of medical funds and food for the almost 60 ferrets here. Only a third of our population are healthy enough to rehome. We really need melatonin implants which can be purchased from Support Our Shelters at a drastically reduced price. Because of the age of most of our ferrets, they really could use a good dental cleaning which averaging in price of 75-150. Then our kids need food.
We feed Drs Foster and Smith ferret food, Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost chicken (cat food), Zupreem, Marshalls and they go through a large supply of Marshall's Uncle Jim's Duk Soup along with Ferretone (8 in 1 Skin and Coat Supplement).
Of course the ferrets all love Totally Ferret Turkey Venison and Lamb, Orijen cat and kitten or FROMM chicken or duck.
Then for treats the ferrets like Nbones Chicken and Marshall Bandit treats, chicken is the most popular flavor.

The shelter also would like any of the following items which help support additional shelters:
Dr T’s Amazing Ferret Fixins Soup Mix –
Pooppin’ Pumpkin. Found at
Pickle Juice (better than Ferretone) -

Thank you all
