Mercury "Dear Santas, they named me Mercury here at the rescue. They say it is a tribute to Freddie Mercury as I was ""found"" on Queen Street. This is my second Christmas here and so far life is well but I am starting to lose some hair. Rescue mom says I probably have Adrenal Disease but she promises the tumors are nothing like the ones that were on my tail. You see I got lost from my original home. I never got to see my old ferret buddy again. I spent weeks wandering around backyards then someone picked me up and took me to what Mom says is Animal Control. I was so weak, eaten alive by fleas and ear mites. Plus I had no idea what the food they were trying to feed me was. It was loud and frightening there.
Mom came got me when I was sleeping, it was all I did. She got me the treatment to get rid of the biting insects then removed a painful tumor on my tail.
I miss my old friend but my new friend, Chip, is pretty cool. We have a couple kids we hang out with.
Mom says I need a Melatonin Implant but I prefer some treats. Or some great food like Totally Ferret Turkey Venison Lamb. That is great stuff. Ferretone is also the best!
We all sure love what the Santa’s send. Last year we got a huge box full of packing “peanuts”. Idgy keeps chewing on the cardboard entrance but Mom says we can keep it so long as the entrance hole doesn’t get much bigger. I gotta talk to that Idgy. She is a crazy girl.
Well I gotta run, Chip is getting lonely.
Sending my love back to you all. Loves always Merc

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
