Easter Candy Fundraiser

Posted on Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Easter is early this year!!!!  March 31!!!!
So we are selling home made Easter candy again this year just
alittle bit earlier.  The candy is made to order from Log Cabin
Candies in Fallston Md.  They are a long time family owned
business.  All their candy is delicious and who knows it may
even be good for you (I know I always feel better after I
eat chocolate)!!!!  They have a website but there isnt any candy
on their site so if you would like to order and sell Easter candy
to help all the ferrets at Oxford Ferret Rescue just let me know
and we will get a brochure in the mail to you.  We will run
this fund raiser from:
Monday Jan. 21 to Friday Feb. 15.
Please have your order emailed to me by Friday Feb. 15
and the money mailed to Claudia.  I will place the order
on Monday Feb 18.  This will give us enough time to get
the candy to everyone in plenty of time for Easter.
We will also be setting up bowling probably the 2nd Sunday
in March.  So anyone ordering candy can come out to bowl
with us and we will deliver your candy at bowling!
So get your brochure and ask all your family, friends, neighbors
and co-workers to purchase their Easter candy from us so that
we can help make Claudia’s life just alittle bit easier by helping
lower her massive vet bill!!!  As you all know no ferret is ever
turned away from Claudia just because it may need serious vet
care.  In fact she will always take those poor ferrets in dire
need when nobody else will.  So lets sell as much as we can
so we can help Claudia help all the ferrets at
Oxford Ferret Rescue!

As always its raining ferrets!!  Claudia got in 2 babies a few
days apart about 2 weeks ago.  Both are chocolate marshall
boys.  And Doreen and myself now have a baby in the house!!
I havent had a baby in years!!!  I usually take the ones no one
else wants, the older, sick ones, so its a real joy to have a
baby again!!!  Rio is a joy to have with us and my granddaughter
absolutely loves him and he loves her!!!  Claudia has taken
in alot of ferrets over the last few months.  There are still 4 ferrets
that need to get out of the montgomery county shelter.
The personal dumps never stop and there are more strays
being found than ever, many in Baltimore!

So please help in any way you can by helping us sell Yankee Candles.

We will also be doing a sub sale in the next few weeks.
And we have lots more planned, bowling, popcorn sale, and much
more.  So look for my emails.

Candy for Sale–Just in time for EASTER

Posted on Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Its been a little while since you heard from us.  We hope your
Holidays were great!  Its time to start raising money for
Oxford Ferret Rescue.

We have a lot of great things planned this year so far.

Our 1st fund raiser of the year is our Log Cabin Candy fund raiser.
This is a family owned candy company located in Fallston, Md.
They will make the candy when our order is turned in so you
know the candy you purchase will be fresh and made to
order AND it will help us raise money for the ferrets!!!!
I have the brochures and prices so let me know if you
would like a brochure I can mail it to you, or if you
prefer you can pick them up from Claudia at Chadwell
Animal Hospital.  We will run this fund raiser from now
till Feb. 24 and delivery would be the 2nd week in March.

We will be having another bowling event in Feb. or March,
confirmation date to follow.
We will also be selling Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, Popcorn
Palace Popcorn and Pizza over the next months!!!
And dont forget our annual Family Fun Day at the Cecil
County Fairgrounds in May!!!!!
So please look for my emails.

Claudia has taken in 12 ferrets in the last week!!!  Its a crazy
world we live in where everything is expendable no matter
what.  No animal’s life is worth much and our beloved ferrets
seem to have the lowest worth of any animal!  The dumping never
ends, SPCAs are overflowing and euthanizing at astounding
rates, and personal shelters are bursting at the seams!!!
Claudia needs our help raising money for all the ferrets she
has in her care.  Most of us could never do what she does day
in and day out.  She gives every minute of every day for the ferrets
she cares for that people just threw away.  She never has a day
off, she never gets to sleep in late, she never has a day where
she doesnt worry about this sick ferret or that one.  But we
can help!!!  We can continue to raise money and help pay off
her vet bill so she can at least have a little less worry!
I am asking everyone this year to help us raise money for
Oxford Ferret Rescue by participating in our fund raisers.
Every dollar helps!  If you buy 1 item or 50 it all helps.
So please help us help the ferrets in Claudia’s care!!!

PS:  If you are looking to add to your ferret family Claudia does
have some adoptables for you to choose from so let me know!!!
