Every year a number of ferret shelters and organizations get together and make a Ferret Giving Tree.  The Ferret Giving Tree gives shelter operators an opportunity to feature individual adoptables, and allows the rest of us to be secret santa and choose a shelter ferret to spoil with gifts at the holiday season.  These gifts don't have to be crafty, but I think most people choose to make bedding and toys.  I always love animal-based charities, and this one is one of my favorites.  Please visit http://givingtree.friendsoffuzzies.com/page1.html to see this year's Ferret Giving Tree, and maybe one of those cute little faces will catch your eye, and another fuzzy will get special stuffies this year.

For ideas about what you can make for ferrets, you can visit Ferrets Are Love.  http://www.ferretsarelove.com/products.html  Fran hand-makes all her bedding and toys, and you can see what designs are most usable.

OMG, the ferrets are so precious! Aww, if I had more spare time, I would do it and spoil a cute little ferret. Is this a project they do every year? I definately would love to do it next year so I could have some time to prepare and such.

Yes, they do it every year.  And there are usually two separate Giving Trees organized by members of the Ferret Mailing List.  One is the one I posted above.  The second is for ADV positive ferrets.  ADV is a highly contagious virus that effects ferrets and mink and other weasel-family relatives.  It is a devastating disease, and can be contracted by on minimal exposure, so there are special shelters who handle ONLY ADV+ ferrets.  These precious critters have a death sentence, as there is no cure.  I'll see if I can find the address for this year's ADV+ Giving Tree.
