Bask in the glory that were previous VIFERT outings

Oct 22

Bosleys in Ladysmith

 We were on the road to Ladysmith to share out some ferret love.  WE had over 15 ferrets for people to come and snuggle.  We recruited (lured) some new volunteers and some fuzzies found new furever homes as well.  So a good days outing.

Bosleys in Courtenay 6th Anniversary

Congratulations to the OCurtenay Bosley for 6 years in the community.  They have been great supporters of VIFERT and we had a blast.  We also got a cheque from a previous Bosley's event for over 2,100.00.  The ferrets greatly appreciate the help.









July 23

Eagle Creek Bosleys in Victoria

We had an event in Victoria in memorium of a ferret, Missy Toad, had passed.  Her owner got in touch with us and asked us to help celebrate Missy Toads life and share our ferrets, ferret love, and education.  A good time was had by all.  Thanx for having us.


July 1-3

Ships Point Night Market in Victoria

Happy Birthday Canada. It was a long tiring weekend for VIFERT but we raised around $1100 and educated a lot of people about ferret care.  Thanx to Mandy & Dave, Dev & James, John, Chantal, Christine, Suzanne, Chelsea, Tamra, Cheryl & Karl for the long days and hard work, and, of course, Linda for the donation of all the beautiful hand made items.














June 18th

Bosley's Courtenay

What a BLAST.  We had a lot of fun and Bosleys raised a huge amount of money for ferret care; over $1000.  Thanx folks, from the many furry fuzzies of VIFERT.  Maybe next time they will let the ferrets in the bouncey castle.

Bosley's "Cram The Crate" event

Thank you Bosley's in Courtenay for hosting us and the other rescues at the event and 98.9 Jet FM for the great coverage, Cheryl sounded amazing.  We got great community exposure and received a number of adoption applications.  Sophia & Dorothy and the Star Wars Trio were on hand to be adored and snuggled.  They were some tired after meeting all their fans. 


Nov 2021
Cumberland Winter Fair
While no fuzzy ambassadors were present, VIFERT was represented by a craft table and we sold over 400.00, which all goes to ferret care.

V.I.FERT Picnic 2021

Celebrating a break in Covid, members of V.I.FERT got together for a ferret frolic in Victoria.  About 17 people and more than 20 ferrets got together for a wonderful time.  Hopefully, this is a precursor to future events for the public.

















28 Jan 2021
We made the Sannich News for helping a lost fuzzy find her owner.  See the link below for the story.
