The West Michigan Ferret Connection is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Meet the shelter's proprietor:
My name is Dee Gage. I am a Ferret Lover. Sounds like AA, doesn't it? Sorry.
I brought ferrets into my life in July 1996 as a birthday present to myself. I've always had animals in my life and my cat had died after a long life with me.
Ferrets were legal in Michigan, and I had had them on the back of my mind since I saw an ad for ferrets in a little shopping paper in Dubuque, Iowa in 1979 (that was in another life). I bought Beau and Nilla from a woman in Allendale. Nilla was a Dark-eyed White female. Beau was a little runt silver boy. Nilla was definitely the Alpha & Beau was my little Jimmy Buffet. I have shared my life with Hershey, Finnegan, Wile E. Coyote, Bear, Kody, Stone, Indy, Diamond, Coco & Buddha. I am also one of the founders of the Midwest Ferret Fellowship.
