Subject: FERRET WISE SHELTER- CLOSED temporarily!

HI All-

The very young VT stray ferret who arrived here tonight does prove
it. AND A GOOD REASON for Shelters to have ADV Quicktest kits on
hand! He is bright , healthy in appearance etc. Who would ever suspect it?
So while the ferret is in strict quarantione until relocation to a
dedicated ADV + facility we are CLOSED to visitors. This is for the welfare
of ALL the ferrets. A Thorough detox will be done over the weekend. The
good news is-- this is only for a few days. AND the shelter is able
to remain open.
The bad news is ADV is alive and well in New England! It is criminal --
we have a maybe 5 month old male ferret with no tattoos and no sign of
illness to prove it. Last year he could have been adopted into an
unsuspecting family.
To spare any exposure risks we are closing Ferret Wise for all visitations
until Monday AM.
Thanks for your understanding - we believe full disclosure is prudent!

The officers at Ferret Wise shelter
