Save the Date! 3rd Annual "Ferret Bowl," Sunday, May 23!

Join FURS for our third annual Ferret Bowl bowling fundraiser on Sunday, May 23, from 4 to 8 p.m.

Once again, crazed ferret folk and avid and amateur bowlers will converge on Meszar's Lanes in Cleveland's Old Brooklyn neighborhood to show their support for our efforts to rescue, rehabilitate, and adopt companion ferrets.

A door fee of $20.00 gets you unlimited bowling, shoes, a pizza/salad/desert dinner and soft drink, and discounted cash bar.

We'll have contests, games, and raffles for every taste and interest, including the 50/50 and lottery frame raffles that have been so hugely successful at past events. We'll also have ferret and animal-themed merchandise available for purchase.

All proceeds go directly to the care of our fur kids. Over 80% of the funds we generate and donations we receive go toward vet care, with food and litter a distant second.

Come early! The lanes fill quickly!

Meszar's Lanes is located at:

4231 Fulton Road (in the Memphis-Fulton Shopping Center, lower level)
Cleveland, Ohio 44144
(216) 741-7933

Many thanks to the Meszars for hosting this event! We're looking forward to seeing you there!
