Contact registrar at if any questions or concerns.


 We regret to announce that this year's show will NOT be American Ferret Association Sanctioned.

Unfortunately,  the AFA is unable to provide the necessary number of judges needed for our show 

Points and Placements for this show will not be part of the AFA Points System nor count for AFA Ferret of the Year.

NEW!   We are NOT requiring ADV testing for our show this year!

(Subject to change for next year.) 

These modifications do not change our show in any other way - it's still HOFA's Show and will go on with the same quality as always!
