Sponsorship & Advertising Information
The AFA relies on sponsors to enable us to continue to host and hold our ferret shows. We offer sponsorships both to businesses and individuals who wish to help support our shows and our educational efforts.
All proceeds from our shows go directly to continue our goals to: promote the domestic ferret as a companion animal; protect the domestic ferret against anti-ferret legislation, mistreatment, and unsound breeding; provide constant and up-to-date information of interest to ferret owners. Please help us continue to help ferrets!
Business and Corporate sponsorships are offered to businesses of any type that would like to receive the exposure of all of the exhibitors and attendees of our shows. Typically, pet-related businesses, as well as businesses local to the Mid-Atlantic region, choose corporate sponsorships, though they are open to anyone who would like to support our efforts!
For individuals who wish to support our shows, we offer Specialty Sponsorships. Many sponsors choose to sponsor a specialty class in honor of a special ferret, or for a ferret that has passed away. Other shelters, as well as ferretries, and small ferret-related businesses also use Specialty Sponsorships as advertising.How to Sponsor
