What's New at the AFA?

Attention Show Exhibitors! AFA's New Online Show Registration!

AFA is proud to announce our new Online Show Registration system! The system is being rolled out for our Dooktoberfest show in October. You can now register your ferrets, order catalogs, reserve vending space, place an ad in our show catalog and sponsor a title class ring. The system was built so you don't have to add up your entries or show entry fees, that is all done for you on the summary page. You will also get an email confirmation once your submit your entries so you can see what you entered. You will still receive the official show confirmation with your forms for check in about two weeks before the show.

The 2016 Dooktoberfest show will be held at the Lovettsville Game Protective Association Club Building in Lovettsville, VA on October 29th. Only those ferrets entered in the show are allowed in the show hall. For more information or if you have questions about the new Online Show Registration system, please call 1-888-FERRET-1 or better yet please email

Attention Show Exhibitors! FOTY & SFOTY Changes!

After many discussions and continued support from the ferret showing community, the calculation for Ferret of the Year (FOTY) and Specialty Ferret of the Year (SFOTY) has been changed to only count each eligible ferret's best four shows to determine the winners. The reason for the change is to help shows get more entries while not penalizing ferrets running for the top honors when they may not look their best and already have shown in four shows. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at
