Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary

Critter Camp's Mission is to provide a safe, healthy, happy forever home to unadoptable small exotic and unusual pets. These animals are unadoptable due to advanced age, chronic illness, aggression and/or excessive fearfulness, generally from abuse or neglect. Many come to us from other shelters where they were to be euthanized. Our main goal is to provide care for as many of these forgotten pets as possible. Critter Camp's secondary goal is to educate the public on the needs of these pets for two outcomes. One is to help current pet owners provide better care of their pets, the second is to prevent impulse buying of these types of pets by creating educated potential pet owners. Critter C...

So Harry was a new rescue ferret that we took in from animal control recently - (he's there on the far right- settled right in in the pic) Anyway animal control calls us after we had him for a week that the owner called and wants him back! Ok #1 they lost this ferret, # 2 they didnt bother to ask about him for over 2 weeks! I said give them our number and we'll deal with it. Apparently the "owner" had given Harry, (and a cagemate!,) to friends because they were pooping all over and she thought they were potty trained....... she had gotten them free off Craigslist and that person told her they were- um no 50% is usually as good as it gets with ferrets & potty training. So she couldnt take Harry back anyway but didnt want to upset the friend! Well some friend, they lost your pet and didnt even care! So here was the cagemate all alone- and ferrets can die of loneliness- in a neglectful at best home. Ends up we agree to take her as well- enter Sally - the little brown ferret mid photo (looking at Ziggy who doesnt clean himself real well)

Turns out Critter Camp is the 6th home for these little guys, so they are done- they stay here & get to live out their lives in a stable loving safe home! The kicker is that when she brought Sally she told us that she had brought us two guinea pigs a year or so ago too! I strongly urged her to to get anymore pets until she was actually ready to keep them for their whole lives.

Don't forget our Foxy T - only available for another week!!

Thank you for helping us help the animals!

Happy Spring!

Rambo!
Rambo!

We hope everyone is having a very Happy Spring so far! 

We are enjoying the warm weather, doing some heavy duty spring cleaning and getting some much needed fresh air!

Rambo finally gets out in her pen and what does she do? Tear through the hardware cloth and then through the shain link! So we have it all reinforced now with strong bars. Silly tortoise!

We welcome new rescues:

Butterscotch an elder ratty that was left in an apartment when the tenant moved.

And Dale and Alabama elder guinea pigs who are very afraid of people.

They will be right at home in our free range guinea pig area.

With your help we can continue to take in these, the most needy of small pets! Thank you!!
