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...

All of us here at Critter Camp are feeling very grateful this year!

We have so many supporters, generous kind people who have made it possible for us to rescue 

hundreds of small pets once again this year.

In our nearly 11 years in operation Critter Camp has saved the lives of 1500 small animal, thanks to 

all of you!

Our most recent arrivals include a pair of young captive bred garter snakes, Blackie & Stripes, and a hairless rat named Gus.

As the weather chills we look forward to the holidays, a chance to appreciate everyone who makes this rescue possible, and to celebrate the lives we've saved!

Thank you!!!

New Rescues and In the News at Critter Camp!

Boomer the hedgehog

Such a busy summer at Critter Camp, turning into an equally busy fall!

We took in Boomer the hedgehog, Charlamagne the bunny, and a pet rat that was found at a wildlife center who apparently got pregnant by a wild rat and now she has 7 healthy little pups.

We made a fun video of Lizzie the bearded dragon riding Rambo the sulcata tortoise like a cowboy.

The video was picked up by MSN and they did a fantastic segment, click here to see it!

It was on Cute Overload too ( click here).

We had an article on the PetravelR site too- click here to read.

We won $500 each in contests by Staseck Chevrolet (click here for the story) and

Cabot Creamery Reward Volunteers program (click here).

And we won $1000 in the Animal Sheltering contest too! Thanks to all of our fans that voted for Critter Camp!

All this comes in so handy since we spend a minimum of $450 every week in supplies alone!

Here at Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary our philosophy is that humans bred every one of these animals here 
for their enjoyment or profit and we as humans have a responsibility to
give them all a safe, healthy, happy, loved life even if they aren't
economically beneficial anymore.
Only when we as a collective people learn to give every creature's life
 value will the pet overpopulation, abandonment and abuse diminish. As
long as pets are considered pieces of property to be thrown away when
 used up or not wanted, people will continue to not value each and every life

and sadly most "rescue" policy reflects that.
