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.

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!!

Great Start to the New Year!

We hope all of you are having a great start to the new year- despite the horrible winter weather many of us are facing!

Don't worry, Spring will be here soon!

So far this year we have taken in and adopted out a pair of aquatic turtles who were found in a dumpster! 

Yes Lucy the red eared slider and her buddy Ethel the yellow belly slider were found in bitter cold in a bucket in the trash!  Critter Camp does not normally take in aquatic turtles or adoptable pets, however there were no other rescues that would accept them within hundreds of miles! So we took them and luckily found a fantastic home for them too!

We've had other new residents come in as well, some ratties & a guinea pig named Lou.

We also helped a woman with cancer find homes for her beloved degus.

Critter Camp celebrated Valentines day with some cute pics too!

Thank you everyone for your amazing support!!!
