Critter Camp saved 223 animals in 2012!


Yes that's right, Critter Camp saved 223 small pets , many  would have been euthanized at 'kill' shelters had we not stepped up to take them in.

Critter Camp gives sanctuary to the elderly, chronically ill, aggressive and fearful small pets other than cats and dogs that are considered unadoptable by other rescues. 

We could not have accomplished this without your help! Thank you!!

And we start off 2013 saving more animals!

Welcome Dahlia & Precious- two rabbits in a kill shelter 'on the list' to go. 

Be sure to visit our website,

our Facebook page for Bunday Mondays, Weasel Wednesdays & Fennec Fox Fridays and other up to the minute pics and info on Critter Camp,

and our Youtube channel for the latest adorable videos of the critters! 

Thank you for your continued support!!

Hedgehogs are insectivores and need a high protein diet, chinchillas are herbivores and eat a very low protein diet. We are getting Lucky back on his tiny little feet.
