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.

Hamstergeddon 2! Congrats to an Eagle Scout & More

Matthews Sign

Remember Hamstergeddon ? Well we have Hamstergeddon 2 here at Critter Camp and it's a doozy! 

We agreed to take in approximately 27 hamsters from a kill shelter where their time had run out, but when they came they were mixed together and some were having babies as they came in the door! 

So now we are up to 70 new little dwarf hamsters with new litters every day! All of the mature hamnsters have been separated so they don't make more hammie babies, but there are still a minimum of 8 females that could be pregnant.

We have the adorable little critters for adoption as most are friendly. Learn more here:

We've also taken in some new ratties, one was bait to train dogs to catch rats: Remy, Paddy & Gandalph the White.

2 new bunnies are on their way here as well!

Congrats to Matthew Olsen for earning his Eagle Scout rank - he created the signs for Critter Camp entrance and our building site!

Critter Camp saved 223 animals in 2012!

Precious

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!!
