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!

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!!
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!!!
Happy Holidays to everyone from Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary!!
We had a fun visit from Santa who brought lots of goodies for the rescues!!
Check out the slide show in the Links below!
Critter Camp had an amazing time at the Midwest Furfest too! Also check out that slideshow in the links below!
We also took in 2 more animals: Chocolate an elderly ratty, and Holly , a stray ferret.
It has been a fantastic year for Critter Camp thanks to all of you who ahve helped us care for so many animals!
We are looking forward to helping hundreds more in the upcoming year!
