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!!!

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!!!

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.
