Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary Rescues 80 Pets!

Jan 25, 2013

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!!

Lucky came in severely malnourished from being fed chinchilla food. 
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.

More New Critters!

Critter Camp welcomed a family fo five sugar gliders a while ago- Momma, Poppa, Peanut, Popcorn & Crackerjack are doing well!

This week we took in another family of 3 gliders. Momma Sugar, Daughters Cinnamon & Nutmeg. They ahd been living in an aquarium- which is a terrible way to hosue sugar gldiers. They are arboreal and need to climb and have lots of space. They were also malnourished. The three ladies are all responding well to their new home and healthy diet.

Critter camp took in Gracie Joy a ratty that is a biter too. She is enjoying her new home with her new lady ratty friends. 

Cairo the new fennec fox is doign well. He is exploring more every day and has found he likes to hang out in the other fox's cages too . 

The group of 5 new ferrets we recently took in are also enjoying their free range ferret room with our other 11 ferrets :)

The baby bunnies we rescued in August have grown fast! They are 8 weeks old and ready to adopt! We are including a link to their Petfinder listing for anyone interested.

Thank you so much for all of your support! We can't save them without you!
