Happy Easter from all the Bunnies at Critter Camp!

Bunny Easter Feast
Bunny Easter Feast

All 40 of the rescued bunnies at Critter Camp wish you a very Happy Easter! Our two newest rescued bunnies are a pair of elder buns Oreo & Maggie, and feisty biting bunny Hodgy. We hope everyone chooses chocolate bunnies instead of pets this Easter! Rabbits are far harder to care for than most people realize, and they can become aggressive too! We also recently rescued a stray ferret we've named Pogo. He is a little ball of fire and super cute! And we are still having litter of dwarf hamsters from our huge Hamstergeddon 2 rescue! Luckily we have been able to adopt many of the new babies. Thank you for your amazing support of our mission to give a safe, healthy happy home to small unusual and unadoptable pets!

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!!

Lucky came in severely malnourished from being fed chinchilla food.
