We've had a busy week here at Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary! Eleven new rescues came in!
Three 5 year old rabbits that had worked in a lab for their whole lives as food testers needed a home after the lab closed. They had been well cared for but not handled much and did not take to people so were not adoptable. Warren, Sirius Black & Dark Knight are all happily settled in to our free range Bunny Haven and have made new bunny friends here already!
Four guinea piggies were abandoned by their owner with a roommate who then dropped them off at a pet store. We picked them up and are considering which ones can be adopted and which will stay here for sanctuary.
Two degus came in because their owner couldnt care for them anymore.
And two ferrets came in because their owner has a serious medical condition that will only get worse. She and her young son were so sad to bring them but know they need to be in a safe place while their own lives change so dramatically. At least they ahve peace of mind that their beloved ferrets will be happy and cared for.
During this holiday season we are very grateful for all of the supporters who make it possible for Critter Camp to care for the animals that have nowhere else to go.
Everyone here at Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary wishes you a very happy Thanksgiving!
We are very grateful for all of the wonderful people who support our efforts to save the lives of small pets!
Recently we took in two more hedgehogs, Citrus and Mango. Their owner could not care for them, and had not given them attention so they do not like to be handled. They will be safe and happy here at Critter Camp!
We are looking forward to giving all the animals here holiday presents, as we do every year too!
We will update you with photos next month.
Thanks to all of your wonderful support Critter Camp is able to save even more animals!
We've increased our funding limit so we can continue to fund our valuable rescues.
Success story: Lizzie the bearded dragon came in this Spring emaciated and near death- with our tender loving care, good food and appropriate heating and lighting she is thriving! See the before & after pic!
We recently took in some more baby ratties that people could not take care of and most of them will be for adoption. They are adorable and friendly!
Critter Camp recently helped saved several pets that were on death row going to be euthanized due to biting, old age, illness & fearfulness. We can only do this with your help!

Sugar the blind Ferret- she has many health issues and was not having her needs met by her owners. She is adapting to our free range ferret room and meeting her new 19 ferret buddies!
Michelle the box turtle. We got a call to rescue a "baby male tortoise" which turned out to be a female adult box turtle! She is enjoyign her life in our box turtle enclosure with ehr new lady buddies Abby, Irma , Millie & Alberta. She is also enjoying eating the right food and not lettuce!
Jelli is a very cranky older male hedgehog. We are hoping to settle him down but sometimes they just do not like attention from people. Hedgehogs are very shy and solitary animals.
We also took in a couple of tortoise and bearded dragons and hamsters recently!
Miss Vixen the Silver fox kit we took in in May is thriving! She is very active, growing like a weed and getting along with everyone!
Did you know that we use over 1000 pounds of supplies EVERY Single Week!
We appreicate every single person who helps us care for all 350 rescued samll pets here at Critter Camp!
Critter Camp strives to care for the unadoptable and unique pets that have nowhere else to go. We give a healthy happy safe loving forever home to the elderly, abused, aggressive, and just plain unusual pets that shelters cannot handle.
Miss Vixen is one such pet. She is a silver fox kit, about 6 weeks old. She was bought from a breeder who obviously did not require any proof by their customers of ability to care for an exotic pet. He could not care for her and only 5 days after buying her and realizing she was not the type of pet he could care for at all, he did the right thing and found Critter Camp.
She is an absolute joy! Very loving, gentle, playful & calm. Her first night here she did very well, she is eating, sleeping and enjoying walks (inside) on her harness. We will probably keep her as an education animal to show people what not to buy on impulse!
We also welcome new ratties Baby, Maddie & Zeddy. They are about 2 years old, a bonded trio and Baby does not like people. Their very sweet owner had health issues and wa going into assisted care. She was desperate to find a place for them to live their lives safely and happy. We are very glad she brought them to Critter Camp! Of our 55 rescue rats, these are our only ladies!
We also took in Brownie the guinea piggy who doesnt like people at all.
Critter Camp works very hard to meet the highest of care standards, to educate the public and to save as many lives as we can! We are grateful for the support of wonderful folks like you who make it all possible!
