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!
We have some new sponsors for Tiles in our building! http://crittercamp.weebly.com/our-new-building.html

Thank you so much for your support and interest in our cause- saving the lives of homeless small pets!!!
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!
