More New Critters!

Baby Bunnies

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. 

Don't forget to Like Critter Camp on facebook too! See link below :)

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

NEW Fennec Fox & Ferrets!

Thanks to the generosity of wonderful folks like you Critter Camp was able to accept some new pets this week.

Meet Cairo a 3 year old fennec fox. His owner had a change of living arrangements and was no longer able to care for him. He's getting used to the excitement here at Critter Camp :)

We were also able to accept a group of 5 boned ferrets whose owner had serious health problems and had to give them up but needed them to stay together and in a free range setting like our free range ferret room. They are fitting in very well and have made new friends already. Jasper walks with a limp due to an old injury. They are all adorable!

Critter Camp took in a baby syrain hamster too and has already placed her with an adoptive family. Her owner mistakenly thought she could keep sibling syrian hamsters together- nope! they will fight. Hamsters need to be alone, except Roborovski hamsters ( tiny ones that look like they have white eyebrows and a mustache:)

We also have great news! We are getting a $10,000 grant from CHASE from the Chase contest we mentioned in our last update!!! Thanks to everyone who voted for Critter Camp!!! We won't ahve the money for several weeks but it is nice knowing it's coming :)

The tiny baby Bunnies we rescued are growing so fast! Thanks to you support we were able to save their lives! Now we can't stop taking adorable pics of them :)

We also recently rescued Gary & Greg the ratties, Logan the hairless ratty with health issues, Chester and Biscuit the ratties that are biters, and Darwin the guinea pig.

We also took in Zippy a 10 year old rabbit with a severe head tilt. However her loving family decided she wasn't too much work after all and they missed her so much that they came and picked her back up :)

Critter Camp is also in the Chase contest! Please see the links below to vote! We really need your help! Critter Camp can rescue hundreds more pets if we win some $ in the Chase contest! 

 

Thank you!!!

Peanut has an inoperable tumor, but is not in pain or discomfort

A carnival worker left this bunny at the fairgrounds after having obtained it from someone exhibiting at the fair, when this poor scared little momma gave birth the worker did not want her since he was travelling - Critter Camp was called and rescued Lady but not before one of her babies didn't make it, we have her in a safe small dark quiet area and she appeared to be nursing her two remaining babies this evening- will keep you posted -

Lady's food- she was given moldy hay cubes and feed corn- horrible

Darwin the guinea piggy

We have also recently taken in a family of 5 sugar gliders and some more guinea piggies- and a ratty- more pics soon!
