Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary's  newest Rescue: 

 Lucky the hedgehog

 

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.

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!

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 :)
