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!
