Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary

Critter Camp's Mission is to provide a safe, healthy, happy forever home to unadoptable small exotic and unusual pets. These animals are unadoptable due to advanced age, chronic illness, aggression and/or excessive fearfulness, generally from abuse or neglect. Many come to us from other shelters where they were to be euthanized. Our main goal is to provide care for as many of these forgotten pets as possible. Critter Camp's secondary goal is to educate the public on the needs of these pets for two outcomes. One is to help current pet owners provide better care of their pets, the second is to prevent impulse buying of these types of pets by creating educated potential pet owners. C...

Please VOTE!

Hey folks thanks so much for your donations!! keep em coming ok! 

Hey we are in a NEW contest too- Your vote would be appreciated!! The contest runs through June 15.

https://www.younoodle.com/podium/jr/digital_storytelling_competition_judging1/public_voting#554f1b28edb1ac9d43a193190d0cfc98

The rules say you can vote once a day but people are having trouble doing that- so try if you can - even one vote helps! 

Critter Camp Mom is still having Dizzy spells, her follow up appointment is June 10. It can take up to 6 months to know if the surgery helped. Critter Camp Mom ALSO has to have surgery on her left foot & toes. The toe & foot bone she shattered in December healed jagged and needs to be smoothed. That surgery is June 16. Throughout all of this Critter Camp mom continues to clean cages, feed animals, manage the entire rescue and fundraise, sometimes even while miserable, in pain, crawling because she cannot stand up and barely functioning. We have some loyal local volunteers but no one else can be here 24/7 to care for nearly 300 sanctuary animals that had nowhere else to go. While we know many of you cannot help with these tasks you CAN help with the fundraising by promoting our Global Giving Project! Please Share!

And give if you can! Thank you!!

Meet New ferrets and ratties

Penelope & Felix
Penelope & Felix

Hi folks! Critter Camp Mom survived her surgery on her inner ear & is hopefully going to see some improvement in her menieres disease! She also broke both little toes ( separate incidents- due to being constantly dizzy from the meniere's) 

Recovery is slow going but volunteers are helping out. We are so grateful to the outpouring of support from everyone!

We have also recently taken in 4 new ferrets: Kiwi, Coconut, Felix & Penelope, and some more of the ratties from the housefire in WI- making a total of over 50 from that one incident! 

Also Please nominate Critter Camp in this Oxbow contest:

BIG Rescue! 33 rats And More!

New boys
New boys

Recently Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary took in 33 rats from a private rescuer who had a house fire. Tragically she had to rehome all of her animals and we took the unadoptable ones. Currently they are in two colonies, 21 boys and 12 girls.  They are not handleable and will bite. We are glad that we can give them a safe place to live out their lives.

Critter Camp has also been chosen to be The Travelin' Rat's Rescue of the Month for March!

Critter Camp also welcomes new rescues Celine & Stella, a pair of girl guinea piggies whose time had run out at a kill shelter. When they got here we realized they are pregnant! So more little babies for adoption soon! 

We also took a rabbit in the same rescue whose time had run out but he turned out to be very sweet and adoptable. He is beginning a new life at Blue Moon Sanctuary as a therapy bunny! 

Thank you to all of our supporters who make our continued success a reality! So many lives saved because of YOU!
