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...

New Rescues! Aries, Buddy, Flynn & Zorro!

Flynn
Flynn

Hey folks!! Thanks to YOUR kindness we have been able to take in a few new rescues! 


Meet Aries the ferret- he has been rehomed multiple times and his last owner just left him with a roommate and said they didn't want him!  He is doing great in our free range ferret room!


Buddy the hedgehog was found outside as a stray! He is eating like crazy and very happy in his new cozy home.


Flynn the bunny  is highly aggressive towards people. His owner tried for 2 years to calm him  but he actively charges everyone! She found us and now Flynn is happily munching greens in our free range bunny haven with his fellow kindred bunnies that do not like people.


And of course we took in newest foxy Zorro! He is a young silver fox who was rehomed multiple times as well, with owners not realizing what they have gotten themselves into with a house fox! And this is nothing- wait till he's full grown! He has fit right in and is starting to engage Tod our red fox in brotherly play!  Check out our page on pet foxes too:

All our work is thanks to YOU! The donors who make it possible for us to care for these critters! 

Every bit helps!

Thank you!!

Please VOTE!
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!!

Voting time!

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:
