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 Fennec Foxes, Guinea Pigs, Degus & more!

Chanel celebrates the Cubs Series Win!
Chanel celebrates the Cubs Series Win!

We have a lots of new rescues who need your help!


A few weeks ago we took in 9 guinea pigs from a huge hoarding situation, we only took the least adoptables including 2 females that may be pregnant! (Other rescues took in the over 400 total!)


We also helped place 3 foxes that were confiscated at a meth lab! A red and a pair of marbles. We found them great homes and they are happy!


Last week we took in 2 new fennec foxes! They are 4-5 years old, and were a former breeder's personal pets she had to give up due to personal issues. They are a bonded pair, Ivex the male is completely blind and Bunny is his seeing eye fox! He is always calm if he can feel her next to him. It will take some time for them to bond with me but they are settling in very well considering all they have been thru.


This week we took in 10 degus from a rescue that was closing. They are all extremely hyper and not handleable.
And finally today we took in two elder (6 yr old) male guinea pigs whose owner is getting divorced and cannot take them.


CritterCampMom's health is still not great, still dizzy every day. She has an appointment with the specialist in December so we will see what the next steps are. It is exhausting fighting the dizzy every day. In the meantime her knee is acting up- in an MRI they found a huge mass of fluid under the muscle that has to be compressed to be reabsorbed. And sure the toes still hurt.


But we go on with our mission because of YOU our supporters who truly care about these animals and make it possible for us to care for them!


We need you now more than ever!
Any amount helps! Thank you!

Gemini

 

Gemini is a little chinchilla with a broken leg, now deformed due to leaving it wrapped too long. He was abandoned in an apartment when his owner moved. He was found by the landlord in a cage with a dead guinea pig! He is thriving and safe and loved now here at Critter Camp!

I've had a rough year with this Meniere's disease, surgeries, broken toes, still being dizzy and weak. Help me shove out that old year and bring in a new one starting out with all the organization's expenses paid up to date!
We need to raise at least $2000 before my birthday.

Heartwarming story of Frankie the ferret who loved his person Mindy, but when she could no longer care for him he found himself lost and alone. Follow Frankie as he heads out to find Critter Camp, where animals have a place to live out their lives when no one else will care for them. Along the way, Frankie meets other former pets like himself, each with their own touching stories. This book is based on true stories of real-life animals that have been cared for at Critter Camp. All proceeds benefit the 300 rescued animals living their lives safe, happy and loved at Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary.

We've also partnered with Food for Thought 
http://www.foodforthoughtcampaign.org/endorsements.html 
 Pledging to only serve vegetarian/vegan food at all our events! Here is our pledge: 
Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary has always been committed to the well being of all companion animals and animals bred in captivity. Although we do not specifically accept farm animals we believe that they are deserving of a full happy life and should not be raised and slaughtered for human consumption. Many of our own board members and volunteers are practicing vegetarians or vegans and we encourage others to eliminate as many animal products from their diet and clothing as possible. In keeping with this dedication to the welfare of all animals Critter Camp vows to only allow vegetarian/vegan foods (striving to be as vegan as possible) to be served at any events we host, as well as to be available in our future facility (i.e. snack machines, etc.) 

Thank you for all of your support! We still need to raise funds ! Keep sharing and donating! Thanks!
