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...

Thanks to all of you wonderful supporters Critter Camp is able to rescue more needy pets!

Meet:

Sugar the blind Ferret- she has many health issues and was not having her needs met by her owners. She is adapting to our free range ferret room and meeting her new 19 ferret buddies!

Michelle the box turtle. We got a call to rescue a "baby male tortoise" which turned out to be a female adult box turtle! She is enjoyign her life in our box turtle enclosure with ehr new lady buddies Abby, Irma , Millie & Alberta. She is also enjoying eating the right food and not lettuce!

Jelli is a very cranky older male hedgehog. We are hoping to settle him down but sometimes they just do not like attention from people. Hedgehogs are very shy and solitary animals.

We also took in a couple of tortoise and bearded dragons and hamsters recently!

Miss Vixen the Silver fox kit we took in in May is thriving! She is very active, growing like a weed and getting along with everyone!

Did you know that we use over 1000 pounds of supplies EVERY Single Week! 

We appreicate every single person who helps us care for all 350 rescued samll pets here at Critter Camp!

Welcome Vixen, Baby, Maddie, & Zeddy!

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!

Happy Easter from all the Bunnies at Critter Camp!

Bunny Easter Feast
Bunny Easter Feast

All 40 of the rescued bunnies at Critter Camp wish you a very Happy Easter! Our two newest rescued bunnies are a pair of elder buns Oreo & Maggie, and feisty biting bunny Hodgy. We hope everyone chooses chocolate bunnies instead of pets this Easter! Rabbits are far harder to care for than most people realize, and they can become aggressive too! We also recently rescued a stray ferret we've named Pogo. He is a little ball of fire and super cute! And we are still having litter of dwarf hamsters from our huge Hamstergeddon 2 rescue! Luckily we have been able to adopt many of the new babies. Thank you for your amazing support of our mission to give a safe, healthy happy home to small unusual and unadoptable pets!
