Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary Rescues MorePets

by Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary


Critter Camp will save even more unadoptable small exotic pets that would otherwise be euthanized due to old age, chronic illness or aggression and give them a safe, healthy, happy life at our sanctuary; and care for the 300 animals here. We accept animals from all over the US, mainly in the Midwest. Many of the animals here live in free range colonies, some in small groups, & some are solitary. They all receive daily attention, excellent medical care, toys, treats, high quality food&loving care

Small exotic pets end up in shelters because people cannot or do not want to care for them any more. Sometimes they have been abandoned or abused. Often by the time they get to the shelters they are aggressive, ill or elderly and since most shelters do not have space or the knowledge to care for these animals often they are euthanized if they are not adopted quickly. Through no fault of their own these companion animals are killed to make room for more desirable animals.


Critter Camp will take in up to Even MORE (already met our first goal of 80, and 80 more- lets do MORE) new rescued small pets mostly from shelters where they were in danger of being euthanized and continue to care for the 300+ animals here. The animals will live out their lives safely in comfort with love in our sanctuary. Thus making room for the more adoptable pets in shelters. Every life we save generally saves another that was waiting to get into a shelter to find a new home.

Long-Term Impact

Even more Lives of small companion pets will be saved by coming to Critter Camp, possibly another 80 more that will take their places at shelters, and the 300+ animals already here will be cared for. Through our social media, and email newsletter we will continue to educate the public about the care needs of small unusual pets too.
