Rescued Prairie Dogs Munch & Fin

Rescued Prairie Dogs Munch & Fin
These two prairie dogs were pets that had not been cared for for some time. A neighbor rescued them and got them to Critter Camp. They have been neutered and are beginning to gain weight and settle in. They are hesitant to use their new exercise wheel, it is likely they've never seen one before.

Buddy the ferret

Buddy the ferret
Buddy had been kept in a 20 gallon aquarium for three years. It was filthy and he was miserable. His owner said Buddy's tail got stuck in the lid so he cut it off! Buddy is safe and happy here in Critter Camp's free range ferret room! (view small | med | large | orig)

Wrigley the Hairless Rat

Wrigley the Hairless Rat
Rats make excellent pets. However some people do not spend the time with them they need to stay friendly. Wrigley came in with a more aggressive cagemate. He is very sweet though and goes with us to visit schools etc. (view small | med | large | orig)

Fred & Ethel Sugar Gliders

Fred & Ethel Sugar Gliders
Fred and Ethel are a bonded pair of sugar gliders that do not like people. They came to Critter Camp when their owner could not care for them anymore. Sugar gliders are difficult pets to keep and most people are not able to care for them appropriately for their entire 15 year lifespan. (view small | med | large | orig)

Zeddicus the Bearded Dragon

Zeddicus the Bearded Dragon
Bearded dragons make good pets, but they must be kept alone. Zed's owners had another adult beardie in with him and the other one was eating him alive! He had his foot nearly chewed off and part of his tail gone when he was rescued. (view small | med | large | orig)
