Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary Rescues MorePets

Hi folks, 

Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary takes in only the unadoptable and unusual pets that have nowhere to go and gives them a safe healthy loving home for the rest of their lives. 

For example, we have a free range colony of rabbits that have bitten people and were going to be euthanized.

Recently we just took in a group of 20 rats from an emergency situation where they were in immediate danger. No other rescue would take them.

Since we don't adopt and we take the pets other than cats & dogs there are very few funding sources or grants that we qualify for ( we've even had grad students search!) Therefore we rely on individual donations to make up the $600-800 we need each week to provide quality food, bedding and vet care for the over 200 animals here at the sanctuary. It's almost time for our annual $1100 liability insurance premium too. 

Any Help you can give is appreciated! No amount is too small, no amount is too large!

Thank you!

Beth

It's just about Tax Refund Time! Please remember the critters when you get yours!


Since our last big updates we have taken in 2 more guinea pigs- Smores & Marshmallow, and a prairie dog- Roo!


CritterCampMom's health is still not good- still seeing specialists and having tests. Nothing is fatal, just making life difficult! Critter Camp will always go on and with your support it can move forward to become a stand alone facility in the future!


For now lets keep everyone fed & cared for here :)

Check out our website for our new T shirt and our book too!

Thank you!!!

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 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! 

As always Critter Camp Celebrates International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19 with adorable pics of our rescues wearing a pirate hat! Stop by our facebook page sunday the 18th and Monday the 19th to see all the cute pics! http://www.facebook.com/crittercamp

  Oct. 1 is my 56th birthday and all I want is to help Critter Camp catch up on expenses!!
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.
Any amount helps! $5 or $500!
I'll post updates on totals from the various sources -probably weekly.

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!
