Exciting News!!!! We have contracted with Animal Arts Design to provide a Needs Assessment and Site Plan for our new facility!!!!

You can follow our progress as well on our website: www.crittercamp.org
So Harry was a new rescue ferret that we took in from animal control recently - (he's there on the far right- settled right in in the pic) Anyway animal control calls us after we had him for a week that the owner called and wants him back! Ok #1 they lost this ferret, # 2 they didnt bother to ask about him for over 2 weeks! I said give them our number and we'll deal with it. Apparently the "owner" had given Harry, (and a cagemate!,) to friends because they were pooping all over and she thought they were potty trained....... she had gotten them free off Craigslist and that person told her they were- um no 50% is usually as good as it gets with ferrets & potty training. So she couldnt take Harry back anyway but didnt want to upset the friend! Well some friend, they lost your pet and didnt even care! So here was the cagemate all alone- and ferrets can die of loneliness- in a neglectful at best home. Ends up we agree to take her as well- enter Sally - the little brown ferret mid photo (looking at Ziggy who doesnt clean himself real well)
Turns out Critter Camp is the 6th home for these little guys, so they are done- they stay here & get to live out their lives in a stable loving safe home! The kicker is that when she brought Sally she told us that she had brought us two guinea pigs a year or so ago too! I strongly urged her to to get anymore pets until she was actually ready to keep them for their whole lives.
Don't forget our Foxy T - only available for another week!!
Thank you for helping us help the animals!
Tod & Rambo are conspiring!
Happy Mother's Day from Critter Camp!
Tod says get one of these cool T's!
