I met Mr. Koran by chance outside of a store. I stayed with my dogs while my husband picked up a few items. Mr. Koran saw my pups and asked if he could say hi to them. I told him that the older one was skittish and doesn't approach strangers. Mr. Koran just started talking softly and saying how pretty she was and to my amazement she came up to him, shy at first, and then waging her tail and let him pet her. I was actually shocked and asked him how he did that. He said he runs an animal sanctuary a few miles down the road called The Critter Place. WOW. I've been following his sanctuary for a few months on FB and couldn't believe this was that Ted Koran. I've donated several times. I went to visit. I have a severe disability and I told him I was sorry I could not be of much help. He simply said that loving the animals and giving them attention was plenty of help. He was sad he couldn't give them as much attention he would like and appreciated my help with that part. His animals are well behaved. They are all healthy and cared for. The animals areas are clean and maintained. He a very caring true animal lover.

Amazing rescue and amazing guy keeping it going. All the animals are super happy and spoiled. Ted the owner works hard every day of his life for his critters. He barely makes time for himself, he just wants the best for these unwanted critters who now have a loving forever home. I wish there were more people like Ted. I look forward to visiting again and volunteering!

The Critter Place, owned & operated by Ted Koran is where forgotten & throw away animals get to live out their natural lives in a great setting. Ted knows & loves his animals and it really shows. If you can find it in your heart to donate, adopt, foster, volunteer - you will be so glad you did. Ted really makes a difference and you can help - please do.

Ted Koran received 21 of my rescue cats into his sanctuary in December/January 2016. I had called over 200 places of all kinds to place them, as my mobile home park enacted a rule stating only one animal could reside at each address. I had adopted 10 out but needed a forever home fast for the rest or face eviction. Upon a recommendation, I called Ted, then visited the next day. To my surprise and relief, he agreed to take them. This was 4 days before my eviction deadline! The first 5 were to be taken to The Critter Place on that day, and the rest followed as Ted built additional an outdoor enclosure for them adjoining the "Cat House" converted RV.
His welcoming my "dead end" kitties blew me away! It had become an impossible situation placing them, as place after place had no room and referred me on. I couldn't believe this man just made room for them . I continue to support them there, in order to preserve his donations for the other animals. Ted tends to their needs promptly and efficiently. He makes copious videos of them, and you can see the individual care he gives them. I believe they couldn't be happier there. I invite all who read this to visit The Critter Place and volunteer some time to help Ted, as he does all the work himself. Thanks to the folks who do come out and help. I am somewhat disabled and haven't been able to do much in the past few months, but I visit and support. The Critter Place is a little bit of Heaven!

...I have know Ted for about 2 years....the first time I visited " the critter place " I knew he was a good caring guy today loved his animals and too great care of them ..... I could actually write a book here but I'll try to keep it short .... Ted mentioned he to help save dogs by creating a foster center so we worked together and put that together and Ted named it " the hope foster center " Recently I wanted to save a dog named Ruger from A shelter and did my best to network him with no luck and the and it came time that the shelter had to put Ruger on the PTS list ...in the " 11 th I called Ted / and he said he would save him " ...Ted's heart is for the animals / Rigar is now safe at " the critter place " and doing well ....I support you in finding Ted Koran on Face Book
follow him daily and see how a " real dog rescue person does " dog review/ animal rescue ...Ted is an official 501-c 3 rescue / so donations made to " his animals a tax deductible ...his PayPal is thecritterplace@yahoo.com ... Please visit Ted Koran on FB and make a difference in an animals life ...you can also visit me on FB / I'm the only Heath Bodden on FB ....Ps/ you will enjoy the Videos that Ted puts on his page .....every person on the planet needs to have " a passion " after seeing Ted on FB your passion may become dog /animal rescue

I'D like to tell everyone out there reading this that Ted koran is an amazing man. This man cares for over 60 animals by himself, these are animals thrown away by their previous owners. His dedication an love for his animal family is touching, he gives unending love an care to each one. This man spends every dollar of his small income to feed an give vet care to all his anumals. Please people can u make a donation to help him out. It's tax deductible an it's going to a good cause. He is truly a remarkable self sacrificing person. I ask all to give up Starbucks Coffee an pay it forward to this man's sanctury. Thanku for reading.

I had the pleasure to meet Ted and the critters a couple weeks ago. He's a good man and is doing all he can to provide for the animals. Please consider a donation or even your time volunteering if you live near by.

The Critter Place is far above any normal animal shelter. The animals are free to roam and interact with volunteers, which makes for a very pleasant experience. Each animal is treated with such affection and love. Ted Koran shows true love and heart toward these abandoned or neglected animals and in doing so, has given them another shot at a long and happy life. I look forward to continuing my volunteer work here.

I was privileged to spend some time with Ted and the animals. You can see the love he has for each of his animals. He knows them all by name and their unique personalities. It's not a shelter where a number and a cage are assigned. The animals are free and receive love and human contact. Too bad we don't have more Ted's in the world!
