The Critter Place is a true sanctuary for abused and abandoned animals. Ted has devoted many years to providing these deserving animals with love, safety and excellent care. He loves these many pigs, horses, dogs, cats, birds and various other critters with all his heart and money - and it is clear they love him back. The Critter Place is amazing, and so is Ted.

...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!

It is amazing how these animals are cared for with so much love., and so little help. We can see first hand how amazing the hurt and abused animals are able to have a new lease on life and enjoy the rest of their days

For a long time I wanted to visit The Critter Place. Many times I private messaged Ted with questions about my cats. I live on the other end of Florida but Ted never hesitated to help me out. If he didn't have an answer he always refereed me to other cat rescues or cat people. He is always so helpful. I have followed The Critter Place on Facebook for a few years and when Karen passed away many of us mourned her passing. I was finally able to meet Ted in person a few weeks ago. He is so genuine. His passion and compassion for his animals is amazing. His love for Karen and his sorrow with her loss was impossible for him to hide. His anguish I could see in his eyes but I could see his strength through the tears he tried to hide. His love for his animals and Ted's resolve to keep his promise to Karen is very admirable. All of the animals are so well taken care of and it's amazing how he does it mostly alone. If only more men could show so much love and compassion to animals and fellow humans like Ted. I will make it a point to volunteer from now on. The time I spent with Ted and the animals has touched my heart in a strange but wonderful spiritual way. For a man of no religion his essence is like no other person I have ever met.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The only thing that needs change is to get more help for Ted

The Critter Place is a fantastic sanctuary for these animals. Ted not only provides excellent care for them, he considers them family. He is so tuned-in to their needs and he just wants to provide the very best home for them. Absolutely awesome!
