Reviews for The Critter Place

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

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

Ted is a selfless man with a true love for all creatures, great and small. He has given everything to the cause of helping animals, and The Critter Place is the embodiment of a lifetime of devotion.

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

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.

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!

The critter place rocks! Ted Koran takes such great care of these animals that have had very rough lives. I have visited the critter place a few times, and I'm amazed at how Ted communicates with the animals, and how wonderful they are treated. They deserve to live the rest of their lives with love, and Ted makes sure they get it!!! Five stars indeed!!

It was equally a pleasure meeting a young lady with as much caring for animals as I do. I appreciate you and your friends for getting a crew together and help with some rebuilding of the sanctuary. Thank you.
