This is an exceptional organization providing a much needed service. Exotic animals and wildlife are unique and require specific environments and nutrition and there just are not enough facilities providing this type of care. Well done Critter Camp!
Critter Camp provides a great service to needy animals. The animals find a safe place and loving care.

We met Beth when we were looking for a bird cage and she showed us around her sanctuary. I was really impressed with all their hard work and loving care that they are giving these unwanted animals. I know that they are in a good place and will continue to support their efforts as much as I can.

I had the good fortune to visit Critter Camp about 3 years ago. What Beth does there is amazing. How she does what she does with so little help astounds me. I would advise if you're ever in the area, you should arrange a tour. Maybe stay and help a while. It will be an experience you'll never forget. And you might get to cuddle a fennec fox !
Critter Camp is unlike any other shelter. Beth only takes in exotic animals, runs completely on donations and fundraising, and cares for these animals largely on her own. She is tireless. The animals are safe and happy, loved and cared for. She knows every animal by name and knows how to care for them. She fights for every cent, makes the most of every day and I'm so grateful for all that she does.
I love Critter Camp! It's a great place to see animals you have never seen, learn about them and maybe even hold them. It's more than just a Sanctuary. The philosophy is that all living creatures are important, no matter how small, they are all treated with respect and compassion.
Beth is great at talking to people of all ages and answering their questions. There is no other place like it. If you haven't been there, set up a tour today. You will see animals you never dreamed of putting together getting along better than humans with other humans! Animals setting an example for people. That alone is worth the trip. See for yourself!

I have brought my grandson to see Beth's critters many times. It is one of his very favorite places. Beth has more compassion than anyone I have ever met. She had the knowledge to run this very diverse sanctuary.
I'm so happy this charity exists to take in all the unwanted, homeless animals that this world has to offer. Critter Camp gives excellent care and love to each individual, special creature.
This is the place where those exotic animals who have nowhere else to go are welcome. Beth Randall gives each of the animals in her care love and a secure environment. Her expertise about the many exotic animals she has in her care is exemplary. Through her hard work her "camp" is a haven.
Critter Camp is a wonderful place where unwanted small pets can live their lives in peace. Just knowing that some one cares enough to fill a need like this make me very happy. I support Critter Camps work and applaud their dedication.
