Reviews for Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary

Rating: 5 stars

A lovely rescue/shelter run by lovely and loving people. I thin I learned about them by accident through one of their educational videos on exotic pets (hedgehogs in this case). I was charmed by their other videos and, then, their mission. I support them because they care for rodents, rabbits, foxes, and other animals that local (and just as awesome cat and dog) shelters can't. I support their mission to care for pets that humans created and should continue to care for. And Critter Campbell believe even dying is precious and part of an animal's journey. My money and my good wishes are well invested at Critter Camp.

i love critter camp. i met beth through another organization & was delighted to learn about her unique rescue work. critter camp, unlike many other rescue operations, focuses on the positive & routinely brightens my day with photos of the sweet, unusual exotic animals for which critter camp provides care & a home.

Critter Camp does everything in their power to care for unadoptable small and exotic former pets. Their charges are often difficult to deal with due to former lives of abuse, neglect, or incorrect care: But they believe that every little charge deserves to have to best rest-of-their-life possible. It is so much work! But they are 100% dedicated.

Wonderful rescue for exotic animals of all kinds! I believe in Critter Camp so much that I donated a room full of cages, bedding, & toys to them when our last ferret went to the Rainbow Bridge. They treat every animal like family.

Critter Camp is an incredible rescue that aims to help exotic animals and educate people about all animals. I've been lucky enough to meet Beth in person and get a tour of the rescue. They are a wonderful family whose only goal is to selflessly help animals that are old, sick, or unwanted (which no animal should be!).

Critter Camp goes out of their way to help those that others can't or won't. They fulfill a true need and deserve so much more than they subsist on.

Beth Randell has been my friend for many years and the work she is doing at Critter Camp is amazing. She is doing SO much with such a little bit of space. All of the animals have names and they are kept in clean cages. Beth's dream is to have a free-standing building to house all of her "campers." She has educated herself about all the species of animals that she cares for and what their needs are. I know it hurts her heart when she has to say no to a rescue because she doesn't have the space. Please help Beth with her incredible work.

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

...purchase a building for Beth myself!
