Critter Camp Exotic Pet SanctuaryWebsite URL
German Valley, il
13 years ago we took in 2 ferrets as a homeschool project to help my son with autism cope with a trauma he suffered. Then people brought us small pets they couldn't keep.We found no one takes the unadoptable small pets that are elderly, aggressive, etc. & we narrowed our focus to them, especially those in kill shelters about to be euthanized.We founded Critter Camp, a USDA licensed, 501c3 nonprofit & now care for 350 small pets of 30 species, the only such rescue in the country.We accept animals from across the US & give educational presentations. Our goal is to build a stand alone facility.
