Critter Camp receives no public or government funding-
We rely on the kindness of fellow animal lovers to feed and care for all 236 rescued critters here!
No donation is too small (or large :)
At a certain point re-homing pets, particularly the unusual and exotic ones, at all costs often serves only to make the people involved feel better about themselves, irregardless of the stability and continuity of care the elderly, abused or ill animal actually needs. Euthanizing such animals brings the rescuer down to the universally despised level of "puppy-mills" in that if an animal is no longer useful to humans it must be killed. This is incredibly heartbreaking. Again, people bred every one of these pet animals for human enjoyment and/or profit, therefore we as humans have an obligation to provide the best of care for these animals for their entire lives, whether or not they are "pet quality."
