Meet Quiggly the fennec fox!
Quiggly is at Critter Camp through our Emergency Help program
 Due to housing difficulties his owners could not keep him temporarily and so he will stay with us until they are able to take him back. They did not want to place him or give him up , but also knew he needed a place to live with the best of care.
It will be ineteresting to see how he and Zoey get along!
 So far she is mildly interested- curious as to what is making the same cage protective noises she does.
UPDATE on our 75 rescued critters from the Texas SPCA in the Global Exotics Case and the new ratty colony!
Habitrail is donating 10 of their new OVO set-ups to Critter Camp for the Texas rescues to be adopted in!
So the first 10 folks adopting 2-4 of our Robo hammies will get the set-up included!
At least two of the ground squirrels are pregnant- we will keep you updated & post pics of the babies as soon as they are born!

 We also have 4 very pregnant white mice! There will be babies anyday!

 And at least 2 of the ratty girls are pregnant, possibly 4-6 are!
The three ratty girls with tumors had surgery this week and came through with flying colors! They are recovering nicely! One is spoken for and the other two may be available for adoption as well.
We need donations to help cover the expense of the operations!

So this spring will bring baby mice, baby ground squirrels and baby ratties to Critter Camp!
