Time to order Easter presents for the rescues at Critter Camp from our Wish List on Amazon!

Say Hi to Jinx!
Jinx came to live at Critter Camp as a swap for one of our adoptable bunnies. He is tiny but a little devil :) He will be glad not to be pestered by hoomans anymore!


We  are still waiting for a reply on our offer on the land!   We do have a few other prospects in mind too. Critter Camp will receive the second half of the funds in March and will have land within a couple of months!
Keep up to date with Pepsi Project 1 here on our site!

(Thank you Penny for the write up :))
It's almost spring time, and that means spring cleaning! Have you discovered any unusual items that just don't belong in your home or garage anymore? Here's a great opportunity to do some cleaning and raise some funds for Critter Camp!
Mysterious & Reassuring, "Franklin Park's most interesting Consignment Shop," has named Critter Camp as its Not-for-Profit Beneficiary for the month of April 2012! The shop will give Critter Camp 100% of the proceeds of all April sales!
So, if you have something that fits the bill (see list below), please consider giving it to M&R for Critter Camp's benefit in April. 
Thanks for helping Critter Camp!
