About Us

Welcome to our Critter Camp blog.
Windsor Elementary 4th Grade and the Animal Rescue League of Iowa are partnering to create "Critter Camp". The 4th grade classrooms will be caring for small animals from the ARL that are in need of foster care until they are ready for adoption. This blog will share about our foster critters' progress and their search for their forever home.

Our first Camper!

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first Critter Campers.  I just received word from Cindy at the ARL that we will be getting this cute little girl.  She is a female guinea pig who will be hanging with us to be sure she isn't pregnant before she is available for adoption.  If she isn't pregnant she will be available in February.  If she is, then we will be learning all about taking care of Mommy and any future babies.  Stay tuned for this adorable little critter's story and the name we choose for her.  We can't wait to meet her in a little over a week!

ARL Critter Camp Presentation

Click the link above to see a video from our ARL Critter Camp Presentation. Cindy and Lea from the Animal Rescue League of Iowa came to teach us all about how we will help the animals at the ARL while they wait for their forever home.  They also brought 2 cute baby rats for us to meet and hold.  They will be helping Cindy and Lea teach others about pet care and being a pet owner for life.
