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.

We are 12 Days Old!

Hope's baby bunnies are 12 days old today!  These cute little bundles of fur are getting bigger, and have just started to open their eyes.  We even had one little bunny flop itself over the edge of the nest box and do some exploring in the great big world of the kennel.  After this happened we realized we needed to make some nest adjustments because it couldn't get back in to snuggle. After some creative thinking we now have a great setup!  While we were checking and moving the babies, Mrs. Heemskerk spent some quality time with Hope making friends.  Hope loves her veggies and her berry yogurt treats!

Hope is making great progress in being comfortable with noise and new people.

So brave.

Getting so big!
