The ARL made a video for their annual auction, and Critter Camp got to be a part of it!
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.

The time has come for our bunnies to find their forever homes. Gio found his forever home a week ago and his mom and siblings are ready for their turn. Read the posts below and check out their ARL link for more about them. All the bunnies will be adopted in pairs for $75.

This past week we spent some time doing a photo shoot with Cookie and Cream to make posters for each ARL location. Here are a few of the good ones. They have been with us for a long time and really need to find their forever home. The kids have been working very hard to help them be the greatest pets they can be. Please consider adopting these guys. They are so awesome and would make perfect pets for anyone!
