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.

Today we said good bye to the last of our Davis County rescue bunnies.  Hope, Skeekers, Chessie, Maisy, Felix, Pepper and Gio all found their amazing forever homes.  We were sad to see them go, but so excited for them to start their time in their forever homes. Two of them are staying close to home because they were adopted by a counselor in another Des Moines School!  Chessie and Maisy will be spending their time running the counseling office at Amos Hiatt Middle School. Felix and Pepper are settling into their new home with a bunch of bunny friends on an acreage in Iowa City.  Hope and Skeekers are moving in with another ARL rescue bunny named Dean, and his awesome parents here in Des Moines.  Gio found his family after he woke up from his vet visit at the ARL a few weeks ago.  An awesome family fell in love with him and took him home that very day.

Saying goodbye was really tough, but it feels so good to know that these bunnies who started out life with nothing, have now found amazing loving homes.  We will miss them terribly, but watching them grow from the day they were born to their 12 week birthday has been the greatest experience.  That puts us up to 12 animals adopted since January!  Way to go Windsor 4th Grade!!!!
