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.

Welcoming our Newest Campers!
Today Ms. Cindy brought Ms. Johnson's class our new Critter Campers. We have 3 baby male Degus. They are a small rodent, kind of like a chinchilla. These guys are pretty cute and so far are very active. They love to run on their wheel and have been burrowing under the towels. Today we learned all about them and started getting them used to our smell. We are teaching them to be comfortable with people by putting our hands in the cage and letting them get to know us. We are still discussing the perfect names for these guys, so check back soon to find out!
