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.

Critter Camp 2014-2015!!!

Windsor Elementary is very excited to be continuing our Foster program with the Animal Rescue League of Iowa this school year. We have expanded into other grade levels and included more animals. Last year we fostered 11 rabbits, 3 guinea pigs, and 2 rats, all of whom were adopted by wonderful forever families. Over the summer we fostered an additional 4 rats and 3 degus. That's 23 animals who have been adopted!!!

This year we are starting off with even more knowledge of the care our foster pets require and a lot of support from our administration and the ARL. We would like to extend a special thank you to Mr. Nichols for supporting Critter Camp (and even wrangling bunnies last year!). We also want to thank Ms. Johnson for being instrumental in getting the program up and running, and all her continuing guidance. Lastly, THANK YOU Cindy, Michelle, Leah, Cecily, and everyone at the ARL for trusting Windsor students and staff to help you in your mission to provide animals with loving homes. We are honored to be a part of it. 

Drumroll, please...This year's first critter campers are:

Mr. Cuddles, Winter, Banana, and Lime, parakeets with personality, Mr. Israel's 4th grade

Caramel and Popcorn, outgoing rat girls, Mrs. Nelson's 3rd grade

Chester and Wilson, sweet rat boys, Mrs. Bolte's 3rd grade

Snowball, the friendliest rabbit we've ever met, Mrs. Heemskerk's 2nd grade

Sparkle Butterscotch, the guinea pig as cute as the name, Ms. Taylor's 1st grade

Thanks for continuing to support Windsor Critter Camp and the Animal Rescue League!
