Crazy Critters Inc.is a 501(c)(3) organization established to provide non-domestic, non-releasable animals with a safe and permanent home. The sanctuary has adopted animals that include reptiles, birds, and assorted wildlife.
Crazy Critters Inc. is a self-funded organization that serves as an FWC Amnesty location for some species of exotic animals. Currently, we are submitting applications to the state to do native species rehabilitation and release back into the wild. The animal facility is not open to the general public. Instead, hosting private educational tours, attending community events, and using social media to share the facility build and news.
The Crazy Plants For Crazy Critters 2020 plant sale fundraiser will help fund projects such as the perimeter fence required by FWC guidelines to rehabilitate and educate with some species of animals, facility signs, surety bonds, and most importantly ponds for slider turtles.
Curator of Crazy Critters Inc. Ken Purvee Jr. adds, "Aquatic slider turtles are the most surrendered animal in the pet trade, most likely due to the affordable costs and easy availability. As a member of the FWC Amnesty Program, turtles must stay at the Crazy Critters facility for the remainder of some species lives. An example is Redear Pond Sliders."
The nonprofit will host public educational tours and workshops based on the native and invasive plants or animals in our environment, how to ensure the future of beneficial animals such as insects, self-sustainability through food forest using permaculture methods, and more. Fall dates are currently being scheduled and will release on the companies website www.crazycrittersinc.com.
This year's sponsors include Akins Tree Care, Down To Dirt Plant Nursery, SeaLife Aquarium Supplies, Lenheart Electric, Byers Fence, and Litigation Solutions.
