At Critter Jungle, we support the ethical treatment of all life. Each and every day pets are neglected, mistreated, abused and left to fend for themselves. While many choose to turn a blind eye, we do everything we can to better the lives of our fury, feathered and scaled friends.
We are proud supporters of many animal adoption programs across our city. We promote rescue as the #1 source of a new pet. Critter Jungle is an official partner of “The Cat Rescue Network” and is an official “PAL Partners” location. These programs allow us to temporarily house cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and an assortment of other small animals, while searching for their forever home. This is a great alternative to dealing with the direct sale of animals from large breeding facilities.
Puppy Mills have become a huge concern in the pet industry. Many companies choose to purchase puppy’s from large facilities, in order to save on costs. Unfortunately, these “Mills” are often irresponsible, and put sales well above the health of their animals. For this reason, we do not sell ANY puppy’s what-so-ever. Instead, we support local rescues and help them to raise money towards their cause. Take a look at our “Rescue Events” page for more information
