We Are A Forever Home

The goal of this facility is to carve the invasive species issues by providing exotic pet owners with a safe alternative. Clients who suffer from health, financial, and other stressful situations cause them to need to rehome a pet that they have invested time and money into.

Many people have considered the convenience of releasing their pets into the Florida wild. It can be said that exotic pet owners love their pets much as one does their children. The thought that a pet might be happy being free in one of the forests or lakes of the state is not uncommon. These people are looking for a natural lifestyle versus what is suggested in the typical pet owners' manuals.

Crazy Critters Inc. helps these people in their time of need. Once accepted, the animal is housed in a natural environment as possible. Forever is a long time, especially, when it comes to reptiles and exotic animals.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Crazy Critters Inc. hopes to prevent poaching of wild specimen of fauna while keeping invasive species in check.

The programs we provide educate the public on the conservational importance of native and invasive plants and animals by using visual workshops, attending community events, and online social media presence.

While we will never be able to completely relieve the world of invasive plants and animals, we can make a huge difference.

We are an FWC Amnesty location for some species animals, contracted partners with the Lake County Sheriff's Office Animal Control Division, assist multiple neighboring Animal Control Departments, and aid the national community with proper rehoming of exotic animals.

Proudly, we have helped over one thousand people who were facing life-changing events such as loss of job, home, limb, or life rehome an exotic animal properly.

These animals are not rehomed to the general public and instead only to educational facilities licensed by the state to house exotic animals.

Our educational programs are in the process of growing and we are excited to become more hands-on with our young community so we can make more impressions in order to inspire the next generation of environmentalists, conservationists, biologists, zoologists, and more!
