How was Tori's Critters Started?
Tori's Critters Started out as a small animal rescue in Cumberland County years ago, but closed in 2015 due to lack of funds and the inability to afford to become a 501c3.
During this time we had a special permit with NJF&W to rehome exotic animals
When the rescue was still open, we began bringing our many adoptable and personal pets to local schools to educate the public and raise funds for the rescue critter's care
After the rescue closed we decided to continue the classes because we love to educate and all the funds raised (minus travel fees) goes straight to caring for our pets, many of whom are rescues.
What services do you offer?
^ Going to schools, daycares, libraries, camps, etc to give Educational Critter Classes
Small Animal Experience
^ Going to all different types of parties, fairs, festivals, reunions, corporate events, etc. and allowing the guests to get some hands on, fun education with our critters.
We also do many volunteer sessions a year to give back to our community
