Helping the Community

The Critter Barn willingly shares information about animal care and husbandry, referrals for rehabilitation of wildlife, and animal related questions to the best of our ability.  Dozens of people have offered their time, advice and help over the years to me, so the Critter Barn could be knowledgeable and successful in raising animals, and I am happy to share with others in the same manner.

We receive calls about adoption of pet rabbits, abandoned bunny nests, taking in stray ducklings, chickens and unwanted pot bellied pigs. Because we are connected in a unique way to many folks involved with animals, we are able to help place animals sometimes. The Critter Barn is not a rescue organization.  We only adopt animals when needed for our own breeding. 

Our rabbits are pedigreed and we have a closed colony. Moving animals causes stress, and that can result in sickness. We encourage children and families to keep their pets and care for them "till death do you part" and thereby teach commitment, responsibility and perseverance. 

We have provided goat milk for wildlife, animal feed in emergencies, loaned equipment, and connect people to veterinarians, resources on the web, or share what we know to be as helpful as possible. 

You are welcome to leave your questions at our office by calling 616-748-1110 or emailing us at critterbarnfarm@gmail.com, or leave a message on our Facebook page. 

Thank you,

Mary Rottschafer, Executive Director
