Welcome to Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue!

Welcome to Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue!

For a long time, we have seen the need for an official, registered pet rat rescue in Ottawa. We are now proud and excited to have our dream realized! Whether it's finding a new loving home for a rat in need, or giving advice about health, diet and behaviour to a rat-parent, we hope to make a positive difference in the lives of pet rats. Please visit our website often to see what events were are planning, who is waiting for a forever home, and what fun ratty news we'd like to share. We welcome all comments and questions.
