Peach & Rosa

Peach & Rosa

Peach & Rosa are sweet sisters whom we estimate to be between 10 months to 1 year old. They were originally surrendered to the SPCA Gatineau with a much older girl who unfortunately already had PT symptoms as well as some respiratory issues; the older girl had to eventually be euthanized, leaving just Rosa and Peach.

These two girls are a hoot! They explore, scamper everywhere and love to cuddle and tussle in equal amounts.

They are not exactly the cuddliest girls, but they love their humans and are not shy at all about being picked up or held.

We would love to find these girls a loving home together where they will be given plenty of space and enrichment to continue their socialization.

If you think Peach & Rosa would be the perfect companions for you, please fill out an Adoption Application form.

Tokey & Titchy

Tokey & Titchy

If you’re looking for the sweetest boys in town, look no further!

Tokey and Titchy were surrendered to the Rescue when their previous human unfortunately had to be admitted to the hospital and could no longer care for them. They are extremely well socialized, so sweeet and cuddly and clearly were well-loved for their whole lives.

These two boys absolutely love each other, but also crave human affection. They enjoy chilling with their foster mom on her shoulders or in her lap and will even take a short nap.

When they are awake, they love to explore and accept treats. These two sweethearts are estimated to be 8.5 months old, meaning they were born some time in June of 2023.

If you would like to take home these perfect boys, please fill out an Adoption Application form.

Todd (neutered)

Todd (neutered)

Meet Todd! This shy rex-y boy was abandoned inside an apartment complex and thankfully picked the right family’s kitchen cabinets to invade!
The couple who found him fed him for months and even built him a little shelter in their kitchen cabinets while trying to lure him out or catch him.

After several close calls, Todd was finally safely trapped in October of 2023. We estimate he is about 1 year old.

Not surprisingly, Todd is a little bit shy, but he’s a total sweet heart.
He will be available for adoption 2 weeks after his neuter on Jan. 12, 2024.

Todd is looking for a forever home where he will be joining an existing colony of rats (or preferably some lady rats!).

Mabel, Jasmine and Amelia

Mabel, Jasmine and Amelia

This adorable mother-daughter trio are perfect in every way!

We were told Mabel (mother), is about 1.5 years old, but we sincerely think she’s closer to just 1 year old, as she still has so much energy and spunk. It’s possible the previous owner got her age wrong since she herself got them from someone who had them before. Mabel is a total attention hog, and though she takes the longest to warm up to new people, once you have her trust, she’ll be the one demand you pay attention to her.

Her daughters, Jasmine (black & white) and Amelia (white) are estimated to be 9 months old. But again, they could be younger based on how energetic they are. They are just as friendly and outgoing as Mabel, though they have a slight preference to adventure and exploration over riding shoulders or being carried around.

Every one of them is friendly, outgoing and bonded to their foster family almost right away.

Mabel arrived with a slightly infected left eye, but after 2 weeks of antibiotic eye drops, she’s now fully recovered and the three of them are ready to find their forever home!

To adopt this wonderful trio, please fill out an adoption application form.

Reed, Angus & Nico

Reed, Angus & Nico

Reed, Angus and Nico of three of the sweetest boys you will ever meet.
They were surrendered to the SPCA Gatineau in September of 2023 with mild respiratory infections. We estimate that they were born some time in March of 2023. The staff at the SPCA could see right away that they were sweet, loving boys who craved attention and wanted to explore, but with their limited space and time, they contacted the Rescue hoping that we would have a foster home available that could give them the love and attention they craved.

So after undergoing a short treatment for mild respiratory infections, all three boys were transferred to the Rescue where they quickly won over their foster family.

Angus is the most outgoing of the three while Reed and Nico can be dramatic, but all three are so incredibly sweet, you’ll just want to snuggle them and bring them with you everywhere you go. All three enjoy their playtime, but just as much enjoy hanging out with you in a hood, pouch or on your shoulder.

In typical boy-rat fashion, they love to cuddle and eat!

If you are looking for the perfect tiny companions to add to your family, please fill out an Adoption Application. These boys will win you over in a heartbeat – Guaranteed!

Fern & Ivy

Fern & Ivy

Sister Fern and Ivy were purchased by their previous owner from Pet Smart in May of 2023. Thus, we estimate that they are about 6 months old currently. Unfortunately their previous owner lost interest and thus these girls were banned to the garage until her father reached out to us and we were able to find a foster to take them in.

Since arriving in their new foster home, they have really come out of their shell and their personalities shine!

Below are a few words from their foster family:

Ivy is a very active and curious girl who loves to explore and climb. She’s friendly and funny and makes us laugh often with her antics. She’s always waiting right at the door, looking for some love and attention.

Fern is more reserved and still quite cautious of humans – she will usually run and hide when the cage is opened, but is slowly becoming more tolerant of being handled. She will often come out for treats!

Both girls enjoy being cuddled up in the safety of a hoodie or pocket and carried around the house.

These girls are looking for a loving forever home together as a bonded pair. To adopt, please fill out an adoption application form.

Serein & Tsunami

Serein & Tsunami

This pair of sisters were surrendered to by their previous owner who found herself unable to provide the care they needed.

The foster confessed that she may have chosen their names a little bit too soon. The first day she took them home, Serein found a cozy spot to lounge and took a long nap, while Tsunami spent her entire playtime tearing around the play room, trying to climb the walls. Thus, she decided to name the “calm” girl Serein.

Little did she know, within the next 24 hours, Serein decided that she had recharged her batteries, and she and her sister more or less decided BOTH of them would like to climb the cage door, begging to come out any chance they get, and once let out, they would climb every surface available – including their foster mom1

These two girls are estimated to be be less then one year old. We suspect they were born some time February or March of 2023. They must be adopted together as a bonded pair

If you’re ready to welcome an active, playful pair into your family, please fill out an Adoption Application form.

Serena & Venus

Serena & Venus

Below are some words from their foster family:

Serena is just like her name; sweet and calm. She likes to find a warm spot to nap and is always the last one up for treats. You can find her relaxing in her cube, under all her friends.

Venus is definitely a favourite in our house. Like her name suggests, she’s a lover. her favourite thing to do is give tons of kisses, whether it’s our hands, faces or even our ears. She is the first one to come get treats and sometimes sleeps at the front of the cage in case we have time for a quick snuggle. She is the most active of the four girls.

These two girls are estimated to be be less then one year old. We suspect they were born some time February or March of 2023. They must be adopted together as a bonded pair, or with their other sisters, Sakkari and Aryna.

To adopt, please fill out an Adoption Application form.

Sakkari & Aryna

Sakkari & Aryna

A few words about them from their Foster Family:

Sakkari: This strong and friendly girl is a cuddler. She loves to snuggle in my neck and she can stay there for as long as I let her. She runs to the front of the cage whenever she hears us go by.

Aryna: My little drama queen! She lets out little screams (when she doesn’t agree with my decisions of when we should interact), but don’t let it fool you, it’s all an act. She is a little more shy then Sakkari but has been coming out of her shell more and more.

These two girls are estimated to be be less then one year old. We suspect they were born some time February or March of 2023. They must be adopted together as a bonded pair, or with their other sisters, Serena and Venus.

Velma & Daphne

Velma & Daphne

Sisters Velma & Daphne were purchased from PetSmart about a year ago, and unfortunately they were nor very brave or social. Their previous owner tried what she could to win them over, but having no experience with rats, she had them a year and made no progress and thus decided to surrender them to the Rescue.

Luckily we had an amazing foster who was able to almost immediately gain their trust and in the three weeks they were with that foster, they learned to enjoy hanging out with humans, taking food from them (gently) and even being brave enough now to wait at the door to come out for some cuddles.

They are unfortunately still quite easily startled and Velma especially is still quite wary of people.

Velma and Daphne are tightly bonded and must go to an experienced home together.
If you think you’re up for the challenge, or you have lots of experiencing winning over skiddish rats, please fill out an Adoption Application form.

Jerry & Tommy

Jerry & Tommy

Jerry and Tommy were surrendered to the Rescue after their previous owner had to move and decided she couldn’t take the pet rats with her. It just so happened that they were both still babies because she had just purchased them 3 weeks ago, but unfortunately she couldn’t remember the name of the breeder she got Tommy from, and the pet store she bought Jerry from only allows 7 days to return an unwanted pet.

The good news is that we had a foster family become available, and so we were able to take in these boys on short notice.

Jerry is a sweet, curious boy who loves to explore, climb and have his own independence, while Tommy is a total snuggle bug and lover. Both of them will cover you in gentle kisses.

These boys are estimated to be born some time in May of 2023. They are still babies and have tons of growing to do. We hope to find them a loving forever home where they will be given lots of room and enrichment to be able to continue developing mentally and physically.

Faye, Raven & Angel

Faye, Raven & Angel

This beautiful trio of sisters were originally purchased from a breeder online, but unfortunately, their original owner decided they could not take their rats with them when they moved. They couldn’t remember the name of the breeder, so instead, she thankfully reached out to us hoping that we could take them in. She believes that they are all about one year old, making them born some time in May of 2022.

All three girls are incredibly friendly, even though they arrived quite skinny, with extremely thin and poor fur and smelling like cigarette smoke.

Thankfully, after three weeks of being pampered by their foster mom, getting tons of yummy fresh foods and a clean environment, their coats are now starting to fill in and shine! Just like their personalities.

Of the three, Faye is a little dare-devil and adventurer, never wanting to stay still. Raven is a lover, and is always staying close to her foster mom. And finally, Angel is just like her name’s sake: sweet, curious and full of kisses.

We hope to find these adult girls a loving forever home who will pamper them, care for them, and give them the proper care they need for the rest of their lives.

Luca (neutered) & Dusty

Luca (neutered) & Dusty

Update: Sept. 17, 2023: Luca has now been neutered and after 2 weeks of introductions, he and his brother Dusty are now best friends again and ready to find their forever home together!
Update: Aug. 15, 2023: Luca has unfortunately developed some hormonal behaviour and will be neutered prior to becoming available again for adoption.

Luca and Dusty were part of a group of 14 baby rats who were dumped outside in a Brockville cemetery. Due to sheer coincidence, a kind couple were at the time out walking their dog and they watched as a woman with a plastic bag abandoned them outside to fend for themselves.

We estimate that they were born some time in early April of 2023.

Luckily, all of the babies are incredibly sweet, easy to handle, and just want some love. They didn’t even try to run away from their rescuers who were able to just scoop them up by hand. Luca and Dusty are no exception! They are always happy to see their fosters and love to cover their hands in kisses. Dusty especially loves to give kisses!

Blizzard Boys

Blizzard Boys

If you’re looking to add some love and cuteness to your life (and a healthy dose of chaos) look no further! The Blizzard Boys are here! We estimate they were born some time mid-March 2023.

Originally surrendered through the SPCA Gatineau, they were immediately transferred to the Rescue due to the lack of space at the SPCA. They were part of an unplanned litter when their previous human found himself with too many rats and all of the sexes mixed up.

These boys are so sweet, so curious and full of shenanigans.

There are 6 boys in total, and although they look nearly identical upon first glance, there are actually some major differences: 4 of the 6 boys actually have wavy rex hair and curly whiskers and several of them have brown nose smudges. Their personalities also vary from the extremely friendly, to the extremely chaotic! We’d like to find them all homes as pairs or in a larger group.

To apply to adopt a pair or more of these sweet boys, please fill out an adoption application form.

Pebbles & Piccolo

Pebbles & Piccolo

These sweet brothers are estimated to be born some time in early February of 2023. They were part of a large hoarding situation in Gatineau/Hull area and were luckily saved by a kind woman who spent weeks and weeks saving hundreds of pet rats from being exterminated.

They are currently tiny, excitable bundles of energy and joy and spend so much of their time tumbling and playfighting with each other. To follow their crazy antics, please visit their foster dad’s Instagram @ratcafe14

Pebbles and Piccolo now just need a loving forever home where their human family will give them lots of love, care, attention and the space and stimulation to grow into being happy, chubby boys.

Totoro & Jiji (experienced home only)

Totoro & Jiji (experienced home only)

Meet the extremely handsome Totoro and Jiji who are looking for a home to call their own.

These two boys are estimated to be around 1 year old, but it’s very hard to know their exact age as they were found as strays outside in a box in Montreal. They spent a few weeks at the Montreal SPCA where they were treated for parasites, then were transferred into our care where they would have more one-on-one attention and hopefully a better chance of finding a home.

Of the two, Totoro is definitely braver. He is now crawling into his foster parent’s arms on his own and is very curious about all the new sounds and smells. He is also fiercely protective of Jiji and the two are always cuddled together. Their foster has also reported some territorial/protective behaviour inside the cage which is why we prefer an experienced home.

Jiji on the other hand is a little more cautious and will need someone with patience and a gentle hand to coax him out of his shell. He’s a total sweetheart when you do get him to come out, but he’s simply not as brave or confident as Totoro. The two are tightly bonded.
