Chip & Dale (adoption pending)

These brothers were born from an oops litter when a couple purchased some rats from a pet store and they got a big surprise when two of the girls ended up being pregnant. Despite arriving with mites, and being extremely skinny, after just a few weeks with our loving foster family, they are now healthy and put on some weight and muscle from being able to run and explore (as baby rats should!). Chip & Dale are both extremely friendly and curious boys, always willing to come to the human and to ...

Iggy & Nimbus

These brothers were born June 22, 2021 after their mother was left at the SPCA Gatineau, pregnant. They were adopted, but sadly were recently returned due to allergies.

Both are extremely sweet, comfortab...

Frey & Loki

Brothers Frey & Loki are estimated to be born Dec. 20, 2020. They are friendly though still a little bit shy. Once they are out of their cage and used to their new environment, both will clamber all over their human as long as we are calm and don't make any sudden loud noises. Considering how young they are, their progress has been incredibly quick and likely with just a bit of patience and persistence, they will become extremely friendly and social boys. To apply to adopt Frey & Loki, ple...

Mirabelle & Leonor (spayed)

Meet adopted sisters, Mirabelle & Leonor. These two girls were born Oct. 25 and Oct. 23, 2020 respectively. However, they get along wonderfully as they were raised together. Mirabelle is a half-wild rat, meaning her father was a wild rat, while her mother was a fully domesticated (and extremely friendly) pet rat who had been abandoned outside.

Ned & Edbert

Meet brothers Ned and Edbert. These two were actually surrendered to the Rescue when only a few weeks old and thus benefited from being socialized since a very early age. Both boys are extremely friendly and social, though Ned is definitely the more outgoing one. Edbert loves to be around people, and playing and cuddling with his brother, but he's definitely less happy about being carried around. These boys were born in July of 2019, making them just over a year old. Unfortunately both are...

Poppy, Pixie, Ivy & Lucy

These 4 tightly bonded girls range from 8 months old (Lucy) to the eldest, being 18 months old (Ivy). Sisters Poppy and Pixie are estimated to be about 1 year old. We would like to find them a home together as each of them relies strongly on the other for comfort and confidence. Of the 4, Lucy is definitely the most shy. She may never exactly be a human rat, as she much prefers the company of her sisters. Once she's out of the cage, she's quite confident in exploring and running around on her...

Ronnie & Ru

Meet adorable sisters, Ronnie & Ru. These two fun, quirky girls were estimated to be born around Sept. of 2019. They are inseparable and absolutely love chilling together in their hammocks. They are extremely friendly and well-socialized and came from a home that obviously cared a lot about them, but unfortunately just ended up with too many rats to have the time and resources to provide for them in the long-run. Especially seeing as Ru is hairless, she will need a family that is knowledg...
