Peli & Mochi (adoption pending)

These two sweet girls are estimated to be born in late November of early December of 2022. They were part of two oops litters from when a young man purchased rats from someone on Kijiji and the girls turned out to be pregnant. Thankfully, he has been doing his best to take care care of them and to handle them every day, so both girls are already very friendly and sociable. All they need now, is a loving forever home that will give them tons of attention, lots of space to grow into, and the ca...

Goofy & Pluto (hold)

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!). Goofy & Pluto can both be a little bit shy when you first meet them. They are definitely coming a...

Bernadette & Shelby

These sisters are estimated to be born some time in March of 2022. Despite their young lives, they've had a bit of a rough start. Originally purchased from a breeder in Vars who also bred rats for a dog sport called "Barn Hunt", it's no surprise that they arrived extremely skiddish. Their original owner got bitten several times and despite her best efforts to socialize them, they continued to fear her and avoid her at all costs. Denise especially was so fearful she would let out a blood-curdl...

Ralph & Norton

Meet brothers Ralph and Norton. They are so friendly, so brave, and so full of energy. Estimated to be born May 20th, 2021 their mother was abandoned (pregnant) at a vet clinic. These two sweethearts were quickly adopted, but due to changes in their former adopter's personal life, they could no longer keep the boys and so Ralph and Norton are now back at the Rescue almost exactly 1 year later. They are still very sweet, curious and just needed a little TLC. Now we just need to find these br...

Lillikus & Serena

We believe these sisters were born June 20, 2021. They are still babies who have tons of energy, are extremely curious and need a loving home full of enrichment in order for them to grow and develop into happy, well-socialized rats. Of the two, Lillikus is the brave adventurer. She's always the first to greet the humans at the door and is also always the first to try new foods and explore new toys. On the other hand, her sister Serena tends to hang back a little bit, and requires a little mor...

Springfield & Dusty (neutered)

Springfield and Dusty are brothers who came from a very neglectful situation where they were left to live in filth, infested with mites and left to wallow in their own urine. Thankfully, we were able to take them in at a relatively young age, and despite how nervous they were at first, these boys have made huge progress. Estimated to be born between Dec. 23 and 25th of 2020, these boys are still young and have some growing left to do. Both boys are now neutered due to some aggressive beha...

Meet brothers Bug & Cowboy. These two were born March 9th, 2021. Their mother was originally surrendered to the rescue already pregnant. These boys were born at the Rescue and have been handled since day both.

Even though they are still so young, potential adoptions need to have an enclosure that meets or preferably exceeds our minimum requirements. Please...

Sora & Willet

These adorable baby sisters are estimated to be born between Feb. 21 and Feb. 23, 2021. They are young, friendly, healthy and still have so much learning and growing to do. Of the two, Sora (lighter colour) is a bit more brave and definitely the leader, while Willet (darker) will need some patience and lots of love to have her fully come out of her shell. If you are interested in adopting these two, please fill out an adoption application form.

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...

Ullysses & Ajax

Meet brothers, Ullysses & Ajax. These two are estimated to have been born in July of 2020. Both are extremely curious and friendly and don't mind at all being held. Since they came from a neglectful home previously, they are still a little bit nervous about being picked up, but it only takes the tiniest bit of coaxing to have them crawl onto your hand or arms themselves. If you're interest in adopting these two adorable brothers, please fill out an adoption application form.

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. Both girls are fine with being held and handled, however, due to their past, they would prefer an experienced home. Strong preference will be given ...

Lilac & Violet

This pair of sweet, dainty girls are estimated to be about 3 months old and 5 months old respectively. Initially part of a large seizure of rats in Montreal Quebec, they were transferred into the care of the Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue where they would hopefully have a better chance at finding a forever home. While Violet (dumbo) is brave, friendly and super outgoing, baby Lilac is still unfortunately quite shy and tends to want to hide. She definitely still isn't the most comfortable being picked ...
