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...

Benji & Rick (neutered)

Benji and Rick are both estimated to be around 8 months old as of December 2021, and both were surrendered by their previous families who could not keep them for various reasons. Poor Benji is a sweet, but shy boy who lost his brother to an unknown illness and his previous human felt like he was simply lonely and deserved new rat friends. Rick on the other hand, was surrendered because he was a huge bully who was beating up his cage-mates. His previous owner unfortunately could not afford ...

Of the two, Prim is much more outgoing, while Rosey is a little bit more shy and will need some convincing before she agrees to be ...

Sisyphus & Atlas

These bothers, Sisyphus & Atlas were born in October of 2020. Their previous human unfortunately had to move out of the province on short notice, and could not take them with her. Thankfully, they are both healthy, extremely friendly, very neat and tidy, and the perfect boy rats for anyone who would love a cuddle buddy for movie nights. Of the two Sisyphus is the attention hog, who can never get enough of being held and human cuddles, whereas Atlas is the slightly more independent boy. Both a...

Cleo & Diana

Meet adopted sisters, Cleo & Diana. These two girls were born Oct. 25 and Oct. 23, 2020 respectively. However, they get along wonderfully as they were raised together. Cleo 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 to any ado...

Yuri & Neptune

Meet brothers, Yuri & Neptune. Born Aug. 22 or Aug. 23, 2020, these two are maybe technically actually cousins, but their mothers raised them together, literally taking turns feeding them. Because of this, the two are absolutely inseparable. Yes, they do have their scuffles here and there, like all brothers do, but they are always found curled around each other in the hammocks. Both Yuri and Neptune are curious and adventurous. They're not the biggest fans of being picked up, but at the same ...

Evita and Celeste were actually surrendered to the Rescue extremely pregnant. They had been neglected and bred by a young man who had no idea what he was doing. Poor Evita had...

Poe (neutered)

Poe had a very rough start to life as he was found on the side of a road in a box along with 23 other rats. Thankfully, several rescues were able to step in and help save them. Poe is one of 13 males we took in from that rescue situation. After months in our care, he has made incredible strides in becoming a well-socialized, relaxed rattie. Unfortunately, the one thing we have still not been able to find for him, is a friend. Poe does NOT get along with other males. He is quite dominant and d...
