Goofy & Pluto

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...

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...

Joseph & Giorno

Brothers Joseph & Giorno are estimated to have been born sometime in December of 2021. They arrived at the Rescue extremely skinny, but their previous owner had obviously still done a wonderful job socializing them, because they are friendly, loving and love to follow their foster mom around her entire apartment! Of the two, Giorno (black) is slightly more energetic and tends to be more of the leader, but Joseph (brown), is just as active, and the two of them get along great. They're always c...

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.

They are still very sweet, curious and just needed a little TLC. Now we just need to find these br...

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...

Bug & Cowboy

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. Both are extremely friendly and just need a little bit of time and encouragement to come out of their shell when they go into a new home.

Update: July 21, 2021. Unfortunately Othello's face abscess has returned. We will again treat with antibiotics and saline flushes. Update: June 10, 2021. Great news!

Unfortunately Othello appe...

Bryon & Percy (special needs)

A word from their foster family: "Bryon & Percy are really good boys. They use their litter box almost all the time and are very sweet. They still don't like to be picked up, and out times are often spent in one of the boxes, too shy to come out, but they don't run away at loud sounds, or us, and they love nibbling our fingernails and playing hide and seek." Bryon & Percy were surrendered to the Rescue with severe respiratory infections. After months of treatment with antibiotics, both...

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.

Max, Merlin & Marcel

This trouble-some trio were from two separate litters, but you would never guess because of how tightly bonded they now are. Of the 3, Marcel (right) was born Oct. 25, 2020, while his two adopted brothers were born just 2 days earlier. Marcel is also half-wild, meaning his father was a wild rat, while his mother was a fully domesticated (and extremely friendly) pet rat who had been abandoned outside. These three must be adopted together. Due to their past, they would prefer an experienced ...

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 ...
