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 extr...

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...

Gordon

Sweet and independant Gordon has the honor of being the oldest rat currently living at the Rescue. He was surrendered along with 10 other rats at the age of 1-1.5 years old in 2019, and has never been able to get completely healthy. To this day, Gordon requires twice daily doxycycline and prednisone to keep his respiratory infection under control. Good thing is, Gordon LOVES cooked food. He loves rice, pasta, baby food, veggie purees and all sort of human junk food, so getting him to take ...

Perriwinkle (neutered) & Cota

Meet brother's Perri and Cota. These two hilarious, bouncy boys would be a wonderful addition to any family who has the time and space to give them lots of attention and time-outside the cage to run, climb and generally go crazy. Of the two, Perri is definitely more active. He doesn't like to sit still, he's always curious about everything and is a very good climber (although he tends to get stuck on things and will need your help to get down). Cota on the other hand, calms down after about ...

This mother-daughter trio is looking for a loving home where they will be able to stay together. Storm (right) was only 2 or 3 months old when she was dropped off extremely pregnant at a pound in Montreal.

Storm is the sweetest, friendliest girl you will ever meet, and her daughters, who have all already caught up to her in size are very similar. Do you have a special place in your heart ...

Juno & Freya

Juno & Freya are bonded sisters who are an estimated 12-14 months old. They were originally purchased from a pet store, and after being passed on from one relative to another, they were finally surrendered to the Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue as their latest well-intended guardian could no longer keep them.

Meet brothers, Danny and Bailey. You won't find a more friendly, more outgoing pair anywhere! As you can see from their photo, they are always fighting for affection and it is pretty much a race to the door any time you walk by. There is nothing cuter than the way they perk up and come running out from their various play areas to come meet you at the door! Danny is currently on antibiotics for a severe Respiratory and Urinary Tract Infection. He seems to have responded to the medication we...

Gus & Jack

Meet brothers Gus and Jack. Even though they showed up covered in fleas with extremely thin, sparse fur, these boys were friendly as ever and always ready to give kisses. At 20-22 months old, they aren't exactly young, but don't let their age put you off. These boys are still full of energy and have so much love to give. Jack (left) has an old eye injury that has left a white film over his eye. It does not bother him at all and he does not require any special treatment or care. Jack absolutel...
