Todd (neutered) (adopting pending)

Meet Todd! This shy rex-y boy was abandoned inside an apartment complex and thankfully picked the right family's kitchen cabinets to invade! The couple who found him fed him for months and even built him a little shelter in their kitchen cabinets while trying to lure him out or catch him. After several close calls, Todd was finally safely trapped in October of 2023. We estimate he is about 1 year old. Not surprisingly, Todd is a little bit shy, but he's a total sweet heart. He will be ...

Miso (neutered) & Tako (neutered)

*** In order to adopt, you must be an existing client of a vet clinic that sees rats or have been accepted as a new client at a clinic that sees rats *** Brothers Miso & Tako were surrendered to the rescue as day-old babies in March of 2021. They were quickly adopted and until recently, have been spoiled and lived a rather wonderful life. Unfortunately, Miso became hormonal aggressive and their adopters decided that they could not handle this new development and did not want to go through the...

Ebby & Bob (neutered)

*** In order to adopt, you must be an existing client of a vet clinic that sees rats or have been accepted as a new client at a clinic that sees rats *** Ebby and Bob are an odd couple for sure. Ebby was actually born at the rescue on Aug. 30, 2020. Her mother was a domesticated rat who was dumped outside and her father was a wild rat. This means Ebby is half-wild. She's not a big fan of being held, although she will tolerate it if it means play time. And she's not a big fan of being pet....

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 ...

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 ...

Frankie (neutered) and Toby

These boys are estimated to be 4-5 months old, with Toby being about 1 month younger than Frankie. Both these boys had a very rough start to life. Toby was sold as snake food, but thankfully, the snake started shedding, and so the people who bought him decided to give him away. Thank goodness, because Toby is the sweetest, most loving rat ever. He loves people! Every time he sees his foster dad walk by, he usually sprints to the door in hopes of being picked up. Poor Frankie was abandoned...

Harvey (neutered)

Meet shy but friendly and curious Harvey. Transferred to us from the Bramptom SPCA as part of an eviction/seizure, Harvey was originally living with his brother, Remy. Unfortunately, they started fighting non-stop, and as a result both boys had to be neutered and separated. Now several weeks after his neuter, Harvey and his brother still aren't getting along, so we decided that it would be best for Harvey to find himself some girlfriends instead. Estimated at around 10-12 months old, Harve...

Georges (neutered)

Things really didn't start out well for Georges. Originating from a hoarder seizure in Brampton Ontario, Georges came to us very aggressive and biting every hand that tried to touch him. He was also missing half his tail and had fresh bite wounds all over his tail and rear. Once at the Rescue, the first thing we did was book him a neuter. Now, about 3 months in, the neuter has done it's magic and you almost can not recognize the same rat anymore. George is now a bouncy, happy, friendly, L...

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...

Cooper (neutered) & Bobby (neutered)

Meet brothers, Cooper and Bobby. These two were found on the side of a highway in a box along with 22 other rats in St. Marthe QC. It is hard to say exactly how old they are, but we're guessing anywhere between 6 months and 1 year old. These two did not have it easy, as they both came in dirty, infested with parasites and were extremely aggressive with people and other rats. Thankfully, both have now completely changed after their respective neuters and now are friendly, curious and qu...

Coville (neutered) & Jackson

Brothers Coville and Jackson are rambunctious, fun-loving, friendly boys who were transferred to us from the SPCA in Gatineau. They are estimated to be anywhere between 5-10 months old. Both of them came in with some mild respiratory issues, but after a few weeks in a clean, stress-free environment, their lungs have cleared up and these boys are now looking for a forever home to call their own. They are both extremely active and high-energy rats and will need a large enclosure as well as lots...

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 ...

Conrad & Marvin (neutered)

Conrad (albino) and Marvin (agouti) grew up together and have never been separated from each other. These two cuddle constantly and when they are in their cage, are often sleeping in a pile, or eating right next to each other. Of the two, Conrad is brave, outgoing, and extremely confident in himself. People don't make him nervous at all. He loves to run around on the ground and comes when you call. On the other hand, Marvin is a nervous wreck. New sounds, sudden movements, and especially new ...

Riley (neutered) & Chip

Are you looking for a pair of hilarious, friendly, super hand-tame boys who will take every and any opportunity to climb up into your arms? If so, then look no further! Riley and Chip are a bonded pair of brothers who could not be any more social. They live for out-times and love nothing more than when their humans come by to say hello. Imagine, tiny rat-sized puppies staring at you from behind a crate door: this is exactly Chip and Riley any time you walk by the cage and DON'T stop to say...

Romulus (neutered) & Remus

These two brothers were originally meant to be snake food. Thankfully, a kind lady stepped in and was able to save them from that fate at a fairly early age. Estimated to be about 6 months old, Romulus and Remus have tons of energy, love to explore, but still need a home that is patient and can continue to bring out their confidence and true personalities. As of late November 2017, Romulus has been exhibiting some hormonal behaviour. He will be neutered Dec. 14, 2017 and will be on medical ho...

Clyde (neutered) & TJ

Meet funny, curious, friendly boys Clyde and TJ. These boys are an estimated 4-6 months old and still have plenty of growing left to do. The boys are typical fun-loving, excitable, super active boys who will take every opportunity to explore, run around and sniff things. They are very fond of people and have no problems at all being picked up or handled. However, they would definitely prefer to run around and climb instead of just being held all the time. They have way too much energy to just...

Ben & Sailor

Meet brothers Ben & Sailor. We know for sure that they were born some time in June of 2016 making them almost exactly 1 year old at the moment. Originally dumped in a box at the SPCA in Gatineau, these boys had been adopted into a forever home. Unfortunately, due to their human's increasingly busy schedule, they could not longer be given the love and attention they deserved. Ben and Sailor are now back at the Rescue and once again looking for a place to call their own. Due to a period of n...

Clive (neutered)

Meet sweet, gorgeous boy Clive! He is estimated to be 7-10 months old, and has the energy level of a much younger rat! Clive may first appear as a little bit shy or timid, but he warms up to new people who are willing to give him a day or two to settle in. Once he's comfortable in his new home, he is always at the front of the cage, always peeking his head out to see if you're coming to visit, and always crawling all over you when he's out and about. Clive will even settle in for the occasio...

Teeth (neutered)

Teeth came to the rescue with his brother Rudy, absolutely terrified, unsocialized and quick to bite. It has taken him about 2 and a half months, a neuter, and lots of patience and love to slowly but steadily turn his life and bahaviour around. But boy oh boy, have things changed! As you can see from the pictures, Teeth is now a sweet, cuddly boys who wants nothing more than good food, a clean cage, and lots of places for him to run around and explore. He can still be a tiny bit nervous when ...

Rudy

Sweet, nervous Rudy was surrendered at 7 months of age with his equally terrified brother. Both boys had been purchased as babies from a pet store, but due to lack of socialization, and what looks like simple lack of knowledge about rats, their previous human grew to fear them. They had not been handled for months when they arrived at the Rescue. We were told that both boys would lunge and bite at every opportunity and that they had been separated as babies due to fighting and biting as well....

Whisky (neutered)

Meet adventurous Whisky! This sweet, fun-loving boy was transferred to us from the SPCA Gatineau after being given only a few days to live. Unfortunately, Whisky had a serious hormone issue and was always charging around looking for someone to bite. As soon as we received him at the Rescue, Whisky was neutered, and now 3 weeks later, he is sweet as can be, comes when called and is more than happy to be picked up and carried around. Other male rats do still annoy him, so Whisky's ideal h...

Sonny (neutered)

Meet sweet, playful Sonny! Gone is the nervous, bitey boy who was surrendered to us about a month ago. Sonny would love nothing more than a bunch of lovely lady rats and a human who would like to hand-wrestle. This boy is estimated to be 7 months old. He was rescued off Kijiji by a lovely lady who wanted to give him a better life with friends and a big cage. Unfortunately, it seemed that Sonny kept on biting his would be rescuer, and ended up being isolated in a cage alone due to the fact tha...
More

Jacob

Sweet Jacob has come a very long way and anyone who meets him now would never guess that he used to be a terrified, aggressive rescue from a hoarder. Estimated to be just over 1 year old, Jacob has been neutered, properly socialized and now just wants a home with 2 or more female rats and a human lap to call home. Although it will take a week or more for Jacob to warm up to you, once he does, he is the perfect cuddle-buddy and fellow couch-potato. He loves to just lay on your stomach or on yo...
