Ellie (sponsor me!)

Sweet elderly Ellie was surrendered to the rescue covered in lice, with a respiratory infection and initial symptoms of PT (pituitary tumor). We were honestly not even sure if little old Ellie would make it. Miraculously, with the love and care of her foster, plus the right antibioitcs and cabergoline to treat her PT symptoms, Ellie is almost completely back to being a normal rat. She's a little cuddlier than most, and she does sleep a lot, but you would never know that just a few weeks ago, ...

Duckie & Dove

Meet friendly, adorable sisters, Duckie & Dove. These two were born Dec. 28, 2019, and have been handled since the day they were born.

Duckie & Dove need a home where they will have lots of space, toys, and plenty of time outside of their cage to interact with their humans where they can live out the rest of their lives together. If you are interested in adop...

Ella & Ninja

Meet sisters Ella and Ninja! We're not sure if they're really sisters, but they cuddle, play and overall get along wonderfully. Both girls are super active and curious. They're much more interested in exploring than cuddling right now, but that's probably partially also because they are estimated to be only 5-6 months old. Ella and Ninja are confident and will do well in any family that can give them plenty of toys, time to run around outside their cage and lots to explore. If you'd like t...

Seth & Rogan

These boys were transferred to us from the Gatineau SPCA after no one seemed to want to adopt them. We can't understand why, because honestly, Seth and Rogan are two of the sweetest boys we have ever met. They are curious, extremely gentle, and wonderful little beings who are calm and tolerate handling very well. Being picked up isn't their favourite thing, especially not for Seth who tends to be a bit squirmy, but once they are in your arms and have a nice sweater to snuggle into, they are c...

These two friendly, curious boys unfortunately waited months at a dog pound in Montreal before they were transferred to us for a better chance at adoption. As per their foster dad: "Both are still fidgety and get scared of sudden movements or unusual noises, but are very friendly and sociable. Squeaky loves being pat on the top of his head, and Van Damme likes to burrow into your shirt. You might need to get these two adopted AS...

Simon, Theodore & Alvin

Meet brothers (from left to right), Simon, Theodore & Alvin. These three are so similar, yet so different! They make the perfect trio of trouble-makers who will bring a smile to anyone's face. First, we have Alvin. He is the leader, the brave one and always the first one begging to come out at the cage door. He is almost always snuggling with someone or otherwise wrestling with one of his brother. Next, we have Simon. He is a total goofball who loves to play. The slightest ruffle of hi...

Beau (neutered) & Hugo

Meet Beau (neutered) and Hugo. Both boys were originally strays. Beau was found wandering around outside in Ottawa, while Hugo was found outside in Belleville. These two were likely made for each other, as they got along almost immediately and are both estimated to be around 6 months old. Of the two, Beau is much calmer and almost serene. It doesn't take him long to warm up to new people, and once he's decided he can trust you, he's fine with being picked up, and even cuddling a little. Hugo ...

Thankfully, the human who had them before had a change of heart and decided she would no longer feed her snakes live rats. Understandably, Orbit and Flare are nervous about being touched or picked up. They absolutely LOVE to...

Mathias & Murmur

These brothers are extremely friendly and curious. They come to the cage door for kale (Mathias' favourite treat!), run around and explore in their play room, and enjoy interacting with their foster brothers. They absolutely LOVE to climb all over their foster mom and get the occasional head scratch. Mathias especially will beg at the door with his nose stuck as far out as possible. Though they are easy to handle, they aren't quite cuddly yet. Their natural curiosity means they would much rat...
