Mallow & Boodle (hold)

Update: April 29, 2024 Mallow & Boodle will need a final treatment of parasite medication on May 13, 2024.

These two boys are a little more unsure about being handled, bu...

Reed, Angus & Nico

Reed, Angus and Nico of three of the sweetest boys you will ever meet. They were surrendered to the SPCA Gatineau in September of 2023 with mild respiratory infections. We estimate that they were born some time in March of 2023. The staff at the SPCA could see right away that they were sweet, loving boys who craved attention and wanted to explore, but with their limited space and time, they contacted the Rescue hoping that we would have a foster home available that could give them the love and ...

Fern & Ivy

Sister Fern and Ivy were purchased by their previous owner from Pet Smart in May of 2023. Thus, we estimate that they are about 6 months old currently. Unfortunately their previous owner lost interest and thus these girls were banned to the garage until her father reached out to us and we were able to find a foster to take them in. Since arriving in their new foster home, they have really come out of their shell and their personalities shine! Below are a few words from their foster family:...

Wanda & Lilith (spayed)

Sisters Wanda and Lilith were part of a large seizure at the Montreal SPCA. We have very little information about them, except that it's suspected they were originally bred to be snake food. The Montreal SPCA found themselves with over 50 rats and very little space, so these two were transferred to us to give them a better chance of being adopted. Unfortunately Wanda and Lilith arrived extremely scared. They would literally scream every time you touch them or even attempt to pick them up. Lil...

Serein & Tsunami

This pair of sisters were surrendered to by their previous owner who found herself unable to provide the care they needed. The foster confessed that she may have chosen their names a little bit too soon. The first day she took them home, Serein found a cozy spot to lounge and took a long nap, while Tsunami spent her entire playtime tearing around the play room, trying to climb the walls. Thus, she decided to name the "calm" girl Serein. Little did she know, within the next 24 hours, Serein...

Serena & Venus

Below are some words from their foster family: Serena is just like her name; sweet and calm. She likes to find a warm spot to nap and is always the last one up for treats. You can find her relaxing in her cube, under all her friends. Venus is definitely a favourite in our house. Like her name suggests, she's a lover. her favourite thing to do is give tons of kisses, whether it's our hands, faces or even our ears. She is the first one to come get treats and sometimes sleeps at the front of ...

Sakkari & Aryna

A few words about them from their Foster Family: Sakkari: This strong and friendly girl is a cuddler. She loves to snuggle in my neck and she can stay there for as long as I let her. She runs to the front of the cage whenever she hears us go by. Aryna: My little drama queen! She lets out little screams (when she doesn't agree with my decisions of when we should interact), but don't let it fool you, it's all an act. She is a little more shy then Sakkari but has been coming out of her shell ...

Jerry & Tommy

Jerry and Tommy were surrendered to the Rescue after their previous owner had to move and decided she couldn't take the pet rats with her. It just so happened that they were both still babies because she had just purchased them 3 weeks ago, but unfortunately she couldn't remember the name of the breeder she got Tommy from, and the pet store she bought Jerry from only allows 7 days to return an unwanted pet. The good news is that we had a foster family become available, and so we were able to ...
