WE HAVE MORE RATS LISTED ON AAP!
POLICIES OF PHILLY RAT RESCUE:
If you need to surrender rats to us, they become our property to adopt out or permanently home if they cannot be adopted. We do not return rats to you once they have been surrendered, so please be sure you definitely want to give them up before contacting us.
We do not have transportation or a pick-up service most of the time. If you have a rat or rats to surrender, they must be brought to either our primary foster home in Northeast Philadelphia, or one of our other foster homes in the Philadelphia/NJ areas.
Because we use our own personal funds and supplies to care for the rats we receive, depending on the generosity of outside donors usually only for our veterinary bills, we can often use donations of Oxbow and Native Earth/Envigo rat food, as well as cages.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADOPT, PLEASE EMAIL US FOR AN EMAIL ADOPTION APPLICATION: firstname.lastname@example.org
Adoption donation: $15.00 for solo rats, $25.00 for a pair. $10.00 for each additional rat after 2 being adopted at the same time to a maximum of $35.00.
If you are a new adopter, you must live within 50 miles of Philadelphia, PA.
Rats are adopted out as personal pets only.
You must be 21 and older to adopt from us.
We do not adopt single rats out unless they are rats that do not get along with other rats, such as an alpha male. Rats need the companionship of another rat or rats for optimal emotional and mental health.
