Adoption fee

Meet Optimus Prime

Due to health and safety concerns, we are now pursuing adoptions with additional safety measures in place. We will be asking potential adopters to discuss their individual preferences and comfort levels involving safety precautions during the greeting/adoption day step. We are HIGHLY suggesting all participants wear facial coverings, stay at least six feet apart, & use sanitization of all surfaces, and hands before and after contact.

Estimated birth date: 2/20/2019

Personality: Friendly toward other animals, Lazy, Nervous, Sweet

Favorite treats: Yogies

Favorite toys and activities: Sleeping in an igloo and eating.

Potty trained: Litter box trained

This animal daily routine: Greetings when a person walks by, food bowl filled in the evening and morning.

BFF: Optimus Prime’s BFF is Megatron

Other species this pet has been exposed to and reaction: Rabbit, interested in hay. Cat, no reaction.

Health concerns: Optimus Prime has an abnormality on the tip of his nose, it doesn't bother him a bit but it should be monitored for changes in shape or size.

Behavioral concerns: Optimus Prime LOVES treats and is overeager to grab them, which can result in an accidental bite. To help with this problem, we are doing visits without treats and visits where treats only come after lots of petting and love, so he learns that hands don't just mean treats. We never approach him fingers first and only offer our hands with palms open or fists closed. Megatron & Optimus Prime are in our trust training program for mouthiness.

Other notes: He is very sweet! Forehead scratches are his favorite. He and his brother have not had a poop accident in his foster’s care. They will pee on the fleece inside of their igloo or in their litter box, but nowhere else in the cage.

Optimus Prime & Megatron found their way to MNPPR after their previous owner could no longer keep them in their home.

Due to our rescue being foster based, not all foster homes are located in Saint Paul, MN. Optimus Prime’s foster parent prefers to meet at the Burnsville PetSmart -14290 Plymouth Ave, Burnsville, MN 55337 for meet & greets, & adoptions.

Our adoption process can be found on our website here:

Fee: Optimus Prime & Megatron have a combined adoption fee of $25

We absolutely DO NOT SHIP ANIMALS! Please do not ask.

All rats within MNPPR have tested negative for the Seoul virus before being placed up for adoption.
