Available Rescues     

Welcome to the rescue page - here we have a listing of all of the rats we are currently fostering. If interested in any, please fill out the adoption application located at the bottom of this page. We have provided you with a "quick link" list so you can easily navigate this page.

With each foster, we provide a great amount of care. They are fed Suebee's mix with fruits and vegetables (plus any special diet for sick rats) and are housed in proper caging depending on their situation when they come in to us (special "nurseries" for mothers and their litters, Martin's cages for the other rats). Once the rats are ready for adoption, their picture is posted on this page, along with their gender, coat colors/markings, name, and personality.

Feel free to email me with any questions you may have regarding a rat you see on this page or how we work here at Rusty Rattery. If you are interested in seeing more photographs of any of the rats, please ask!

  1. All of these rats are rescues. Therefore, they are to go to homes as "pet only". None will be available for breeder homes unless otherwise stated.
  2. Rats must be adopted out in same sex pairs, unless you have other rats at home already.
  3. If you are unable to continue to care for you rat at any time, for any reason, please contact me. I will take the rat back to rehome.
  4. The adoption fee for my rescues is $10 per rat.
  5. You will be required to sign an adoption contract, agreeing to my terms and policies to adopt a rat from me.
