Adopt Me

Boise and Sassafrass are a bonded pair of brothers looking for a new home. These two have been through some challenges in the past few weeks, and like so many of us during quarantine are now seeking change for the better. They are social and engaging rats, who seem to have been well handled by their previous guardian. They are very clean, and litter trained! Boise and Sassafrass are currently feeling a bit sick (with an upper respiratory infection) - but not to worry, it's not contagious and they are on the mend.

Our adoption process has changed!
