When asked about the rats in their upkeep, Rachel had a lot to say ๐Ÿ˜› TAGEND

“We predominantly care for domestic rats, but we also have domestic mice, some hybrid wildernes mice and hand-reared wild R. rattus since any pest rodent species raise the issue of humans can’t be re-released. Most are at the prime salvage website, but we have a foster team who takes rats out to help with medication and trust training. Numerous aren’t fit to be rehomed due to health or temperament editions, and much of that comes from poor backyard rearing. Those rats live here for the rest of their days in families of 10 or so, we’re a ‘no kill’ shelter that merely euthanizes for quality of life issues or endangerment. We have everything from mums on offsprings to grumpy old males who are required to regular help with grooming, we’ve got rats with disabilities both physical and cognitive, and so many spectacular things just waiting for a home. They’re incredible souls , nothing like what parties ‘expect’ a rat to be. I call them my little “sewer puppies” because they really are so much like pups, except cleaner! They’re inquisitive, loyal, and get so excited only to lick your hand or sniff your face.”

Besides, I’ve never been much for social media and at the very beginning we didn’t have parties like #AdminAlly, so I needed a direction to share these little guys without my customary wordy uprights, ” the representative explained how the social media page was established. And as for the rat of the week? ” I visualized a photoset from a zoo that had done the same thing with their penguins and it was such a good are suitable for a regular portion, to realize people laugh and show them how unique and humorous rats can be! “
