Before You Begin
We are seeking the best match for our animals. As such, we consider all applications for a particular animal and do not operate on a first-come-first-serve basis. The decision to adopt is an important one which we take very seriously. We approve adopters who have excellent veterinary history which includes annual wellness exams and preventive care for their pets, as well as immediate medical attention for illness or injury.
Helping PAWS Pet Rescue recently admitted 10 female fancy rats! Did you know that pet rats are clean, super smart, affectionate, and make wonderful companions?
