Wendell

Location: foster

If ever there was a tragic tale (pun intended) to tell then it is the story of little Wendell. We estimate this sociable little chap to be around 1 year of age. He has been thoroughly examined by a exotic vet specialist and has the all clear for rehoming. We hope he won't have to wait too long to find new friends as he is such a loving little guy who is missing his best friend.


Wendell was cruelly abandoned in a local country park along with his ratty friend. Thankfully members of the public alerted the National RSPCA to their plight and managed to trap them for us in a dustbin! We don't think they had been fending for themselves for long but it soon became very clear why someone had done an unthinkable thing. Wendell's best friend had a large, inoperable tumour and so tragically he found himself both homeless and bereaved in short space of time.


Wendell is doing really well and has proven to be an attentive chap who enjoys human interaction and coming out for a play. He would ideally love a new friend or more to spend his days with and can live with a family. Wendell will need a cage that is a minimum of 70 x 48 x 78cm which is suitable for up to 2 rats only. The more rats the bigger cage size required.

Washington & Irving

Location: foster

This handsome pair of boys have come on transfer to us from the RSPCA Doncaster branch because after 3 months of waiting for a forever home no-one had come forward so they thought they'd try their luck with the good folks of Greater Manchester. The boys are around about 1 year old and originally came into RSPCA care because their owner was too ill to look after them any more.


Washington and Irving are a gentle and sensitive pair of boys. Half the time you don't even know they are there but typically, like most rats, are most active on an evening time. But of course because we have gone home at teatime we don't get to see them at their most active so don't know then as well as we'd like but we can definitely see they have had a good play when we come in each morning.


The boys are really good at eating fresh fruit and veg and enjoy a quality, dry rat food. It would be lovely for them to be rehomed to a patient new home with adults only. They have clearly not been used to being handled and reveal their timid sides when picked up but once you have them they will tolerate it. These boys really need to be in the hands of a confident and sensitive owner and to be allowed to blossom in their own time. They really are lovely boys and we really want to see them in a forever home.
The boys will need a cage that is a minimum of 70 x 48 x 78cm which is suitable for up to 2 rats only.

If you would like to adopt the boys contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lynn

Location: foster

Lynn is the best rat in the world. Fact. She may look like an ordinary kinda rat but she is super rat! Lynn came into our care along with another animal after her owner was no longer able to care for them. From the moment we first met Lynn we became best friends. She is genuinely the best rat we have ever had in our care and we are desperate to see her in the hands of a genuine rat lover and to make new ratty friends.


Lynn loves being out and about with you and is always craving attention. We suspect she would live quite happily free-roaming if you choose, as she is so keen on human company. Ultimately we would like to see Lynn gain a ratty friend or two and being such a sweet natured girl we'd hope this would be a relatively easy process.


Lynn is on a diet of good quality dry food and fresh fruit and veg. Her favourite fresh food so far has proven to be sweetcorn. She also enjoys gathering up torn strips of kitchen roll hung from the bars of her cage and making a nest. 


The love we have for Lynn is enormous so we are looking for a home that will value her as much as we do. Lynn would be happy to live alongside children of all ages and will need a cage that is a minimum of 70 x 48 x 78cm which is suitable for up to 2 rats only. The more rats the bigger cage size required.

If you would like to adopt Lynn contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.
