Please be aware that we are an all volunteer run non profit group. Unfortunately, most of us of us have jobs and lives away from the rescue which makes it extremely difficult to respond immediately. Please know that we will get back to you within about 48 hours at the most. If you do not hear back from someone within 48 hours, please try contact us again. If you are interested in adopting, the first thing we will ask you to do, is fill out an application. So, to speed up the process, your best bet will always be to send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the application filled out and attached. We can then respond with the best time for you to come for a visit and pick out your new best friend!
We are a home based all volunteer Non-Profit Rodent Rescue located in the Silver Lake/Everett, WA area. We have submitted our Form 1023 to become an official 501 (C)(3)* rescue. Founded by Joanne Gemmer when she saw the extreme need for a small animal/pet rat rescue. Rats have taken over our hearts and our home. We have been rescuing rats and other rodents in need and finding them their new forever homes since May of 2010. Quite simply put, we love rats and have found that with the growing number of people discovering the joys of pet rat ownership, there is also a growing number of domesticated rats finding themselves homeless and in need of new forever homes. We would like to help the world see what truly terrific pets and friends rats make. If you already know what wonderful friends pet rats make, we are here for you too! We do also on occasion take in and have available for adoption other small animals such as mice, hamsters, guinea pigs and rabbits, etc.

Please use the contact form to arrange a time to come check out all our available animals and let your next best friend choose you.

*Please note that the Rescue is currently in the process of applying for, but has not yet received, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service. While we hope that the Rescue will be granted tax-exempt status, we cannot guarantee approval of the application. In the event that we are not granted tax exempt status for any reason, donations made during the pendency of the application process will not be tax deductible.
