Over 100 domesticate pet rats in 4 separate tubs and 2 separate drops were abandoned at the Tacoma Humane Society on 08/18/11 and 08/23/11. The THS was able to find foster homes for 18 boys that were abandoned at the first drop. They just didn't have the space, knowledge or volunteer power to take care of all these incredible little creatures. These are things BFRR has, the only thing we don't have are the funds to emergency spay the 16 older girls that more than likely were mixed with boys longer than they should have been! Can you help us make sure these 81 ratties don't become 300 ratties?

Over 100 Ratties abandoned at the Tacoma Humane Society, 81 of them are safely in the custody of BFRR
What an exciting day here at Best Friend Rodent Rescue! We saw the arrival of 80 rats from California that were rescued on an episode of Hoarders. Thanks to a marvelous job done by North Star Rescue working together with The Humane Society of the United States and United Animal Nations they rescued close to 2000 pet rats at Glen's home in California. We here at Best Friend Rodent Rescue feel honored and privileged to have been able to help in this process. BFRR is one of the only rescues outside of California to take in any of the rescued rats! Transportation was provided for the ratties by Andy's Pet Store and arranged with North Star Rescue. Joining us on the day of arrival were the camera crew and producer of Hoarders, to film the arrival for a follow up episode of Glen’s story.
