Rattie Ratz Rat Rescue

https://www.facebook.com/rattie....
Rattie Ratz is a federally recognized non-profit (501(c)(3)) rescue organization founded in 1998 and is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption of domestic pet rats in the Bay Area (Northern California).  Rattie Ratz operates a limited-access rescue, accepting needy rats from local, overwhelmed shelters and from individuals and emergency situations on a case-by-case basis.

Since its inception, Rattie Ratz has rescued and re-homed approximately 250-350 domestic pet rats annually.  In 2013, the majority of rats (160 or 48%) were surrendered to Rattie Ratz from individuals, 103 (31%) were pulled from local shelters, 41 (12%) were transfers from other rescue organizations and the remaining rats were either adopted animals that had to be returned to the rescue (12 or 4%) or were babies (15 or 5%) born to rescued, pregnant females (for a total of 331 rats). In 2014, as of June, 171 rats have been adopted and 29 are currently in foster care. Rattie Ratz is an all-volunteer organization with 10-15 regular volunteers and two dozen casual volunteers and foster homes. 

The organization is governed by a volunteer and experienced board of directors which oversees an annual operating budget of approximately $20,000.  Rattie Ratz is supported by individual goodwill donations, adoption donations and fees, special events and other charitable and fundraising opportunities.  Funds are used to purchase supplies, cages, transportation, animal maintenance costs and pay for veterinarian care when required.  Rattie Ratz and its volunteers are active in their local communities, participating in education outreach, locally run adoption drives as well as organizing mobile adoption events.
