Colby-Jack's Story...
Colby-Jack is a precious month old Dumbo (nearly hairless also known as Mock Hairless) baby rat who is looking for his new home. This sweet boy is just starting to develop his own precious personality, and is very easy to handle. He is a social guy who does well with other rats, & kids of all ages. He loves dining on special treats, like bread, popcorn, fruits/veggies, & cheese. He enjoys riding on your shoulder, or snuggling up in your hands & when not being held, likes hanging out in a plush hammock. Rats are very social creatures that do best when living in groups, we would love for Colby-Jack to be adopted out with one of his brothers. If you are looking to add a sweet pocket pet to your home, stop by to visit with all our available animals! We are open daily from 12-6!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Colby-Jack, a Benbrook Rat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat for sale in Benbrook, or seeking a Rat from a breeder in Benbrook.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Benbrook already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Benbrook breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rat breeders who help with Rat rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Benbrook paves the way for another one to be saved.
