BIANCA's Info...

I am a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and not good with kids.

BIANCA's Story...
BIANCA is a young PEW (white rat with pink eyes) who was brought to us in a large trash can after an animal rescuer caught her running loose in her apt bldg after a former tenant moved and abandoned her along with another rat.

She couldn't find the other rat, but brought us BIANCA, who was absolutely terrified and screeching when she arrived. One of our foster moms took her in and has decided to adopt her. Most likely BIANCA was "leftover snake food" that the former tenant released before moving. Her tail is very injured which is how we often find "snake food" rats, probably from mishandling or an attack by the snake.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
