Plato's Story...
Age: 1year

Litter trained: No

Favorite exercise activity: Floor time.

Favorite toys: Houses

Favorite games/other activities: Running on the couch and Floor time.

Favorite treats: Fruits.

Companion animal required: Not recommended due to aggression.

Other animals this pet has been exposed to: Rats, took an aggressive stance to his brother, and separated.

Other info for prospective adopter: Takes a little to warm up to you, And needs someone who can finish his training.

Plato is a great ‘guy’ who just needs an owner to understand him and appreciate the fact he needs to time to warm up. He doesn’t like when you stick you fingers in the bar, so prefers to take treats through the door. Usually during our trust-sessions, I sit on the floor and let him take his time to climb on me and explore.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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