Facts about William (living with Jackson)

  • Species: Rat
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 65281
  • Hair: Unknown

William (white/red eyed pew) and Jackson (black hooded) are a bonded pair of intact boys born at the end of August 2015. They may take a little bit of time to open up, but they are relaxed, love to run around & play & interact with their foster mom. Highly active, they may keep someone up at night if the cage is in their room.

William is ever the adventurer. He loves to explore and get into trouble. He still freaks out if we move too quickly, but he wants to check in on us constantly once he's done checking out that interesting thing over there. If reaching into his cage, he can still be a little mouthy if you woke him up. He doesn't like peanuts, but LOVES sunflower seeds. He's not a fan of being picked up, but he's okay once he's up.

Jackson cuddles in a little bit when you pick him up. He's very chill and he likes to sit on your lap to eat when you give him a treat. He's happy to get scritches and loves to play. He loves peanuts. And sunflower seeds. And just about any treat you give him. He's totally relaxed when you pick him up and cuddle him in.

They both love hammocks and cardboard boxes.

Recommended for someone experienced, but they've just become so sweet and loving. Neither have ever shown any signs of aggression, though William will give a warning. I've never pushed him past that. They're smart and friendly.

Adoption fee: $20 for the pair

About Wee Companions

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission is to rescue guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, and other small exotic mammals from shelters, places of abandonment, and from persons relinquishing their pets. Whenever possible, we offer a safe house to these animals, irrespective of age, temperament, or health status. These animals will receive veterinary care and socialization in the hopes that they will be placed in a "forever" home. Animals given Sanctuary Status will be placed in our Foster Care Network to live out their lives in comfort and with love. We are also focused on educating foster parents, school children and others on the care, feeding and prevention of unwanted litters of these animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

On Saturdays only, from 11am -4pm we have adoptions & supply sales at 3368 Governor Dr., Suite F, San Diego, CA 92122. Please contact us several days prior to the event if you are interested in adopting, so we can bring appropriate animals. We are only able to bring a limited number of animals with us.
Please bring an appropriate animal carrier to the event if you are planning to adopt.

We also do adoptions by appointment only, if Saturdays are not convenient. Please contact us for more information.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Preview an available pet on our Available Animals page, at an adoption event or make arrangements to visit the main foster location to meet our available animals. Email Fenella, with any questions, to talk about the specifics of any animal or to ask for certain animals to be brought to an event.

2. Meet with an adoption volunteer who is trained to help make the best pet match for you and the pet. Each pet up for adoption has received behavioral and health assessments in order to help determine the best home for that pet. Volunteers will help you decide if the animal you are interested in is a good match for your lifestyle and will direct you to any pets that may be appropriate. If you are looking for a companion for an animal that you already have at home, please let us know and bring the animal with you so that we can check them over and begin introductions to make sure we find the best match for your situation.

3. Complete the adoption once you and our adoption volunteers agree that you've found a great match. We prefer that all members of the household (including other pets that will be interacting with the new animal) are present during the adoption process to ensure that the chosen pet is compatible with everyone. If they are unavailable, a "hold" may be placed on the pet for a short period in order for any family or other pets to come in and meet with us and the pet.

4. At the time of adoption, you will be asked to sign a contract stipulating:

1. You will not breed the animal.
2. The animal will receive veterinary care
3. The animal will be treated humanely
4. If you are unable to care for the animal for any reason, it is to be returned to Wee Companions.
The Adoption Contract is a binding legal document, you must be 18 years or older to sign.
Bring a carrier with you to safely transport your new family member home.

Bonded Pair of Rabbits - $75.00

We reserve the right to deny adoption to anyone.
