Rosalie's Info...

I am in need of an experienced adopter.

Rosalie's Story...
Rose is a solid grey, female rat. She is a rex which means her fur is long, curly and extra plush. She is very soft. We don't know how old Rose is, but we estimate her to be about 2 years old. Rose was abandoned by a breeder who no longer wanted to keep her, along with four males.

Rose is sweet and beautiful. She is friendly and outgoing with people, though she likes to hide in her nest if there's too much noise and confusion.

Unfortunately Rosalie can sometimes get overexcited by fingers that smell like food and she will bite. She is currently in training to reduce this behaviour but she needs to go to an adult home who can continue to work with her on this. Rose would do best with a female rat as a cagemate. She is dominant so would do best with a submissive friend.


Rosalie is healthy and active and would make a great addition to a rat-loving household!

If you're interested in adding Rosalie to your family please fill out our small animal adoption form. You can email grandriverrescue@hotmail.com for more information. The adoption fee for Rose is $7.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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