Facts about Steve

  • Species: Rat
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 411054
  • Hair: Unknown
Mario, Dino, Angelo, and Steve came from a hoarding situation, and though they are happy and healthy now, are still getting used to being picked up and handled by humans. At the moment they are more comfortable when picked up in a towel so they can hide under the folds of fabric. Being exposed can sometimes be overwhelming for these little guys, but they're getting braver, especially when treats are involved!

Rats are one of the cleverest and most interesting small pets. They tend to bond quite strongly with their guardians and are often very interactive. Rats love to climb and need a stimulating environment in order to thrive. They are often very treat motivated and can be taught tricks, just like a dog (yes, really!). Most rats do best if they're able to have a friendly same-sex companion, as they love to play and cuddle with each other.

The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia. Through its locations and operations across the province the BC SPCA provides emergency medical care and sheltering for more than 37,000 animals each year. The society also conducts more than 4,600 cruelty investigations and provides a wide range of advocacy and education programs for domestic, farm and wild animals through its Provincial Office.

Our mission, vision and charter is at the heart of all we do to rescue, protect and care for animals. It is also the driving force behind our animal welfare and education programs.

Our Charter:

The BC SPCA Charter is the foundation that guides the work we do:

Whereas:

The world is inhabited by many species sharing a common ecosystem of air, earth, and water. We recognize and value our interconnectedness with all animals.

Therefore:

The BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality of life for the animals of the world we share.

We pledge our energies to inspire and mobilize society to create a world in which all animals, who depend on humans for their well-being, experience, as a minimum, five essential freedoms:

1. Freedom from hunger and thirst

2. Freedom from pain, injury, and disease

3. Freedom from distress

4. Freedom from discomfort

5. Freedom to express behaviours that promote well-being.
