Jasper & Durtles's Story...

ADOPTED 6/11/17. Jasper and Durtles are an adorable pair of sisters. Even though both girls are quite petite we believe they are adults and we estimate they were born in May 2016. Jasper is a bright black-capped cutie and her sister Durtles is a lovely grey hoodie. Both girls have black eyes and standard top ears. The girls have shown absolutely no signs of aggression or inclination to bite, but they are quite shy and skittish. Neither are big fans of being picked up and held, but once they are out for playtime with you they are much better. The girls are easily spooked by loud noises or sudden movements so we feel they would do best with a patient guardian in a quiet child-free home without alot of other pets.

Jasper and Durtles are bonded sisters and must be adopted together. The adoption fee is $20 for the pair. Please contact us at rats@smallangelsrescue.org for more information. Make sure to include your name and phone number in your email. We respond to all inquiries. If you do not receive a response within 48 hours, please assume there was a problem with your message and kindly contact us again. Thank you for considering adoption, rather than supporting the commercial sale of animals.

Check out www.martinscages.com for great rat habitats. Martins ships quickly from PA. We recommend the Rat Lodge (R-680) or Rat Retreat (R-685).....or larger. For your convenience, Small Angels Rescue has Rat Lodge (R-680) powder coated cages in stock and available for purchase at cost. Any habitat should provide a minimum of two and one-half cubic feet of space per rat. Please check with us before purchasing a cage other than a Martin's cage. Some cages are the correct dimensions but have other problems. We are happy to assist you in choosing an appropriate habitat and can save you time, money and frustration. Remember, there is no such thing as a cage that is too big! Check out The Grotto on the Dapper Rat website for housing inspiration! http://www.dapper.com.au/grotto.htm Unsure how many rats a particular cage will appropriately house? Use the Rat Cage Calculator! Remember to click on 2.5 cubic feet and click on Imperial (inches) before calculating. http://www.rattycorner.com/odds/calc.shtml

The rats of Small Angels would like to remind everyone that cedar bedding and pine bedding are toxic to all animals. Please use Carefresh bedding (first choice) or aspen bedding for your animal friends. Never put your rats in an exercise ball. Exercise balls are dangerous and stressful for all animals. Rodents have poor eyesight. Their vision is even more limited in a cloudy colored ball. They always run into furniture and walls, which they don't see coming. It's like a car crash for them. They back up to try and get away and end up crashing into something else. Its very stressful. In addition, paws can get pinched/broken in the air slits. Animals can easily become over-heated. If they go to the bathroom in the ball, they have to run in their own waste. Furthermore, their great joy in life is exploring and checking things out with their paws and noses. They can't do that in a plastic bubble. Provide a large, safe play area for your rats and skip the ball! For wonderful toy and activity ideas, visit www.dapper.com.au/toys.htm.

We are in need of foster homes for rats – particularly in the Frederick County and Montgomery County areas. Interested in lending a helping paw? We would love to have you join our foster care program! We'll supply the habitat. You supply the love! Fostering is a rewarding way to help deserving animals get a second chance. Please contact us at rats@smallangelsrescue.org for more information. Want to support the rats of Small Angels but not yet ready to adopt or foster? Consider sponsoring some of your favorite furries.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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