Dancer's Info...

I am a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, not good with kids, and not good with small animals.

Dancer's Story...
Dancer is a 5 month old black hoodie, named for her hyperactive behavior and pronounced head bob. Dancer was put on medication when she arrived in hopes that her condition was something treatable like an inner ear infection, but the medication had no effect and the conclusion is that Dancer has a permanent neurological issue that, according to her former owner, began at approximately 8 weeks of age. There is a possibility that Dancer is a stargazer rat, with a condition similar to Tourette's Syndrome in humans.

Head bob aside, she is a bright-eyed, busy, curious girl. She does have a habit of nipping, and I sometimes wonder if it's not an attempt to "catch" things as her bobbing head goes by, or to still herself. She is able to to eat and drink normally.

Dancer is bonded with her cage mate Dani, who is not special needs. They must be adopted together.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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