Rainbow Rat Refuge is always looking for Foster Homes for our rats. As a 100% foster-based rescue, we need to have a place for them to go, before we say "yes" to taking them in. There is an endless number of rats awaiting intake into our care. For this reason, we always accept applications and try to be proactive by having approved Foster Families available and ready for intakes ahead of time.
Foster Families provide loving homes for rescued rats until they find their forever homes. Rats who are less-adoptable may become permanent residents and live out their lives in the comfort of their Foster-Family's company. You are given an immeasurable amount of love, and a full heart in return. We cover all routine and emergency veterinary costs. We can also provide a cage, accessories, and basic care supplies if needed.
Please reach out if you live in the Durham, Northumberland, Kawarthas, or Peterborough areas. You don't need prior experience caring for rats to foster with us. We are here to walk you through it and we can't do this work without our Foster Families' help! We also want to know what you're comfortable with, and have a thorough application that helps us to match rats with their most-suitable Foster Family.
If you're interested, please e-mail us at RainbowRatRefuge@gmail.com for a Foster Application!
