Mainely Rat Rescue turns 10 year old this August. TO help us celebrate, The Travelin' Rat is featuring MRR as its Rescue of the Month for August.
Mainely Rat Rescue (a 501(c)3 organization) was founded in August of 2007 by four women who had worked and volunteered in shelters for many years, and saw a need to rescue and re-home unwanted domestic pet rats, a misunderstood, and often overlooked species in many shelters.
MRR’s mission is to rehabilitate and find homes for surrendered or abandoned domestic rats, as well as spreading awareness, education and support for all the animals in their care. In addition we strive to educate the public about what wonderful animals domestic pet rats are, as well as one day hoping to have the resources available to rehome other small animals in need. Our foster homes are located across New England (ME, MA., NH, CT, VT, RI).
