My name is Stephanie Costain and approximately 1 year ago today I have began taking in rescued/surrendered rats. The organization that I have created is called PEI's Rat Haven, a safe home for rejected and surrendered rats. Like other rescues we rely heavily on donations to keep going and keep all rats that come into our care healthy and happy.
I'm calling on all rat and animal lovers on PEI to help me out. I'm able to care for my own mischief but when it comes to adding more rats into my home it can become financially difficult to take on. I've accepted many rats in the last year as well as adopted out just as many to wonderful and amazing homes. I have been thankful that for the most part, the rats that have come and gone through my door have been in relatively good health. Up until now, I have relied on my own income as well as other volunteers that work alongside me.
The rats that needed medical attention have or will be seen!! Phoenix and Cocoa are being treated for their respiratory infections and Tigger will be going for his pre-surgery appointment on March. 18th to be neutered!! Any and all funds raised from here on in will be put towards future fosters who need medical help. :)
I will also be selling items on our Facebook Page - PEI's Rat Haven - to raise money towards this fund!
This group is larger than I ever expected it to be and I am grateful for each and every member. I would never have been able to do it on my own. If you can donate $5 to save a rat, it would mean the world. If you can share this in hopes I can reach our goal, that would be just as great.
I will also accept E-transfers to my personal email: [email protected]
