Who we are
We are an official 501 (C) (3) home & foster based Non-Profit Rat Rescue & Shelter located in South Everett, WA. Rats have taken over our hearts and our homes. Since May 2010 Best Friend Rodent Rescue has been rescuing ratties in need and finding them their new forever homes. Quite simply put, we love rats and have found that with the growing number of people discovering the joys of rattie ownership, there is also a growing number of ratties finding themselves homeless and in need of new forever homes. We would like to help the world see what truly terrific pets and friends rats make. If you already know what wonderful friends pets rats make, we are here for you too!
Best Friend Rodent Rescue is a no kill, 501 (C) (3) non-profit animal shelter and rescue dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for neglected and abandoned small animals, primarily domestic rats, from other shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes and local veterinarians, we are able to rescue hundreds of small animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. We also serve as a resource to our community and all domesticated rat owners by providing education, information on responsible pet ownership including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition for this often misunderstood and underappreciated animal.
