The raffle will last from tonight through August 31st and the winners will be announced on September 1st.
All the prizes are in order, meaning... they have either been donated already or we have them in our possession. Not one cent of this fundraising money will go towards the prizes! For those of you who visit the RMRR website frequently and for those of you who are part of msn's Loving Rats, you are aware of the amount of ratties we take in and how much we incur in supplies and medical expenses for our Muffins. We will get them the medical attention they need regardless of the expense, even if it means us personally having to go without. Most of the ratties listed on the website are in our personal care and some are in fosters (which we provide everything for). Also, not all of our ratties are listed on the website because they are either under medical care or have behavioral problems and cannot be adopted out at this time. We still have some ratties in need of tumor removal surgery and took in the lab rats from LaGuardia Community College. The surrender before that were 8 females (without our knowledge all were pregnant and gave birth in the same week, ending in a total of 107 ratlets). Fundraising and donations are a consequential part of animal rescue because unlike other non-profits there is no annual income from the government. When you dedicate your life to saving animals you are basically on your own. However, more important than raffles and prizes are adoptions! Our main goal has always been to find our rats the BEST of homes.
RatOpia is an RMRR event! It is a free two day event and a chance for rat lovers to get together, share advice and stories, and have fun. This is a fundraising, adoption, and social event to started by RMRR. There will be rat adoptions as well as a rat photo contest, pony rides (at the New Jersey location), a BBQ, poetry reading, educational seminars, kids crafts, food, raffles, prizes, and merchandise for both you and your ratties! Everyone is welcome to attend. RatOpia will be held in Endwell, NY on August 27th and in Howell, NJ on August 28th. RSVP by August 21st. The exact locations will be listed on the RatOpia website which will be up by the end of next week, if not sooner. So if you don't RSVP in time you can still come.
