An Ethical Dilemma

Here's the short version (long version at "An Unforseen Disaster" thread): a wild rat got in the house and impregnated one of my girls. We now have a litter of 12 half-wild rittens, which I have handled daily from birth:


I've put out an adoption appeal on craigslist, breeders and rescues in my state and rescue forums. But I have no real hope of adopting out all these special needs rats to good homes. At most I can keep 1 or 2, if that.

What do I do with the rats I can't place?

Leah from Goosemoose was talking about taking in 12 half wildies. The story sounded like yours?
