Well, I didn't get any red flag no nos from anyone about posting this, so here goes:
I pasted the raffle info from Goosemoose here on our forum. The link and info are below. It is for a great rat rescue in Boise, and wow, the raffle items are so fun to buy..a dollar a ticket and you can just click with PayPal and you are done. Lots of neat items donated for the raffle up for grabs. Very cool. I think I have to go back and buy some more.
Breyer, one of the items is a 25 dollar gift certificate for The Crafty Rat website....drool.
It is time!

Here is a bit about The Rat Retreat (which can also be read on the raffles website):
The Rat Retreat, Inc. is a nonprofit rat rescue located in Boise, Idaho. The Rat Retreat was started in 2008 by Dawn Burke who had a deep love of rats. In 2008 TRR also obtained its 501(3)c and has been running as a rescue ever since. Dawn and the volunteers of TRR make sure to give the rats the utmost care they deserve. Whether it be some one on one bonding, group cuddles on the couch or even nursing a sick rat through out the day.
All rats at the rescue are given 24/7 "free" time. Their cages are open to tables full of fun toys and obstacles to keep the rats busy minds, well busy! The Rat Retreat is known for its great socialization of rats and care. When you adopt from The Rat Retreat you are sure to get a lovey healthy rat. Female rats who come in go through a spaying option to minimize health problems and so they can be introed into the existing colonies at TRR, we don't want any rats felt left out as a family!
The Rat Retreat currently has 23 rats in their care. If you are local or willing to drive please think about adopting or even volunteering!
The Rat Retreat also has great community ties giving educated advice at pet stores and helping out local university students achieve their volunteer hours. « Last Edit: Yesterday at 08:42:45 AM by Marybelle » Logged
