Trying to find a home for a baby rex rat

I'm trying to find a home for a baby female pet Rex Rat (black and white hooded in color). She is about 6-8 weeks old and is in good health. We are located in Central/Northern NJ. Willing to discuss travel/meeting point and drive to deliver this rat baby to her new family.

My boyfriend "saved" her from a pet store feeder tank when he saw she was a cute happy little rex rat, looking nothing like something that should be sold as a feeder. I don't support buying pet rats from pet stores, and I don't plan on ever again in the future, it wasn't right to buy her, but the point is that we have this baby rex rat and I can't bring myself to take her back to the pet store to be sold again for 2 dollars as a feeder. We are going to college in the fall and can't take her with us, so I figured I would try to make the best of the situation now and try to find her a home while she is still a baby.

Is there anyone who can adopt this little baby rat who escaped death? She was in a cage with other rats and playing happily so she should have no problem adapting to fit in with other rats. Please help me find her a loving home!

Please contact me: aria.therat @ yahoo.com (nospaces) Or if you have an account here, contact me on here, thank you so much!

I'm in NJ, but rats just don't have a long enough life span for me. If I hear of anyone looking for one though, I'll direct them to your post. Maybe you could try putting up adds in vet offices or something??

Good luck finding her a home!

I think you are in the wrong place buddy.
You are the weirdest cat I ever seen.
Now matter how big or small wierd or normal we or animals may be we can learn to love and get along and love is what makes it all worth wild. Becuase Beautie is in the eye of the beholder an no one is ugly or more prettyer then anything eals we are all equal. There are some ugly people and things but that is becuase man kind makes them this way do to thier actions.
