Hello everyone! my name is Jim, my aim is to create a safe haven for rats that have been abandoned by their owners. Unfortunately they seem to be a pet that people rush into buying before doing enough homework. I myself have lovingly cared for rodents successfully for 5 years now and these beautiful and intelligent creatures still fascinate me to this day. Up until 2009 there was a kind enough couple to be doing the very thing in my area, unfortunately due to lack of funds and high demand they had to stop taking on the rescue rats. Therefore, I go into this with a level head and will ensure I have the time and the funding to manage this effectively. I heard about this site through a friend and really dont know what to expect, I'd like to thank anyone in advance for any contribution big or small.
