Welcome to Josephine's Rattery & Small Pet Rescue

About Us

How We're Helping

goeWe are a South Florida nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about the misunderstood companion pet rat. We also provide shelter to surrendered small pets. To date we've helped chinchillas, mice, hamsters, Norway rats, gerbils, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, bunnies, ferrets, and sugar gliders. While gerbils, hamsters, mice, and companion rats stay with us, we serve as a safe way station for the others; working with specialized rescues throughout Florida.

Get Involved

Are you interested about what we're doing? We are always looking for volunteers to help us change minds, make crafts, and keep these loving pets clean and healthy. For those in need of community hours, we qualify and are excited to have you join us!

Thank You

Whether you help through monetary donations, supplies, volunteering your time, or telling people we exist, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
