About Us


How We're Helping

We 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.

June 2019 UPDATE: We can no longer accept guinea pigs and bunnies. Please contact East Coast Rabbit Rescue or Wild Cargo for assistance.

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.
