PLEASE NOTE: Our rats can be adopted ALL OVER ONTARIO! We have wonderful volunteers and can arrange rides to almost anywhere so don't let the location stop you from inquiring about some ratties!
Thank you for your interest! Our rats have so much love to share and make the BEST companions! Super smart, social, and make very deep bonds with their people, the most "human-like" of any companion animal we've ever had.
If you've decided you want to adopt a small pet rat, please fill out the adoption application form below. The questions we ask are to determine the following so please be as honest and open as you can
We hope your connection with Frankie's World and your rescue rodents will be a lasting one, and we are here to support you through the transition as well as ANY TIME in the future. We also LOVE getting updates on rats in their forever homes! SERIOUSLY, if you have any questions, want any rat care tips or experience issues at all, let us know!
We have done rat adoptions in Mississauga, Toronto, Hamilton, Burlington, Kitchener and other cities in the GTA. We also have connections with other Ontario rat adoption centres and can link you up with amazing rat shelters in Ontario if our rats aren't suited to you for whatever reason.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, if for whatever reason you are no longer able to properly care for your rat(s), or you believe that your home is no longer a good fit for them, we ask that you PLEASE BRING YOUR RAT(S) BACK TO US! Please do not give away, sell, or re-home them on your own. There is absolutely no judgement, we understand that circumstances can change, and are happy to take them back into our care if need be, whether that be temporarily or permanently.
These boys have come a long way since being at the rescue! They are now very easy to handle and enjoy their free roam time. Feed them all the snacks and they'll love you forever! They are very gentle and easy going never even niping at treats! They would need a few days to settle into a new home but once they know they're not going anywhere, they will become cuddle bugs :)
These bonded brothers are extremely sweet and love to eat food from your hands without nipping! We are still working at handling them as they can be a bit skittish but they are warming up to us more and more every day. They would love someone who can be patient with them being handled and understand that sometimes they want to spend time with you, crawl on you but not be held. The more time spent with them, the more they allow us to hold them.
