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 and checking out our Ontario rat adoption centre/rescue! Our adoptable rodents have so much love to share and make the BEST companions! Rodents are 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 rat(s) 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 or issues at all, let us know!
We have done rat adoptions in Toronto Mississauga, Hamilton, Burlington, Ottawa, 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.
We are really hoping to find them the perfect home as they deserve a family who understands their needs and will give them the patience they need to show you their amazing personalities!
Amelia is hoping to get adopted solo and is ready to leave her daughters and find a new rat crew!
Gigi and Paris would like to get adopted as a pair :)
Tulip, Willow, Quinnevere are a bonded trio. Willow and Quinn born Summer 2022. Tulip is approx 8-9 mo old. These girls are a bit shy but sweet and warm up quickly. They don’t love being picked up but do love crawling on you and being fed snacks in the play pen! Quinn and Willow are quite the escape artists, so their future home must be rat proof! They can escape our playpen, so need to be supervised whenever they are free roaming in there! Other than that, they are super cute and fun! :)
Dashi, Daffodil and Summer have been added to this group of 3 and they are all getting along great together. They can also be a bit shy but around the right people who understand their needs, they can be very friendly. They just need a bit of time to come out of their shells and get to know their owners.
Meadow, Elm and Ivy are looking for an experienced rat home with a family who is very patient to their special needs. They are so deserving of a great home and someone who can give them lots of time and attention!
These girls are about a year old and were found in someone's backyard where we believe a domestic and wild rat had bred. This left these girls too domesticated to live in the wild but also very skittish as you would expect to see with a wild rat. They have come a long way in the past year and enjoy coming out for free roam time. We are able to sit in the play pen with them and a towel over our laps and they will come and crawl under it and all over our legs. They do get a bit spooked with sudden movements and aren't able to be picked up so to transport them we use tunnels. They LOVE tunnels! And they LOVE their dig boxes where they make mazes for themselves to sleep in during the day.
This group of 7 girls was recently surrendered to us from someone who was moving away to university and sadly couldn't take these amazing girls with her. This group of girls is hands down the FRIENDLIEST group we have ever had! They have been extremely well socialized, come running to the cage doors to get some human attention and will cuddle for days! The absolute perfect rats!
