​Meet Brownie!


Our four beautiful baby hammies were born in August, and came to RATS to find their furever families. Hershey, Carapace and Cocoa have all gone off to their new homes now, but they've left behind Brownie, who is still searching.

As he's still very young, Brownie is really quick. He loves zipping around his cage, and playing with his toys.

He'll need lots of attention and regular handling by his new owners. He's fully weaned and living on his own, so he's ready for his new family.

If you can offer Brownie a life of luxury and comfort, please get in touch!

For their comfort and welfare, our small mammals can only be adopted within an hour of their foster homes in Bedfordshire.

We have a number of animals in our care. Most are homeless through no fault of their own and are looking for furever homes and owners who can give them the love and attention they deserve.


Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with our adoption process:


Step 1:     

The animal is admitted into our care, and assessed by our team.

Step 2:     

The animal is examined by a vet, who treats any ailments or injuries.

Step 3:     

The appropriate team leader will liaise with the potential adopter to get to know them and assess whether they are a potential purr-fect match.

Step 4:     

The potential new owners meet the animal, and decide if they want to adopt. New owners may be asked to visit the animal several times before the adoption takes place.

Step 5:     

A pre-adoption home visit will then be made to new owners premises to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is safe and right.

Step 6:     

If the visit goes well, you will be asked to collect the animal and for an adoption donation (amount on request) and to sign an agreement to care for the pet with a commitment to return them to us if they can't continue to do so.
