Could you rehome a rodent?

BRISTOL Dogs and Cats Home has been overrun with domestic rats in need of a new home.

The home in Albert Road, St Philip’s, has taken in 20 of the rodents and is caring for them in its new small animal unit.

But they desperately need to find them all a new home.

RSPCA inspectors and animal welfare officers were called to a property in Bristol where the owner could no longer cope, having allowed his few pet rats to breed until the situation was out of control.

Lee Coombs, assistant manager at the home, said: “The rats had been allowed to run free in the property where they had begun breeding under the sofa, in the wardrobe and even in the kitchen units.”

The home, which is part of the RSPCA Bristol Branch, took as many as they were able to manage. Others were then taken to neighbouring animal centres.

Mr Coombs said: “Despite their start in life, all the rats appear to be friendly and well adjusted. They are all different ages and we are able to accommodate anyone looking for a single rat, pairs or even a group of rats.”
