Rats are wonderful pets that can form close bonds with their “people.” They are fun, incredibly intelligent and clean, despite rumors to the contrary. Rats are very social animals and they generally like to live in pairs.

The N.H. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals currently has 17 rats up for adoption ranging from babies to seniors. If you are thinking of adding a terrific small pet to your family, please consider adopting a pair of rats.
