    Thanks I ended up making a Paypal donation. Good to know for next time though Also which Harkan Teklad blocks are you using, it doesn't say on the website. What is the best site to buy HT to send you guys in case someone is interested here? Also would you take Oxbow Regal?
    Thanks so much! We'll take HT or Oxbow. Honestly, the best thing you can do is either foster, adopt, or just donate. We need bedding and other things, like those listed on the site:

    But if you need more information, it's best to email them directly. I wish I could be more help, but in the words of my father, "I just work here."

    Final update: Over 1,000 rats were saved from Holbrook, NY.

    I didn't stutter. You didn't misread that.

    ONE THOUSAND rats, not including babies in utero.

    I think, just once, I'd love to play with 1000 friendly, well socialized rats at once.... I'm thinking it would be insane fur-ious fun. But 4 rats already have me stretched beyond my limit. No one is getting trained properly as it is.

    That said, pink eyed rats are about as sweet and intelligent as any other rats, but they can have limited eyesight that can get worse in direct sunlight. Which makes some less desirable for certain training purposes.

    You know, funny enough, the PEWs in my litter are the first ones out of the nest to explore. They're fantastic.

    And I'm starting a news article about the rescue efforts. The photos they have are insane.

    I would've considered taking one, but my cage only has room for one more rat. They've got to be adopted in pairs. It wouldn't be fair to crowd them...

    So I'll just wish you luck!

    Just transform your room into a giant rat cage.

    I searched for more info about the Holbrook rescue but couldn't find anything but what is reported by MMR. Weren't the police involved for the eviction or animal services or the media at all? Does anyone know why pet rats were housed in a commercial building? Was the person paying a rent for a commercial building to have hundreds of free ranging pet rats It is obviously a case of animal cruelty, yet nothing was reported to the authorities as there is no investigation or anything in the media.

    I'm in the process of interviewing and typing an article for the media. We're not sure why there isn't more information about this out. When we participated in the Jersey 500, where someone dumped 500 PEW rats in the highway, there was coverage everywhere.

    My guess is this isn't as public as the highway dumping.

    I was about to give more to MMR when I thought I would look for updates and more info. The last update I got is from MRR 17 days ago on their Facebook page.
