|Rescue Me ID: 15-11-01-00488Rat (female)|
Meet Roxanne. She is a 17 month UNSPAYED champagne rat with ruby eyes. I have had her and her sister since they were 6 weeks old. I recently had to have her sister put to sleep due to a tumor, leaving Roxy all by herself. I just started grad school and it would be unwise of me to adopt more rats right now, but Roxy doesnt deserve to have to live alone. It breaks my heart to have to rehome her but it's the best thing I can do right now. She is very sweet and a little shy. She doesn't mind being pet or held but prefers the comfort of her cage. I will not surrender her to a shelter and my situation is not urgent. If I can't find her a good home I will keep her and she'll be happy enough, but I would much rather her have some new rattie friends. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting Rodents & Small Mammal in Maryland|
Rodents & Small Mammals can make good pets in Maryland if they match your IifestyIe. Rodents are small mammals with four sharp teeth they use to eat, gnaw wood, and defend themselves. Several types of rodents are popular pets, such as chinchillas, hamsters, gerbils, and guinea pigs. Even rats are kept as pets! Rodents are often purchased as gifts for children. Sadly, however, many owners of rodent pets do not know how to care for them properly, and young children are often unprepared for the responsibility of having a pet. Families may not approach the purchase of a rodent with the same level of commitment they would have to a pet dog or cat. Mistakes can be made regarding the genders of a pair of rodents, resulting in a litter of unexpected babies. Some owners of rodents simply turn their pets loose when they get tired of them, which usually leads to the death of the animals, since they are not adapted to life in the wild. Free to good home ads can result in a rodent being used for snake food. There are some rodent rescue operations out there that can receive discarded pets, but these places tend to become overloaded due to so many people getting rid of their rodents. Please approach all decisions to get a pet with a long-term commitment, and pursue adoption rather than buying a rodent from a pet store.
