Hi, I'm Ellie!
I'm an adult female gray Rat.
I'm an adorable domestic rat who is very friendly and curious. My sister and I came from another shelter, where 40 rats were housed for months awaiting the end of our owner's court case. I'm learning to enjoy being handled, and a gentle adopter will help me learn to love it even more! Rats are clean, affectionate, and super intelligent - we're so smart that you can easily teach us to do tricks! We're also extremely social animals who don't do well living alone, so we must be adopted in pairs or trios (or fours, or fives. . .). :D I'm looking for an adopter who has some rat experience and will give me the time, attention, and love that we ratties require. Being constantly confined to a cage is NOT a good life for a rat and we need to spend quality time with our people every single day!
If you are interested in adopting me, the first step is to submit an adoption application. You can download an application from the links below, attach the completed application to an email, and send it to the Humane Society of Jefferson County at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the application is received, the approval process will take approximately 1-3 business days and you will be contacted as soon as it is completed. Please contact the shelter at 920-674-2048 with any questions.
