There is recently a large rescue done in the South Yorkshire Area from an backyard breeder. Unfortunately this seems its offloading of excess animals and this breeder is going to carry on breeding. Please fully question anyone you get pets from.
There are 71 different animals looking for homes some of them Rats. It’s likely this number will increase due to the fact they been kept together by the backyard breeder. These are currently based in Doncaster.
There is also 36 rats in the Lancaster area again this number may increase due to mix sexes being kept together by the same backyard breeder.
The rescues will need to treat the animals so won’t likely be ready to home for a while but I’m sure they will look forward to any help others can offer or interest in homing them for when they are ready to leave.
