    Due to personal reasons I find myself needing to rehome all of my animals. 10 of my rats and my multis already have homes with various family members and will be coming back to me when this has blown over, however I have 6 rats and a hamster who need to be rehomed.permenantly.

    The hammy is a male syrian, very pretty boy and really friendly.loves his cuddles, exploring and being handled.

    The 4 old girl rats are very sweet and friendly, however they are >2years old so I cannot guarantee how long they would be with you. 4 of the 8 i originally got have died so I honeslty cannot say how long these ladies would survive.

    I have 2 male husky dumbos to rehome also (They are NOT housed together). One is 8 months and one is about a year and a half. Both sweet friendly boys with cracking personalities.

    I'm afraid I cannot provide cages with them as many of my cages are borrowed or will be going with the other rats.

    I am really upset about having to do this, however my own lack of foresight has forced me to. I want them to go to forever homes, not to people who want to breed them/use them for reptile food.

    All of these are free to good homes.

    Can anyone help?

    Peace

    [EDIT] Aaaaaand I've posted in entirely the wrong section >_<

    I would have to work on my oh but I might be able to take the hamster, what sort of timescale are you talking about? would you be able to deliver him cos I don't do motorways? Oops just realised where you live, its miles away.

    Timescale is 2 weeks at the absolute maximum. Afterthat I'll probably have to take the old girls to be PTS if no-one wants them as my only other option is to sell them as snake food, And no to that idea.

    omg im sooooo sorry to hear this, hope everything is ok.

    if we had our garage sorted out which is the plan for the near future then i prob could have taken something (whether hammie or rats) but sadly just aint got the room for the moment.

    i hope you find some good homes hun
    cant you find a boarding place for them ???

    A friend has taken boyrat, ULLAH is taking Hammy and possibly fatrat so I need to find homes for the 4 girls. I doubt a boarding place will take them as they are so old plus I have no idea how long they'd have to keep them. I'd rather they went to a lobing home to live out their days tbh.

    Peace

    Parents and brother are taking 20 of my rats and my multis... Boyfriend is also not allowed pets but 3 girls is a lot easier to hide than 7 girls and 2 boys :(

    If no-one has rehomed them in 3 weeks, Sassysas has directed me to somewhere I can take them :)

    Peace

    so what is the real reason you are getting rid? cuz if i was in your shoes and they were mine then i would not get rid of them as being rats they dont live long as it is and its a bit crule to pass the old ones on as the stress of the move could proble top them off .

    it realy pisses me when people have pets then have to give them up.they should think about this before getting them.!!!!!!!!!

    i think that is abit harsh if im honest. Red doesn't have to state the reason as it may be personal. She does alot for the animals she has and it would have to be really serious for her to have to rehome them

    The real reason is that my landlord, who said it was fine for me to keep pets at the beginning of my tenancy, has changed his mind and if I don't get rid of them I will be homeless in 2 weeks.

    Everyone on here knows how much I love my animals and how hard this is for me, so please keep your nose out of my personal business unless you are offering to help. You do not know anything about me or my animals.

    Peace
