Somebody Out There is Looking for Love
Rat Terrier Rescue Canada Inc. is a charitable non-profit, volunteer organization that rescues and fosters Rat Terriers in private homes. We are dedicated to the welfare of Rat Terriers, it is our purpose to find new, permanent and loving homes for Rat Terriers that have been abused, neglected or abandoned.
Rat Terriers are a small, active and likeable breed that is growing in popularity Canada. Our rescued Rat Terriers are originally from puppy mills, pounds, shelters, or unwanted owner surrenders. They are placed in foster homes for assessment, for vetting and to get them ready for their adoptive families.
All Rat Terriers coming into rescue are spay/neutered, vaccinated and tested for heartworm. As a non-profit organization, Rat Terrier Rescue Canada operates solely by donations and fundraising and all funds are used only for the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of Rat Terriers in need.
Did you know that a Rattie aged 10 still has several years of love to give? Rat Terriers have a lifespan of 15-20 years! Our adoption fee for dogs 10 and older is $300.
• Older animals will often bond with you more easily, and acclimate more quickly to a new environment than younger pets.
• Many older pets have been house-trained. They know that the out-of-doors is where you pee and poop.
• A mature pet is done developing their personality, and offers you a stable temperament.
• Older pets are generally less rambunctious and destructive, but they still have energy to play and take walks with you.
• Older pets usually already know the basics and require little in the way of obedience training.
• Mature animals make wonderful companions for just about anyone, from families in households ranging from quiet to very active.
• Older pets are truly appreciative of your love and will shower you with affection for the rest of their lives!
With so many reasons to give a mature dog a loving home, how can you not choose one of our adorable older dogs?
