rats in kill shelter (Central Pennsylvania ) *update 2/19*
« on: February 18, 2004, 07:43:38 PM »
Hi :) I stopped by the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society today (it was closed) but i saw some young rats up for adoption. The rats were black hooded and PEW's. I saw one male, i don't know if they are all male or mixed. From their size i'm thinking about 2 monts old. I'm going to go tomorrow and get the CPHS phone number, and get more information on the rats and drop off some lab blocks. I'll edit this tomorrow but if anyone thinks they can help that would be great. Please cross post and lets see if we can help these little ones :)

*update*
All the rats are male. They are ~2 months old. They are being fed a lab pellet (for pregnant and lactating females = high protein).
The adoption fee is 5.00. The don't accept donations for the care of the rats but money can be donated to pay for the adoption fee, so that they are free to adopters. If you wish to pay the adoption fee or to adopt  please contact the CPHS. The phone number is *814-942-5402*

I live far away and I couldn't take in new rats anyway.  But I was wondering...is there any way we can donate to sponser their care while they're there?  Not sure how this works.

(Got a soft spot for the more "common" looking ratties.)

I live in mechanicsburg & am looking to adopt some boys.  Is it the humane society here in mechanicsburg?  If not, which one is it & do you know their hours.

It is the humane society in altoona. They are closed wednesdays and open ~11 to 4 the rest of the week but are open later on fridays. I'll check and get the proper hours. The girls went really fast so you might want to call them and see what's left etc. :)
