The sanctuary maintains a persistent quarantine. The exception to this is after the Come Fall For Rats show the first weekend of November.

This is for the health and safety of the rodent residents.  To read more about quarantine, please visit the Rat Health Guide.  http://ratguide.com/health/basics/quarantine.php.

If you would like to help us maintain this persistent quarantine by becoming a short term foster (3 weeks minimum), please contact us at

Please note:  Quarantine is for the illnesses that rodents can pass to other rodents, not human to rodents.  There are zoological illnesses that can pass from rodents to humans in as much as there are from dogs or cats.
