Benny and Misha - Indianapolis, IN

How beautiful are these ferrets??  Meet Benny and Misha. 

Benny and Misha are a pair of altered, senior male/female ferrets who are considered special needs. They are approximately 5 years old and have been in rescue for a year. Benny is seemingly healthy but older (maybe closer to 6). Misha is slightly younger but has a history of adrenal disease. It is well controlled with a hormone implant, but there is no way to predict how it will progress as she ages. They are very sweet, cuddly ferrets and tightly bonded.

Leo - Indianapolis, IN

Leo is approximately 2 years old and has been in rescue most of his life. He is super sweet and loveable. He has mild dental disease, and his adoption is considered special needs. He has only needed one dental treatment so far, but there is no way to predict how that may progress as he ages. He may get along with other rabbits, but his dental progress and eating habits will be easier to track if he is a single rabbit.

Sandy - Ankeny, IA

Look at adorable Sandy!  This sweet girl spent the first 7 years of her life in a cage barely big enough for her to comfortably lay down in, much less hop about. She was a child's pet, and that child grew up and went to college, leaving sweet Sandy behind. We ended up using her cage as a travel crate, and she now gets full roam of her foster home.

This sweet Harlequin lady is 7 years young and looking for the perfect family to spoil her as she enters her golden years. Having been kept in a small cage most of her life, she is just now learning about life as a pampered house rabbit, but as you can see from the pictures she is loving it! Her favorite activities include snuggling on the couch and lounging in comfy places. She has excellent litter habits and may do well as a free roaming rabbit with adequate bunny proofing. Sandy is incredibly sweet and would likely do well with calmer children of all ages. Although we don't know how she responds to dogs, she has done well with rabbit-savvy cats. If you would like to meet this lovely lady, please let us know!  Please visit https://www.iowarabbitrescue.org/ for more information!!

Mahogany - St. Paul, MN

Meet Mahogany!  He is a 1 yr old, 1 lb, male rat.

Mahogany is a beautiful rat! He is inquisitive, friendly toward humans, kind of lazy, cuddly, and is funny with his little mouth, he will put mouth on you but does not bite down, usually thinking your fingers are food!  His favorite treats are Cheerios and fruit.  His favorite activities are napping and floor time.

Mahogany doesn't have much of a strict routine. He gets fed when he needs more food. Gets floor time generally in the evening. He has never been exposed to another animal.  Bonding may be attempted with another rat in his adoptive home as long as it doesn't stress him out.  He doesn't really need a buddy as he really enjoys humans and would do great with a person who wants to spend time with him!

Mahogany is currently hospice due to a mass found in his lungs. He can occasionally get nosebleeds and he’s breathing is raspy and more labored than a normal rat.  That said,  Mahogany’s tumor hasn’t slowed him down! He is still very friendly and inquisitive and always runs up to the cage door to say hi. He will make a great cuddle buddy for anyone willing to give him some TLC in his last bit of life.  

 

 

Mahogany’s foster parent prefers to meet at the Roseville PetSmart - 2480 Fairview Ave N, Roseville, MN 55113 or Blaine PetSmart - 10451 Baltimore St NE, Blaine, MN 55449 for meet & greets, & adoptions. Our adoption process and fees can be found on our website here: http://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org We absolutely DO NOT SHIP ANIMALS! Please do not ask. All rats within MNPPR have tested negative for the Seoul virus before being placed up for adoption. We have no limitations on where animals can be adopted but the adopter must come to meet and pick up.

Questions can be sent to our Adoption Coordinator Kristen - Kristenb@mnpocketpetrescue.org.
