Please Help Locate Missing Rats

This is an odd post, but we really need help from the San Diego
herp community. On Friday, June 15th, someone 'adopted' 21 rats
from a San Diego animal shelter (details on private request).
The original owner of the animals was tragically killed in a head-on
car collision, leaving 40 pet rats behind. 19 of the rats were
already adopted out from the shelter; however, before the remaining
21 could be re-homed, they disappeared. We are extremely concerned
they will be used for snake food or as feeder breeders.

These rats are *not* feeders. They are expensive fancy rats who
were beloved pets - and they deserve better. The only reason the
rats were even at the shelter is because every other rescue in
town is completely full - and we were assured no harm would come
to the animals.

All we know is that the 'adopter' was male, lives in the San
Diego area, and may be an animal control officer. Please, if you
have *any* information on these rats, even if they have been killed,
let me know. One of the males is beige with one eye, and we do
have photos of the others if that will help with identification.

Thank you,

Lydia
