In Reply to: Please Help Locate Missing Rats posted by Lydia on June 15, 2002 at 02:15:34:
Good news - we found the ratties. They are ill,
but basically unharmed :) Thank you to everyone
who helped out!
: 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,
