The Sanitation Boys

These boys came to us on 2/18/19 after some local sanitation workers found them in a bag of trash! Luckily the kindhearted men knew the right thing to do and reached out to us to make sure they got cleaned up and into forever homes. The boys are healed up, healthy, and ready for their forever homes.

They were neutered on 4/24/19 and will be safe to live with ladies beginning 5/15. Since they were neutered in NYC their adoption fees are $125 each.

Fostered by Jared in Long Island City, NY.

UPDATE 3/4/19:

“I wanted to give you an update on the Sanitation Boys. They are all improving each day. They are eating well and are drinking from the water bottle. During play time they are much more comfortable with coming over by us and seeing what we are doing. They are also playing more with each other during play time and in the cage. They do not really climb in their cage but they have the ability to do so if the mood strikes them.

They do sleep a lot and sometimes will try to go back to sleep after 15 or so minutes of play time. I am sure this is a factor of them being young and not coming to us very strong”

UPDATE 5/25/19:

Bobby is easy going and gets along well with all his brothers.

Eddie is outgoing and is interested in what the humans and rats around him are doing. During free time he often comes near humans to see what they are up to and see if he can be a part of it. He often starts the playtime with his brothers by initiating the contact.

Hardy has a shy personality with humans but is cuddly with other rats. He is often at the bottom of the sleeping pile and plays well with his brothers.

Pete has an adventurous personality and likes to range and explore new areas. He is a skilled climber and has gotten onto high places that were unexpected.

All of the boys like to sleep in tunnels, hammocks, huts and boxes. They can be initially hesitant to come out for play time but enjoy it once they are out. They tend to hang out in pairs of Eddie with Bobby, and Pete with Hardy.”
