50 rats in Contra Costa County (No. Calif.) need placement ASAP - 11/22/14

Cross posting appreciated

The Sergeant from Animal Control (Contra Costa County - San Francisco Bay Area) phoned me today and asked if Animal Care & Adoption Network could help place any of the 50 rats (20 adults and 30 babies/juveniles--ages not yet confirmed) from a situation they are working on.  I told him that ACAN is at capacity but that I would network to see if we could find placement for any of the rats.  He believes that at least some of the rats are used to being handled and are friendly.

If you or anyone you know could take at least a pair (or a single if you have rats to bond him or her with) please email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
