>Rescued Rats need homes!

>Spring has come again, and with it, all the discarded laboratory rats used in pointless psychology experiments at colleges all across the country. Luckily, some professors are willing to surrender these rats to rescue groups instead of killing them by gas or be-heading, but only if we can find enough homes for them! We have just two weeks to find foster or ‘forever’ homes for all of these rats. Please consider opening your home to a pair of these little guys.

Syracuse Animal Rights Organization volunteers will temporarily foster and arrange transport if need be for upstate NY adopters. Please consider a small donation in lieu of an adoption fee to help cover the cost of care and transportation.

Message from The Humane League of Philadelphia:

The Humane League was recently contacted by a local university about 44 laboratory rats who were used in a basic psychology class. After being subjected to pointless experiments and confined their entire lives in individual plastic tubs where they had no contact with others, these rats were slated to be killed – but, if The Humane League can find homes for all of these rats, the university is willing to turn them over to us. Please consider opening your home to a pair(or more of these sweet, friendly, and easy to care for creatures. All are white albino males that get along well with others. Of the 20 million animals experimented on each year in the U.S., only a few hundred are freed to live the rest of their days in peace. Please help us take advantage of this opportunity, please sign up to save a life (or lives) today! If you are interested in adopting, or have questions, please email sally(at) We only have two weeks to find homes for all 44 or they will be killed, so please contact us today and help us spread the word!
