Raleigh Rodent Rescue

Need help with an animal?

We will do our very best to help, but remember, we have limited resources, little money, and an all-volunteer staff, so if we don’t get back to you immediately, its not because we don’t care! We do our very best for the animals and will do our best to get back to you asap!
Please fill out the form below as completely as you can. If possible, include photos as .jpgs. Photos will significantly increase your chances of finding a home in a timely manner.
Important note: When placing an animal, most potential adopters will contact you via email. You must shut off or adjust your anti-spam programs otherwise adopters’ emails will likely not get through to you. If you do not respond to inquiries (not that you have to adopt to anyone you do not feel comfortable with, but please at least respond) with an email in a timely fashion, you will be dropped from the list of persons with animals in need and referrals will no longer be made to you. It is not that we want to be harsh, but it is very disappointing to an excited adopter to be ignored or thrown in your spam bin.
Also, we do ask for a donation from you at the time of adoption of your animal. It does not have to be big, and can be in-kind (cages, food, etc.) Reviewing applications and making referrals is a lot of work and your donation helps keep our foster program going. Our adoption contract we require from our adopters also protects your animal and includes a first right of refusal clause.
Thanks for choosing rescue for your animal/the animal you’ve taken in!

Be ready to answer our questions:

Where was the animal obtained?
What kind of home do you think would be ideal for this animal?
Are you in need of foster care for this animal? (We are usually full, but you might get lucky. We can put you on the waiting list if we have no room. Please, only use this option if you absolutely cannot care for the animal until adoption. That space may mean life or death for another animal, however if your need is genuine we do want to help.)
What is your current set-up for this animal (cage, food, etc)
Why does this animal need a new home?
