Little Daphne is as sweet as they come and loves playing with other rats.
This one-year-old white rat was taken to the Arizona Humane Society, along with a few of her rat friends through the organization’s Project Reachout Program. That program allows the Arizona Humane Society to transfer pets from shelters that are overwhelmed when the non-profit has space to adopt them. This gives critters a second chance to find their “fur-ever” home.
Rats make great pets as they are friendly, loyal, intelligent and sociable. Like most small critters, Daphne might be a little shy at first, but over time she would love nothing more than to receive affection from her new family. You can earn Daphne’s trust by bringing her yogurt pretzels and bell peppers, her favorite snacks. Her favorite activities include snuggling with her rat friends, asking for treats and finding the ideal hidey-hole in which to take a nap. Because Daphne is very sociable, it would be great if she has other rat roommates. The Arizona Humane Society often has other rats that are available for adoption that would be perfect companions for this cute girl. She also should go home with someone who has done their rat care research and since she is small, all children in the home need to be at least 10 years old.
Her animal number is 656190. While the Arizona Humane Society’s Adoption locations are temporarily closed, you can find pets to adopt through the organization’s Virtual Adoption Matchmaking Program by appointment. To learn more, visit azhumane.org/adopt.
While Daphne might have been adopted by the time you have your Virtual Matchmaking Adoption by Appointment, there are dozens of other wonderful pets that also need loving homes. Visit the website to see which animals are available to adopt today.
