Meet Lego w/ Boromir

Location: Springfield
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year
We are social fellows--please adopt us in pairs or all together!
We have a dramatic story to tell! 300 of us (rats, guinea pigs, gerbils, mice) were found in NY state by the side of the road, huddled together for warmth. A local shelter gathered us up and took us in, then put out a call for help in finding all of us homes. Dakin stepped up and took 27 rats and, you guessed it, now we're hoping adopters will step up too to give us loving, secure homes. Read below to find out why rats make such great pets, then come in to Dakin in Leverett to meet us--hope to see you soon!
Are you looking for a smart, adorable, AND interactive pet!? Well look no further than us! Not convinced? Let me tell you a little bit more about rats like myself. When we are happy, we let out a cheerful sound that is similar to laughter! We love being handled and will happily ride around on your shoulders. We are social, active, and love to play with toys. We use our tails to keep us balanced! Our average lifespan is about 2 years and I promise we'll be your best friend until the end. When you come to visit, watch out- if you poke your finger into our cage we may think it is something yummy and nibble away! Please speak with an adoption for more information or to inquire about adoption!
