North Star Rescue needs rat savvy volunteers with specific rat handling experience. This volunteer opportunity is best suited to someone who has had a mischief of rats. We have an ongoing intake of rats from a variety of situations which requires the patience to help socialize these animals to help them feel safe and secure. Many have been very neglecte1d.

However, if you are someone with some previous animal experience either through volunteering or with your own pets and is willing to expand your caring nature out to rats, we have staff who can train you. Socialization is a critical part of helping to get our animals adopted into forever homes.
