The information below lists organisations, and some individuals, mostly in the North West and North East of England, that may take in and foster rats in need of rescue, before then rehoming them.

Please note that inclusion on the list does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement by the Society. Prospective owners should take time to research the "Rescue" they are proposing to adopt from, to ensure they are happy with their ethics and practices.

Rat Rescue Network UK on Facebook, as well as being useful to help rescues needing new homes, also has information and resources that might be helpful.

NERS members, who take in rescues for rehoming, and would like to be on this list, please contact the Rescue Fund Administrator. Also, if you find any of this information has changed or is out of date, please do let us know.
