If you need to re-home your rat(s) and would like to do so with the assurance that they'll end up in a loving, enriching home that best suits their individual needs, we've got your back.

Through Wolfstep Hollow's Rescue Program, we take in all kinds of rats from a variety of different backgrounds, including (but not limited to), lone rats, retired breeders, timid & skittish rats, and feeder bin rescues.


  • Bonded pairs & groups are never separated for any reason.

  • Timid & skittish rats are further socialized, at their own pace, using positive reinforcement training to increase chances of placement.

  • No rat is housed solo following their 14-day intake quarantine unless necessary for reasons pertaining to health or aggression.

  • Each rat will be placed in compatible homes with vetted caregivers.

  • All rats under our care live pet quality lives in enrichment-packed enclosures, with high quality food and treats, and daily access to free roaming sessions.
