Meet Pinky and The Brain! This dynamic duo is ready to take over your heart and home. Pinky and The Brain are a bit shy at first, but are won over by snacks and cool enrichment toys. These two love to be together, whether it be in their hammocks, in their huts, or on your shoulder, they love to be side by side! Pinky and The Brain are looking to have a cool enclosure full of different levels and things to do to keep them busy while their paw-rents are away.
To apply for Pinky and The Brain, please fill out our rat adoption application online, or come visit them during our open hours Tuesday-Sunday 12-4pm!
