Welcome to Any Rat Rescue

Find us on Facebook!

Any Rat Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to finding loving, forever homes for rats in need, serving the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas..

We are approaching nearly 800 adoptions since our inception in 2004. We are a no-kill rescue that truly accepts any domestic rat, regardless of health, age, or temperament.

Any Rat Rescue is not a shelter, but rather a network of caring foster homes extending from Metro Phoenix to Tucson. Please contact us at info@anyratrescue.org for more information.


At this time our foster homes are full and our resources are stretched to their limits. We are overloaded due to taking in rats that were abandoned and left to breed freely at an extended stay hotel and are currently unable to take in surrenders. In the Phoenix area, we are referring families to the Arizona Humane Society. In Tucson, please contact Humane Society of Southern Arizona. Both organizations do take pet rats.
