OLM Pet of the Week- Meet Whiskey

It's time for this week's Pet of the Week and we're excited to introduce you to this single boy who's looking for some female company. Meet Whiskey, a sweet boy who is up for adoption through Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue.

Whiskey was given a new chance at life after he was transferred into the OPRR's care from the SPCA where he was given only a few days to live. He came into the rescue with some serious hormonal problems which the rescue quickly solved by taking him to the vet and having him neutered. Over the span of three weeks, Whiskey has gone from a boy who liked to bite, to one who loves snuggles and being carried around. He even comes when called and has no issues with being picked up! This sweet boy is looking for a home with two or more female rats, as he has a lot of trouble making friends with other males. He can also be adopted with any of the females listed on the OPRR site.

If you’re interested in meeting Whiskey, or any other of their adoptables listed on their website, please feel free to contact Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue through their site, where you can also find their adoption application form. Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue is also found on Facebook, and Twitter.

If you aren’t able to foster or adopt but want to support Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue, you can donate on their site here, or purchase one of their adorable 2017 calendars! All of the donated funds will go right back towards vet costs, food, fabric, and bedding to help more rescue rats.

About the Rescue: Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and sharing information on pet rats. They are involved in rescuing, fostering, and finding forever homes for their pet rats. They advocate adoption over purchasing from a pet store or breeders, as the supply of rats far exceeds the demand, and the conditions at commercial breeders who supply pet stores with their rats are inhumane.


OLM Pet of the Week is a weekly segment on our site which showcases adoptable pets in our Capital. Each week a new pet will be featured in order to help them find a loving forever home. Any Ottawa-based animal rescue interested in having an adoptable pet featured can email isabel@ottawalife.com.
