 Guys -

> than we thought. There is a cage full of 44 young females, a second
> cage of 33 males. The rats are overcrowded and beating each other up
> they have no heat in the room and the house has no running water. The
> rats are afraid of people and just need time - they are most
varieties of black (berk, self, irish, hooded, capped), there are some dumbos,
> there is one hairless, some fawn, agouti, etc.
> THere are 18 babies from 3 litters that are all under 3-4 weeks old,
> and another expecting mother.
> we DESPERATELY need foster homes - anywhere really, but mostly in MA,
> CT, NY, NH, etc - we are ordering more martins cages to hold them
all. We are trying ot make appts to spay some of the females as we speak.
