    The Travelin' Rat wants to thank ALL of their amazing fans for a fabulous year! During 2017, $18,301 was raised by 19 rescues that have registered with us (http://www.thetravelinrat.org/rescues-we-have-helped.html). WOW!

    The Travelin' Rat's Rescue of the Month program will resume in February. We'll also be hosting the World Rat Day Auction in the spring, so please keep an eye out to see how you can help the rescues by donating, bidding, or sharing the information about the event. And the Rattie Giving Tree is planned for the end of the year again. If you have any other suggestions about how to help rescues in 2018, please contact The Travelin' Rat (http://www.thetravelinrat.org/about-us.html), as we are always open to new ways to help.

    There are numerous ways that you can help the rescues throughout the year outside of The Travelin' Rat's events. Please take a look at all the ways to help and see what you can do!
    http://www.thetravelinrat.org/ways-to-help-us-help-rescues.html
    Some of these are very easy and don't require any money from you (ResQ Walk and GoodSearch), while other fundraisers donate a portion of each sale to a specified charity (Amazon Smile, Bissell, Chewey.com, GoodShop, iGive, Rescue Chocolate, Small Pet Select, VegeCyber). You can also help your favorite charity by buying or selling on eBay! We have noted which of the rescues that have registered with The Travelin' Rat participate in each of the fundraisers, along with any special codes or links you may need to help them.

    The following rescues have benefitted from the efforts of The Travelin' Rat and all their generous supporters in 2017:

    Best Friend Rodent Rescue, Everett, WA
    Central Texas Rat Rescue, Austin, TX

    If you are part of a rescue or have a favorite rescue that takes in rats and is not listed here, please be sure to register or ask them to register with The Travelin' Rat in 2018! *Please note that the application forms on the site do need to be updated as The Travelin' Rat no longer takes in or gives out money.

    Baltimore peeps: Come out and see The Travelin' Rat at the World of Pets Expo on January 28 & 29th at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, MD again this year! (We will not be able to attend on Friday.) Trek, The Travelin' Rat's traveling rat doll will be on display, along with all his souvenirs from his travels!

    Thank you! So happy for our amazing rescuers that we can help in this way, and SO SO grateful to our amazing fans for what they do. Some of the emails we've received after our events or donations have been very emotional, and we've been really happy to see when one of the rescues we told about a contest or grant won something. :)
