    It's that time again! You can help a rescue- or more!- by donating items, bidding, or sharing the information about this event!

    The Travelin' Rat's 2018 Multi-Rescue World Rat Day Auction will take place on The Travelin' Rat's FB page (https://www.facebook.com/TheTravelinRat) from March 30-April 8, 2018! This event has been a huge success for the participating rescues over the past two years, but it's only made so by all of the amazing support from our wonderful fans!

    If you have anything that you would like to donate to help any of the participating rescues, please email TheTravelinRat(at)gmail(dot)com with a picture, description, approximate value of the item, which rescue you are donating to, and where you are willing to ship to (US only, another country only, US/Canada, worldwide). If possible, due to the nature of this event, it would be hugely helpful if donors are also able to cover shipping costs. Thank you!

    OK, I see these are all in the US now, and one out west. I thought there were more around here honestly, or should be

    Where's "around here"? It looks like a lot of the US is represented, 3 are on the west coast as of our last update. Two of the rescues are actually outside of the US, one in Canada and one in Itay. I even capitalized the countries.
    Rescues that take in rats worldwide are able to register with The Travelin' Rat. Of those 20 rescues that have registered in 2018, 14 of them responded to our invitation to participate. Two declined and the others never responded.
    If you believe that other rescues that take in rats should be participating in this event, please ask them to register with The Travelin' Rat, then they will get invited when we host events like this and we send them information that we find about things like grants, fundraisers, sweepstakes, and contests that they are eligible for. I can only do so much about getting the word out to rescues about registering with us.
