The goal of the Pittsburgh Rat Lovers Club and Rescue is to promote the well being of rats through education, rescue, and adoption.
We are based out of Western Pennsylvania, but have members around the globe. We have two websites that we use to help spread information. This is our official website that contains a lot of great educational resources including the group's informational handout.
You can also find additional links to some great educational sites, suppliers, and fun activities.
We can also be found within Google Groups at http://groups.google.com/group/pittsburgh-rat-lovers-club. Here you can use your Google Account to log into and participate in our active message boards. All you need is a verified Google account to apply for membership.
For additional info on how to become a member please read out member guidelines.

In March 2014, a joint effort by animal rescuers in PA resulted in a major rescue of almost 200 domesticated pet rats that were being kept in deplorable, horrific conditions in Shoemakersville, PA.
We expect the final number saved to be 250 rats or even more. We have here at the PRLC with the babies that are being born over 100 rats from the Shoemakersville hoarder rescue.
Many of the pet rats rescued so far are seriously injured and ill, and require costly medical care. Please donate for this, and also to help defray gas costs for transporting the healthy pet rats to various adopters across the country.
This is a very expensive endeavor with many volunteering their time and personal resources. Won't you please help give these sweet animals a better life than they have ever known before?
