About RTRC

How to Help

One of the goals of Rat Terrier Rescue Canada is to rehabilitate our rescued Rat Terriers to a healthy and happy state so that they can be adopted. We often rescue Rat Terriers that are in desperate need of medical care and come to us with multiple heath issues. Some of these very special Ratties have long term or terminal conditions and are not able to become healthy and adoptable. These special souls remain in fostercare with RTRC for the remainder of their lives. Many of these conditions require ongoing veterinarian visits and medications, and without your support, we can't continue to help these dogs. Please help these little Ratties live the remainder of their lives in comfort in a loving fosterhome. We appreciate every donation, and all donations go directly towards the care of Ratties in need. We are a non-profit organization with Charitable status in Canada.

Palliative Care Ratties


Sometimes we have foster dogs that are not adoptable due to ongoing terminal medical conditions. These dogs remain in the loving care of our fosterhomes, and require ongoing medical attention. Please consider donating to help these Rat Terriers life the rest of their lives in comfort. All donation amounts raised are used for required vetting for any current or future rescued Rat Terrier Rescue Canada dogs.
