Many of the 500 rats are in overcrowded, dirty conditions.
Since July 2005, North Star Rescue has been saving the lives of small companion animals in need in the San Francisco Bay area of California. Rats, hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs and more have been helped by the rescue. In addition to helping individuals and small groups, the organization has also participated in several large-scale rescues over the years, most notably one called the Thousand Rat Rescue, which was documented on A&E network’s show “Hoarders.” Unfortunately, another large-scale rescue is now underway.
On June 23, 2015,North Star Rescue posted on its Facebook page that it is taking on the task of rescuing approximately 500 rats from a residence in the East Bay. Such rescues are never easy, but North Star Rescue has proved it can meet such a challenge. The announcement was full of optimism that the rats can be saved.
