TRC’s Rescue Program

TRC’s Rescue Program

Just like dogs and cats, small pets sometimes also become homeless. The fate of small pets is worse, however, because most shelters are not equipped to accept small pets. Small pets grow up faster than a dog or cat, so they’re also harder to place because they’re rarely still young when they’re up for adoption.

The Club does not run a shelter, but we do actively connect homeless animals with foster homes or new owners.

To adopt a rescue animal, become a foster home, or get help in re-homing your animals, contact our Rescue Program Director, Joshua.

To help the rescue program, please consider doing one of the following:

  • donating old caging and accessories, or donating a few dollars to the club. If you want your donations to be used specifically to help the Rescue Program, please note that when you donate.
  • becoming a foster home for rescue rodents. (Please remember that you will need a seperate building to do your quarantines).

The Rodent Club offers its members items at wholesale prices, special buys, and close-outs. We buy in bulk and pass the savings on to you.

To buy from the co-op, you first need to be a member in good standing (paying or not).

If you don’t see what you’re looking for, let us know. You’re also welcome to get other club members together and suggest an order. The more we can buy at once, the more money everyone saves!

Currently Offered:

50lb bags of Mazuri rat / mouse lab block at wholesale prices. Can not be shipped. To order, email at least 10 days prior to the next meet. If you will be ordering two or more bags, you may be asked to pay in advance.

Future Orders:

Pointer Hill animal caging is handmade locally in PA. It’s top quality (think Martin’s), but all cages are assembled, not kits. We can get you small pet caging or custom caging, but we need a larger order (about $500+). Available are mouse, rat, hamster, rabbit, guinea pig, and other pet cages. Wire can be either galvanived or PVC-coated.

Exercise Wheels and Accessories. A few of our members have expressed interest in doing a bulk order. You can get, for example, 6 1/2″ colored metal hamster-sizeds wheels for only about $2.00 each! We need a few more people to join in since we’re required to buy $200.00 worth from the distributor at a time.
