The Travelin' Rat was founded May 2008. We are an all-volunteer organization, dedicated to helping rescues that take in rats. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, incorporated in the State of Maryland.
Our mission is to help animal rescues, especially those that take in rats, wherever we can, in whatever way we can. We generally do this through our fundraising efforts, but we also help rescues by sitting with them at events, helping with transports, and spreading the word when rescues need help.
We raise funds by selling items online then donate them to different rescues that take in rats through our Rescue of the Month program. Our Etsy Shop is designed to compliment our online sales in our fundraising efforts for animal rescues.
