The American Fancy Rat and Mouse Association is not a rescue organization. Contact a rodent rescue near you. Many organizations will not take in “owner turn-ins” and will only take animals surrendered to the local humane society/animal shelter. To find a rescue check the AFRMA Directory, one of the clubs on the Links page, or do a search on the Internet.
Contact your local veterinarian for any illness questions.
