PHOENIX - Arizona Humane Society is most well-known for their care and adoption of dogs and cats, but they have recently been overrun with rats.
You might think the Arizona Humane Society has a pest problem, but these rats are fun pets who are looking for new homes.
Some of these critters, including rabbits, have been at the shelter since May and over 70 animals are available for adoption.
Arizona Humane Society says that these little pets are perfect for families who can't take in a dog or cat, but would love a critter to call their own.
They recommend that families interested in adopting a rat or rabbit do research prior to adopting, but families will receive tips and care information at the time of adoption.
These animals are available at Arizona Humane Society's Campus for Compassion at 1521 W. Dobbins Road in Phoenix.
Rats are available for adoption for $10 and rabbits are available for $35, a price that includes spay and neutering, a veterinarian exam and a discount on rabbit products.
For more information, visit the Arizona Humane Society online or call 602-997-7586 extension 1045 to ask about specific animals.
