Find Me My Furever Home is a weekly video featuring animals up for adoption at the Chilliwack SPCA. It is put together by The Progress in partnership with the Chilliwack SPCA.
The Chilliwack SPCA recently took in more than 80 rats as part of a large-scale animal intake, and Mercy is just one of them.
“She was in pretty horrendous condition along with many, many other rats in the same condition,” said Chloé MacBeth, Chilliwack SPCA branch manager.
“She has come a long way in terms of her behaviour. She’s super friendly.”
MacBeth advises pet owners to spay their rats. It is good for their health because they develop fewer mammary tumours and ovarian cancers which is the leading cause of premature death in female rats.
There are many rats from the same intake as Mercy who are up for adoption throughout the Lower Mainland.
Due to COVID-19, the Chilliwack SPCA branch is only open by appointment. You can call them at 604-823-6612.
If you’re interested in adopting Mercy, or any other animal from the Chilliwack SPCA, call the shelter. You can also go online to spca.bc.ca to see all of the animals that are up for adoption.
Mercy’s SPCA ID number is: 513135.
