Chickpea is a one-year-old male domestic rat who’s up for adoption at the Chilliwack SPCA

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.

Cats and dogs get adopted quite frequently at the Chilliwack SPCA, but those who have significantly longer stays at the shelter are the “smalls.”

The smalls include rabbits, guinea pigs and rodents like rats.

Meet Chickpea, a one-year-old male domestic rat who’s looking for his ‘furever’ home.

“He’s very, very curious and sweet… very affectionate,” said Chloé MacBeth, Chilliwack SPCA branch manager, adding that rats are smart animals and quite “misunderstood.”

“They are wonderful introductory and beginner pets,” MacBeth said.

Chickpea’s SPCA ID number is 503280.

If you’re interested in adopting Chickpea, or any other animal from the Chilliwack SPCA, call 604-823-6612. Hours are Friday to Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. You can also call to make an appointment outside of those hours.
