December is a busy time for animal rescues, while you can imagine a lot more people will come forward to adopt when they want to give a home to a needy animal during the Holiday season, rescues also see a lot of animals being surrendered before their owners leave for Winter vacations. It’s an important time for rescues to build up funding and resources when people are thinking of donating, because in January each rescue sees animals who were purchased as impulse Holiday gifts coming in to the shelters, and donations dry up when people have depleted their budget on presents.
During the month of December 10% of all of the sales on Alma Rodentia will be donated between three rescue groups that help rats. Shoppers can use a coupon code to donate 10% of their order to one of three rescues, and 10% of all other orders will be split between the three groups at the end of the month.
This month’s special featured group is Central Texas Rat Rescue. Central Texas Rat Rescue is a small rescue group based in Austin, Texas, who take in and adopt out pet rats. CTRR spays or neuters every rat that comes through their rescue, which can add up to being a huge expense. You can follow Central Texas Rat Rescue on Facebook to learn more about how they are helping save homeless rats in Texas. When you shop in the Alma Rodentia store, use the coupon code CTRRHELP at checkout to designate your 10% donation to go to their rescue.
I’d also like to send a shout out to The Travelin’ Rat, who is featuring Central Texas Rat Rescue as their rescue of the month for December as well to help raise awareness and funding for them. The Travelin’ Rat is a group that offers fundraising and networking for rat rescues worldwide, providing an invaluable asset to rescues who are always strapped for funding and can use all of the marketing help they can get. When you donate to The Travelin’ Rat, that funding becomes available to rescues in the way of annual donations, emergency grants, and more. Follow The Travelin’ Rat on Facebook to learn more about how TTR helps rat rescues. When you shop in the Alma Rodentia store, use the coupon code TTRHELP at checkout to designate your 10% donation to go to their charity.
North Star Rescue, the rescue you’ll hear the most about here since it’s the rescue I founded, has been operating for ten years and has been able to take in homeless rodents from all over the US. Having started off as my small rescue project, North Star Rescue has grown over the years and has taken in and placed thousands of animals in to new homes since opening it’s doors. You can follow North Star Rescue on Facebook to learn more about what is happening at North Star Rescue. When you shop in the Alma Rodentia store, use the coupon code NSRHELP at checkout to designate your 10% donation to go to their rescue.
