Rabbit Meadows
Probably the worst experience in my life. The person I have been communicating with over email is presumptuous and rude. I would not recommend this place and hope that a better shelter could take its place. They were extremely unprofessional and I feel bad for anyone who encounters them. Good luck if you choose to have a conversation with this person.

Best Friend Rodent Rescue
Little did I know that when I found Joanne and Best Friend Rodent Rescue on Facebook, that I would meet a kindred spirit and have the best adoption experience ever! She has an amazing rodent rescue that she operates out of her home and I adopted 2 adorable baby boys from her. She even offers neuter and spay options for your ratties for only $75! I checked many veterinarians and the lowest I could find was $250. My (neutered) baby boys are now living with my 2 senior girl ratties and they are one big happy family! Thank you Joanne!
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
