Portrait Roulette Fundraiser!

We are kicking off 2023 with a new fundraiser to help bring in money for vet bills and the like. We have artists willing to draw your favorite pictures of your rats - with one catch! Some of our artists are extremely talented, completed art school, had their own shows in galleries, and so on. But some of them.... well let's just say haven't. For a $25 donation, we will send you a digital copy of one of our artist's rendering of a photo of your choice. For $40, we will send you the physical copy in the mail! Artists with a variety of styles and skills (or lack thereof) are on standby to bring you a smile, no matter what! 

To get started, follow the link to our Square page to send your donation, and email us your photo of choice to!

How we help

Second Chance Heroes has two main goals: to provide loving homes for rats in need, and educate the public on responsible pet ownership and rat care


Finding homes for rats in need

In the relatively short time that Second Chance Heroes has been operated, more than 300 rats in need have found their forever homes!


Responsible pet ownership and community resources.

Do you work at a shelter and want to learn more about caring for rats? We can help! Send us an email to schedule a special training on shelter-specific rat husbandry and care!


Honoring our Heroes

Our Heroes In Our Hearts tribute recognizes the incredible bond we share with our rats. It acts as a space to honor and memorialize our loved ones who have left us.


Support Second Chance Heroes

We could not do our lifesaving work without the help of our community! Donations cover the cost of veterinary bills, food, and more! Please consider making a donation to support our work!
