Adoption Scheme

Post by Marierat » 18 Jul 2009 20:31

I recently decided to adopt 'Tyson' and pay about £5 a month to help with his training and upkeep. Has anyone else joined this scheme?

Yes we did, too!
We adopted Allan a couple of weeks ago, and my friend adopted Chosen One.
I hope more rat fanciers will join, I think it's a good thing.

Kind regards!

I was torn between picking Allan or Tyson, and then I chose Tyson ;)

I think this is brilliant for those out there that would love to have one themselves but for whatever reason can't have one at the moment. This way it can like they own a bit of one while helping out a good cause. :D

Any scheme like this is good. I never had enough room in my bath for a killer whale so i adopted one instead. i got sent regular updates about it and a photo of its dorsal fin.

It would have been funny if we both had chosen the same rat :)
Actually, the name of the rat is unimportant , it is important however to adopt any rat ;-)

That is what I thought too, but they say they only have GPRs. But the one that Exmoor Zoo have paid for to be named looks like an Emin too!
