Socialise a HeroRAT pup


Support our HeroRAT pup's first steps to becoming a future hero by funding trainers like Uncle Albert to love and care for the pups, as well as socialise them to be happy and confident in human environments.

Our young rats begin socialisation at 4-5 weeks old just after opening their eyes for the first time. And they continue to enjoy this expert care from our handlers throughout their months of training!
