There are not enough kind words for NR. I found them after a long search for a rat terrier, followed on Facebook and found my Polly who is a perfect fit to our family and bff to our older RT. For a first time adopter I was impressed with the entire process, detailed ap, calls, interviews, house visit and the moment she was put into my arms, priceless. Over the last few years I've handmade items to donate to their retail store, on line auction and jamboree to help raise money to rescue more of this beautiful breed. The volunteers and fosters go above and beyond to find perfect matches for dogs and families, they all have hearts of gold.
Very professional well run organization. They have great foster homes and the adoption process is very detailed as they want ensure the best homes for their rescued Ratties.
I have a friend who has just been blessed with a new dog through the efforts of New Rattitude. They did such a great job of matching pet to person I came to appreciate the tremendous amount of effort put into finding the "right" permanent home for each of their beloved animals. That friend has since become a volunteer herself to help others find the perfect permanent home for each homeless animal.
I love volunteering with these great people and with us having so many permanent adoptions for all these adorable dogs it makes one feel great.
I adopted a dog from New Rattitude and the experience was SO positive, I signed up to volunteer. This group really cares about the dogs they rescue and everyone goes the extra mile to make sure these thrown-away dogs find loving, safe, "fur-ever" homes. They rock!!
I adopted a wonderful dog from this group. They are the most caring dog rescue I have ever encountered. All of he people that I interacted with had all of the dos' best interest at heart. Everyone wanted to make sure this dog had the perfect home for him.
I am the Treasurer for this fine organization. One of the many things I admire about New Rattitude is that nearly all the funds raised through adoption fees, donations, and fundraising events go back to the care of the dogs and to further New Rattitude's mission to rescue and find new adoptive homes for abandoned, abused, neglected, sick, or unwanted rat terriers. Last year, less than 2% of the budget was spent on administrative costs! I am proud that we can assure our supporters that when they donate to New Rattitude, the funds don't pay a professional fundraiser or a CEO's salary -- we are a group of caring and committed volunteers who freely give our time and talents to make an impact on the lives of the breed we care so much about.
As a volunteer, I follow up with New Rattitude adopters to make sure things are going well with their New Rattitude doggies. While most are doing great, those who have an issue are provided with a New Rattitude volunteer to help them through the transition. Isn't that great! New Rattitude is 100% supportive of their adopters in every way from the beginning until however long they are needed. I am a foster parent as well and can only praise New Rattitude for their support of their foster parents and their dedication to rescuing Rat Terries in need.
New Rattitude is a great rescue. We have adopted 3 dogs from them, and have been thrilled with the ease and caring we received throughout the process. This rescue works very hard to place the right dog with the right family. We could not be happier! Our family became foster parents for New Rattitude many years ago. We have alSo worked with the adoption process, and transporting dogs.
I am proud to have been a volunteer of New Rattitude since it's formation.
The main goal of the group is to rescue Rat Terriers, full and mixed breed, that have been abandoned and in danger of being euthanized in high kill shelters, and to diligently search for the most qualified, safe, and loving adoptive homes, where the dogs will be treated with respect and cared for with love.
..The fostered dogs are cared for in dog experienced and fully screened foster homes until they are ready to be adopted. They are provided the most excellent vet care, are supported physically and emotionally by a volunteer group that is located in all corners of this US.
N R is known for it's members being committed, compassionate, experienced in all aspects of dog care, having elected teams of leaders that assure that the group is led in a most excellent manner in administrative, financial, philosophy, and mission. The leaders are trusted by all to take NR and it's foster Rat T's to the highest level of rescue success, not so much judged by numbers of dogs placed, but also by the numbers of lives changed, and bright futures possible....both for the dogs And for the volunteers, and surely for the adoptive families.
If I searched everywhere, I could not find a dog rescue group that would touch my heart and soul like New Rattitude and it's volunteers have. Let us all keep holding hands together for the good purpose of saving and changing lives.
