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 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.
This was my first interaction with any pet adoption organization and I was more than impressed. The passion and integrity of everyone along the way was evident. The communication was excellent and we felt a part of the process at every step. When we had questions, they were answered. It really was hard to believe that every single person was a volunteer because they worked so hard for the good of the dog. Once we brought our Gracie (Cokie) home, we knew we were not abandoned and had several resources at our disposal should we need them. Gracie has given more to us than we could ever imagine and we may not have known that joy had New Rattitudes not been doing the wonderful work that they do.
Review from Guidestar
We have so much admiration for the volunteers at New Rattitude and the wonderful job they do. They don't just rescue rat terriers, they enrich the lives of those of us who adopt as well. The love and care they put into screening, placement and follow up is unmatched. The folks at New Rattitude stay involved and in contact through newsletters, group chats and personal email. They are always there to answer questions and offer guidance on anything and everything you need to know to adjust, train and keep your rattie happy and healthy. New Rattitude is a top notch rescue and adoption group - we feel so lucky to have found them and become part of the family through our two adoptions. We recommend New Rattitude to everyone looking for a smaller breed dog to love!
This is an amazing dog rescue organization specializing in rat terriers. We adopted two dogs through this group and the process was flawless. Our first experience was so positive that we had no doubts about working with New Rattitude again for our second dog. The entire group of volunteers is highly committed and knowledgable about the breed. Also, they have a thorough screening process ensuring the animals are in safe, loving environments. This is crucial, as many of the dogs in their care have been bounced around a lot before finding safety with New Rattitude. The foster parents are incredible and give so much time and energy to the animals. When we adopted our second dog from New Rattitude the behavior team was ready to help when we had a few problems with barking and house breaking. I found the experience to be so positive that I was eager to lend some of my spare time to volunteer with this group. As a 100% volunteer organization, any fundraising or adoption fees go directly to rescuing more dogs. They pull dogs out of high kill shelters from all over the country, bring them to safety and find them loving homes that are forever. New Rattitude is saving lives and I absolutely love this organization!
