Have you ever considered adopting a pet rat?
In a social media post on Thursday the City of Vancouver said you can adopt a furry rodent from the animal shelter for $5.
“They’re clean, social and super smart,” the post on Instagram said. “They can also be trained to use a ‘rat toilet’ and respond to commands.”
There are more than 25 rats available for adoption in Metro Vancouver, according to Petfinder.com, an online database of animals looking for a home.

Did you know that rats make awesome pets? They’re clean, social and super smart. They can also be trained to use a “rat toilet” and respond to commands. Incredibly friendly, rats enjoy human companionship and make great pets for children – even better than mice, gerbils and some hamsters. Right now our Animal Shelter has a bunch of rats up for adoption, for just $5. Visit vancouver.ca/adopt or contact our shelter at firstname.lastname@example.org Tag us in a picture of your new pet rat in their happy #FURever home. #CityofVancouver #Adopt #AnimalRescue,
