*Please leave us a comment with your email address if you would like to be added to our group where we store all of our evidence against this Rattery!!!
On Monday 19th of May 2014 it was annouced on Rainbow Rats Haven facebook group by the owners Elizabeth and Matthew Harris of Newbridge, South Wales, that they were closing their group and business as the Social Services had demanded for the 2nd time in three months that all their animals had to leave their property. They were told they had to get rid of all of their rats back in February and a wonderful Rescue took them all in. 3 months later and they have another 150 rats at their property, not too mention at least 3 cats and 3 dogs. Again the Rescue decided they would take in the rats and my husband and I picked 85 rats from their home and transported them to the rescue. One female had a miscarriage on my lap. Other rats were pregnant even though they were very young. There were rats with Mange, Mite, Lice, Respiratory infections, eye infections, lumps, missing feet, cuts and in every single group of girls there was at least 1 male. Some of these rats were only 3 weeks old and away from mum and now possibly pregnant. There was also another hamster cage that had only two rats in it. When we checked, there was a 6 week old female and an older male who was having heart palpitations. Other evidence has come to light that they have sold babies as young as 3 weeks old and passed them off as older. Rats have been sold and died within a few days. They have also allegedly dumped rats on a vets doorstep on at least 2 occasions. The evidence is piling up! Please help me try to stop them from being able to have pets ever again by signing this petition which I will be sending to the RSPCA to investigate further. I have a group on facebook that is where I post all of my evidence. If anyone would like to join it and support us then please sign the petition and leave me your email address and I will add you.
Thank you very much for your time and support.
Please look into the evidence that we present to you along with this petition of the awful neglect and abuse that animals have suffered at the hands of Elizabeth and Matthew Harris of Newbridge, South Wales.
This is at least the 3rd time they have had to get rid of their animals but again and again they keep getting more.
Please put a stop to this once and for all and give them a lifetime ban on keeping animals.
