Three rats snuggle in a hammock

The rescue doesn't make money from rescuing; the average adoption runs at a significant LOSS, so donations and fundraising make the rescue work possible!
If you want to support the work we do or thank us for a way we've helped you, whether that be directly or through our educational work, the best way is to donate via the details below:

🇦🇺 Bank transfer (for our Aussie supporters):
BSB: 064130
Account #: 1108 1198
Name: RRH Donations

We also have a PayPal account to receive donations from our international supporters.
Make a donation today through the PayPal Giving Fund at, or donate directly to us through the button below.

By donating to the rescue, you are helping us:

  • Provide food, equipment and housing for all the animals still in our care, rehabilitating or waiting for adoption
  • Cover vet bills, which is our largest financial outlay by a large amount
  • Fund our safehouse and transport networks during emergency rescue operations
  • Create and curate high quality educational content and striving to improve welfare and quality of life for rats everywhere

Rachie's Ratirement Home Inc. is a registered charity with deductible gift recipient endorsement which means eligible donations to our rescue can be claimed as part of your annual tax return! Please send any queries to
