My name is Ziggy, and I live in Suffolk, England, with my husband Jon, our two dogs, our cat, and anywhere up to 40 rats.
I have owned rats for 20 years, but began running Shadowrat rat sanctuary around 2005 when it became clear that rats in this area were routinely being put to sleep simply due to lack of homes. At the time, there was no local rat rescue.
I now provide a loving, safe home for the rat shaped waifs and strays in Norfolk, Suffolk and, sometimes, further afield.
I primarily specialise in rats with behavioural problems or with special needs. These are often the rats most in need of help.
