The Travelin' Rat

Welcome to The Travelin' Rat's 2018 Rattie Giving Tree!

Up to three trees are set up to help each of the rescues that have registered with The Travelin' Rat during 2018. These rescues deal with surrenders and hoarding situations and abuse cases all year long and we'd like to help bring some joy to them this holiday season!

If you would like to participate in this event, click on a tree link under each rescue, then click on an ornament to see more info about one of the rescue's animals and a donation button. You are welcome to click on and donate through as many ornaments and as many different rescue trees as you would like. A star with sparkles and an ornament that displays the recipient's photo have been donated to, but you can still make your donation out to that ornament. Please note that if the ornaments you wanted to donate through have already been used, you can always use the donate button underneath each tree.

Any and every amount is appreciated. We also have wishlists for the rescues in case you would like to send supplies to help them. Please note that donations go directly to each rescue, they DO NOT go to The Travelin' Rat. Rescues that have been granted 501(c)(3) status are marked with an asterisk (*), indicating that donations to them are tax-deductible in accordance with the law. For deductibility information, please check each rescue's website,, or, or check with your tax advisor.

Thank you for any help that you can give, whether donating or sharing this fundraiser. 💗 We can't do this without all of you. We'd love for this to be a huge event and make the holidays a little brighter for the rescues this year!

Thank you to Shane Riley for ALL of his effort on this project! It could not be a reality without him!
