San Francisco Bay Area Chapter
Updated February 27, 1998
Our next scheduled meeting will be in March. No locations and times are available just yet. For the most recent information, please join our mailing list by writing to James Kittock (contact info removed).
In addition to rats and mice that we know are up for adoption at this moment, this flyer also lists all the area shelters which are likely to have rats
and mice who need homes. This flyer can be printed out, and we
encourage anyone in the bay area to distribute it to your local vet
office, pet supply store, shelter, etc. And if you're looking for a
new pet, look here first!
BARMCA RESCUE / SHELTER LISTINGS FLYER:
- BARMCA Rescue Flyer
- Postscript version of
the same flyer.
- Short flyer coming soon.
If you have any trouble printing this flyer (it should come out as one page)
please let Brian know! (Also tell him
what browser and version you used, what your hardware setup it, etc.)
The newsletter is going to be resurrected! Please let us know what you would like to see on it by mailing to M. Ekaterin (contact info removed).
Soon we'll have all sorts of information about BARMCA here. For now,
let me just say that the two major features of BARMCA are (1) we are
very informal, and (2) we are a pet based club. This combination
means that we have no set dues (we raise money when we need it) no
officers (anyone who has an idea is automatically responsible for it)
and certainly no fancy rat and mouse shows! Our central focus is the
care and welfare of our pets. Current club projects include
distributing rat care guides to area vets and pet shops, educational
"Rat and Mouse Days" at local pet stores, and rat and mouse
rescue to name a few.
Our bimonthly meetings (or "rat parties") are generally held the third
weekends of odd numbered months. (We have started rotating the exact
day so that more people can make it.) Anyone interested in rats and
mice as pets is welcome.
For general information, or to be added to the mailing or emailing
(contact info removed)
or Brian Lee (contact info removed).
(Note however that Brian is likely to claim ignorance, as he no longer
lives in California.) For updates and corrections to the BARMCA website, please contact M. Ekaterin (contact info removed). If you don't have email, try these contacts:
James Kittock, (contact info removed)
Jean Smith, (contact info removed)
For information on our Rat & Mouse Rescue Project contact Amanda Svensson
(contact info removed) or James Kittock
(contact info removed). We are currently working with the Humane Society of Santa Clara
Valley and hope to be working with other bay area shelters in the
near future. If you are looking for a pet rat, PLEASE contact
Amanda, James, Jean, or your area shelter first! (And check out our
(ir)regularly updated flyer.)
Looking for a pet rat or mouse?
Novalek, the parent
company of Oasis, has
donated a package of small animal products which we will happily use
in our rat rescue project. Donations of products which we can use
for our rat rescue project are greatly appreciated.
