Mission Statement

NEW RATTITUDE, Inc., a non-profit charitable corporation incorporated in 2008, is a nationwide group dedicated to the rescue and adoption of abandoned, abused, neglected, sick, or unwanted Rat Terriers and Rat Terrier mixes.
In private foster homes, the dogs are nurtured, socialized, trained, supported medically, and provided with professional veterinary care while we work diligently to find them new and permanent adoptive homes where they will be safe, loved, and properly and humanely cared for the rest of their lives.

Funding Needs

Donate $: We try to keep our adoption rates as low as practical, so that as many rescued dogs as possible can get into "Furever Homes." This means that we rely on monetary donations to help us pay for veterinary costs, shelter pull fees, medicines, microchips, etc. Every donation is greatly appreciated.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
