Adopt Me: Matilda the curious rat

She would prefer a home that would give her a lot of attention

OrilliaMatters, in partnership with the SPCA Orillia Animal Centre, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hi there! My name is Matilda, I am a young female Dumbo rat. I absolutely love attention and being held, I love when the staff great me every morning, they have the best treats. I am looking for a new home to call my own, a home where I will get a lot of handling and attention. I am such a sweet girl and I am patiently waiting for my new family. 

Matilda is a curious girl who loves to be held. If you are looking to add a stunning Dumbo rat into your home, please call the Orillia Animal Centre.

Due to COVID our Centre is not open to the public, however all adoptions are over the phone, email, and zoom. If you are interested in adopting Matilda, please email us at
