Tell me everythign I need to take care of baby rats?

From what I understand rats can eat anything. My dad, as a pest control man found 2 baby rats (usually he just does away with them, not that he likes to but his job... :( but he brought these ones back and was only gonna show them to someone then set them free), I offered to take care of them till I was confident that they could be on their own. They're the smalles little things I ever seen. Both of them can fit in the palm of your hand. they DO have their hair, so they are capable of eating now. I want to know what I need to know in order to take care of them. I understand the dangers of rabies, but as of yet they are too young to know if they have them or not. I have it in my head to set them free when they get big enough, but at the same time I feel like I may become attatched. @Knowledgeable: Thanks a bunch.
