Adoption Process

  1. Contact me and ask for the adoption application and contract. (Where there are babies to reserve.) I only do a wait list for hairless babies.
  2. Read the contract first. Then fill out the application, if you approve of my terms.
  3. I will review the application and get back with you with my decision on adoption.
  4. If I approved I will put your name on the rats you want as soon as a payment is made, via PayPal.
  5. YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO MAKE A PAYMENT OR THE RATS WILL BE AVAILABLE AGAIN!!
  6. After payment is made, I will give you my address and we will set up a pick up date and time. (Hours at the bottom of all pages.) Please be kind and be on time and no more than 5 minutes early/late. I may have other adopters or Dr.'s appointments I need to get to and I can not be waiting around.
  7. Once the babies go home, give them 48 hours to settle in before you handle them.
  8. Enjoy the babies!
  9. Send me updates on the babies. I worry about my kiddo's!

Policies

I am a closed rattery to prevent germs and viruses being walked into my rattery and devastating my colony. This means you cannot root through my litters to choose a baby before you purchase. All babies are chosen from the website, after I have posted pictures, and then you can come pick up the babies you have paid for when they are ready to go home. No one goes into my rattery. This is non negotiable. Picking babies from a bin is a pet shop experience that I simply cannot offer adopters. My rats lives are more important to me than you can imagine. And their safety is of utmost importance.
