REQUIRED READING | Adoption Guidelines | Adoption Fees | Wait List | Application


  1. To make sure we're on the same page when you apply, we require that you read our Adoption Guideline page and take some time to browse through our website. This will give you a better idea of what to expect.

  2. Fill out and submit our adoption application. Please note that we actually encourage adopting 3 or more rats at once. They always bond very well and are happier in a trio. However, we do adopt in pairs and we never adopt out single rats. Our current wait list is at least one year long.

  3. We will contact you via e-mail to confirm your application. If everything checks out, you will be added to our wait list.

  4. Our web page and Facebook page will be updated with news and photos, so please check often. We do encourage people on our wait list to keep an eye on them for updates.

  5. Once the babies are almost 6 weeks old (8-9 weeks for color point babies), we will contact you to confirm your reservation. If we don't receive a reply via e-mail within 48 hours, we will move to the next person on the list.

  6. Please note that a 50% non-refundable deposit and a photo of the cage setup is required to reserve your babies. See our adoption fees below for more information. Payment is not due until I contact you for reservations. We will arrange an adoption day once both the photo and deposit are received.

  7. You will be provided with a copy of the adoption contract, which must be signed on adoption day. Please be sure to bring your own travel cage and the remaining 50% payment.

Our rats are to be adopted out as PETS ONLY.
ABSOLUTELY NO BREEDING without prior approval!

Current Wait List

Last updated December 2, 2018

Our current wait for rats is at least a year. We breed quality pets and do not mass produce like a feeder breeder.

While we try to let our adopters choose their rats in the order they appear on my waiting list, things are not set in stone. We always get first pick of the litter to further the quality of future litters. Rest assured you will be happy with the rats you adopt from us, even if they are not your first pick.

If our wait list looks too intimidating for you, we always recommend adopting from Best Friend Rodent Rescue (BFRR). They are an official 501 (C) (3) home & foster based Non-Profit Rat Rescue & Shelter located in South Everett, WA. They've been saving rats since May 2010 and have adopted out over 2,000 ratties to new forever homes. BFRR has a special place in our hearts and we guarantee you will never regret contacting them!
