Please read the SALES POLICY before inquiring about any available animals

This is private property and NOT a business. We breed these animals out of our home on our small farm. Please do not just show up and expect to purchase an animal like you would at a pet store. You will be asked to leave. All inquiries into the animals here can be made via text or email and an appointment must be made for pick ups. 

NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

A long time ago, I had several rats that I raised for pets. As time went on, my children grew, I got out of raising rats. 


Now, 15 years later, I have ratties again!!


Pets, Breeders and Feeders will be available.


But for now, the journey of rats has begun again!


We currently have:

Standard, Dumbo, Rex, Double Rex, Velveteen, Double Velveteen, High White, Pink-Eyed White, Black-Eyed White, Agouti, Blue, Silvermane, Wheaton, Capped, Hooded, Variegated Hooded, Masked, & others that pop up!
