Common questions: 

  • Where are you located? San Tan Valley, Arizona (near Mesa) 

  • What are your hours of operation? Sundays are our pick up day

  • How do I adopt? Read through Adoption Policies

  • Do you ship? No, I do not ship as it is expensive and too hot here. 

  • Is there a waiting list? No, not any longer. 

  • May I adopt babies from different litter? Yes!! They all wean together.

Please use the navigation bar at the top of this page to view our policies, and who may be available for adoption on the "available" page. I do have additional information located through the drop down menu. There you can view links on diets, caging, and care. 

Please do not just email me asking for a rat... I am not a pet store I do not do things that way, you cant just "swing by" and pick up a rat. My rats are raised in my home around our 'normal' day to day, work, play and life. I may not always be available and many emails are often answered late in the evening or on weekends. 

I do try and send out a newsletter about things to come through the month, litters and what we may be planning. You may sign up for the newsletter by joining the website. I will not send more than one a month. 

I have been breeding for 20+ years and have learned so many things about rats and their care. There are MANY opinions and outdated information out there. I have found what works for us here to allow the rats to be raised happy. I have many that last 3-5 years of age with out tumors and major health issues. As I really feel the worst part of owning rats is that they just do not live long enough, it aches the heart. What ever I can do to make them stay with me a little longer I will.

**Current Rat News** 
There has been a case of Rat Bite Fever from a local rat in Mesa, Az obtained from a feeder breeder pet store. 

Rat-Bite Fever and Pet Rats: How Concerned Should We Be?

The type of rat-bite fever that is most common in North America is caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis. Another form of rat-bite fever is caused by Spirillum minus and occurs primarily in Asia. Rats can carry both bacteria as part of the normal flora of their respiratory tract. Because of this, rats do not usually exhibit any outward signs of illness from these bacteria.

People are infected with the bacteria through rat bites or exposure to urine, feces or saliva of rats that carry the organism.

Rat-bite fever is not a reportable disease in the US, so the actual number of cases that occur annually is unknown. However, the incidence of the disease in the US is very low, and death from rat-bite fever is also rare. The cases that are known are those that are documented in the medical literature. To complicate matters, the clinical signs of rat-bite fever in people are nonspecific, and the tests to isolate or identify the organisms involved are not routine. Often, a history of exposure to a rat, in combination with the clinical signs, is the clue that doctors use to suspect rat-bite fever in patients, and then diagnosis is based on specific testing methods. If the disease is suspected or diagnosed, treatment with antibiotics is curative in most cases.

What should you do? As with any animal that carries a risk of zoonotic disease, hand-washing after handling is of utmost importance. Using either soap-and-water or an alcohol-based hand cleanser after handling the pet rat and cleaning the cage is mandatory. Children should be instructed to always wash their hands after playing with the pet and to always tell parents about any bites that occur when handling the pet. Owners of pet rats should immediately report unexplained fevers, illness or rashes to their healthcare provider. Specialized screening tests to see if your pet rat is a carrier of S. moniliformis are available from veterinarians, but make sure you call ahead to see which veterinarians provide this test, as it is not routinely offered.
