Sales Policies & Pricing Info

My prices are average for ratteries in the USA. It is based off of the cost to feed and raise babies, time and effort (this is a full time job), caging, toys, hammocks, organic veggies, bedding, litter, import/shipping cost, vetting and meds if needed. My rats are some of the most pedigreed rats in the United States which means they have been bred for health and longevity for decades not a few short years. Pricing is also based off of the fact that the rats at the USA ratteries are now having to be blood tested for various reasons such as Seoul. So some of the cost goes into that for future generations.

My rats are bred according to AFRMA show standards. My rats are bred to reach my personal goals. And because of that requesting specific color  or patterns on your schedule is not an option. Babies are offered on my schedule. My females are bred at about 4 - 6 months of age. And I bred when the girls are ready. Breeding quality animals takes time, so plan to wait for babies. If you are looking for fast and cheap rats, a pet shop or reptile store may be your best option. However you would not be getting the health and longevity  and sweet temperament of my rats.

Baby Pictures

If you want to bring a flash drive I can give you litter pictured. But no last minutes on that. One weeks notice please. Incase I stored them already.

Food

Main Diet

Please read about rat diet on my Diets Page

Please note that one rat eats approximately 2 pounds of food per month. Pet shops sell similar diets for $3.50 lb. And it's not fresh. I only do 2 lb bags. And you can get up to 6 pounds.  

2 pounds: $6

4 pounds: $12

6 pounds: $18

 

I do not mix the senior dog food into my grain for this price. You can do that at home. Babies especially need it for protein until they are 3 months old. Many of you have dogs at home and like the food you use. So please do that. The pellets I do include are typically meat bird pellets for hen and waterfowl from the feed store. As its the most cost effective for me and the best quality for your pet.

Payment Policy - Read Thoroughly!

I only accept instant transfers through PayPal, not e checks which take up to a week to approve. I do not take checks, credit cards or cash.

Please note that I will not hold rats with no payment. Your name goes on them as soon as a payment is made.

I do not do down payments. Rats don't cost very much. So all payments are made in full upfront. If you do not pay for it, the rat will not be held for you. Its as simple as that. As a reminder I do not take money for future litters, or for a wait list fee! 

If you change your mind after paying for the rat, the entire amount is non refundable. The only exception to this is if I decide to back out for any reason. And in that case if you have already paid, I will return the entire amount.. All babies must be picked up the week they are ready, I do not hold them for later. If you do not pick them up that week, I will not refund and you will not be able to adopt later. I will keep the payment as a boarding fee. The rat goes back up for adoption.

** I will not wait for you to set up a brand new PayPal account. PayPal can take anywhere from one week to 3 months to verify your bank account. So I wont hold rats for you to do that. If you do not currently have a PayPal account please set one up before contacting me about adopting. Sorry I had to post this but I've had people go all the way through the adoption process and pick out babies only to tell me at the last minute they don't have PayPal. But most of my adopters already have PayPal as most people shopping on the internet do. So PayPal is convenient for most everyone.

Making Payments Through PayPal

1. You must write in the PayPal transaction which rats & extra items the payment is for.  Do NOT leave the transaction blank. Add which numbers the babies are and which parents they are from.With large litters and everyone is using PayPal I need to know which rats to put your name on to mark as sold. It is too confusing to weed through dozens of our past emails and see if I can possibly find somewhere that you wrote which babies you wanted, it needs to be in the PayPal transaction!!!
2. Email me for address to send payment to. Do not try and send it to the address on my contact page! That is not my PayPal address!

 

 

PayPal is not free! They charge the vendor and those fees are passed onto you. So I have calculated that for you. Be sure to add this to the payment every time or it will count as a partial payment and I can't put your name on the animal until you resend it.

Add:
.25 for $6 payments - food
.50 for $12 payments - food
.75 for $18 payments - food
$1.35 for $35 payments
$1.76 for $40 payments
$2 for $50 payments
$2.40 for $60 payments
$2.80 for $70 payments
$3.00 for $80 payments
$4.00 for $100 payments
$5.00 for $150 payments
 


Do not pay for a food without asking me first. I need to be sure I have it.
