Adoption Process and Application

We are thrilled that you're ready to open your home up to a ratty in need!

Once you submit your application, you can expect to receive an e-mail from us within 24 hours to set up a meet and greet. If we do not hear back from you within 24 hours of this e-mail, we will move on to the next applicant. It's important to us that these rats get into their forever homes as soon as possible. Meet and greets will take place where the rat is residing (we are fortunate enough to have fosters all over the area!) and if it is a good fit, you can take your new pet home that day!

Please consider these reasons for surrendering before you adopt, and whether or not any of them may apply to your immediate future. Remember rats only live 2-3 years, so we want to make sure they get to their forever homes!​

Allergies • New baby • Moving • Roommate/spouse conflict • New hobbies or interests • Work responsibilities • Not enough time • Unable to cover costs
