Rat Pricing

 

 

All of my rats are sold in same-sex groups of 2 or more. 

All rats are $40 each.

That is $80 per pair.

 

 

 

My prices are used to help cover rat expenses, adoption packets, 

and yearly testing which is very expensive!

I try to keep my prices fair. They are generally in line with other breeders that I know.

I am not out to make a profit (and really don't, rats are expensive to keep! Can you imagine how much food I go through? lol).

Breeding is a very expensive and time-intensive hobby. The amount of time I devote to not only care and cleaning of animals but to my website, facebook, pictures, and talking with adopters/answering questions is pretty much all of my time. I have no life outside of rats lol I do this for the passion of doing it, not to become rich. If I can make enough to cover just the food I would be happy, which generally is not the case at all!


I also take into account that by far most of my adopters come from about an hour+ drive to get to me. So I do acknowledge that and keep my prices slightly lower to account for that!

 

 

Payment Policy

I have several different options for payments. All payments must be paid in full before or at the time of pickup.


I accept cash (exact change only) or payment through the CASH APP by Square. I do not accept checks or money orders, sorry.

 

Cash App is free and 100% safe & secure. Your payment information is kept confidential and secure so I don't even see it. I will send you an invoice to your email address.

You can pay ahead of time! *If you pay ahead of time I will refund the price of the rat (-deposit) if for whatever reason you need to change your mind or can no longer take the rat.



 Deposits (Holds/Reserves)

Rats are reserved for a 50% nonrefundable deposit. This is taken from the total price, so if a rat is $40 you must pay $20 deposit and at the time of pickup you must pay the other $20.

 

 

Exceptions to the non-refundable status:

  1. If I decide you are no longer an approved adopter I will remove you from the waitlist and at my discretion refund. If you are caught lying, being dishonest, broke the contract or it was discovered you abused/neglected animals you will not be refunded.

  2. If I close down my rattery or go on a hiatus, everyone will be refunded in a timely manner.

  3. If a MAJOR life event has occurred that would prevent you from taking rats, you might be refunded at my discretion. Most of the time you will just be placed on hold but there may be exceptions, I'm not heartless!

Deposits paid to reserve a rat are non-refundable unless for some reason I am unable to provide the rat, such as a health issue or god forbid an accident occurs. I would first attempt to replace it with another suitable rat but if one is not available or you are not interested in those rats, then the fee will be refunded.




Travel Fees

I charge a flat-rate fee of $25 for travel within an hour of me. (When I am able to travel which is not often)
This is often lower than the business mileage fees that are suggested for travel. (Remember I have to make a round trip lol)

This fee must be paid upfront and is non-refundable.
