Spayed female or neutered male rats (Toronto, ON)
« on: March 29, 2011, 01:45:43 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'm looking for spayed female rats, or neutered male rats... Either are alright. I live in Toronto (major intersection is Jane & Wilson, so anywhere up to a 30 minute distance is alright). I've been reading up on rats for about 3 months, and have got a wonderful home set up for them. :( I just can't seem to find any breeders in my area (the nearest reputable breeder seems to be located in Ottawa).

I guess my last resort will be a pet store, but I've heard all the terrible things about the poor little ratties from pet stores, and that purchasing from them would only help encourage their mistreatment of animals... :(


Hope someone can help me out!

here are some rescue options, which would be way better than having to buy from a pet store. sometimes they have transportation avail. if that's an issue.

Wow, thank-you for the quick reply!

I just sent in an application for Raye and Rini (Rini's picture is yet to be put up, but I haven't seen any rats so far that I didn't instantly fall in love with!). It says that it might take 3 days for a response, but I'm not sure if I have that much time. :/ I don't have a driver's license, so I depend on my dad (not even my mom drives, haha) to take me places (ex. for pet supplies). Friday's the only time he has to drive me anywhere, so if the application can't get processed by then... as;dfj *tears hair out* Raye is so beautiful!

Well, I guess all I can do is cross my fingers and HOPE!


Thanks again!
