ONLY once you have filled out an application with EPR, you may be approved to adopt a rat from us unless otherwise told. There is a wait to reserve a baby, it can range from 2-3 weeks to 2-3 months depending on how old litters are and how many others are on the current wait list.
At approximately 2-3 weeks old, EPR will send out emails to the waiting list (4-5 people at a time) on the waiting list telling them it is their turn to reserve babies. ONLY after you receive this email are you able to reserve a baby, not before. You will have 24 hours from the time I send out the email to let me know if there is babies they would like to reserve. After this I will send out email to another group of people. ANYONE who has recieved an email during this reservation period will still have a chance after their 24 hours, it will just be first come first serve.
Staying at EPR- This means the baby is reserved
for us and is not available
Available- This means that the baby is available to
be reserved. I try to update this daily during
Reserved for ... - This means someone has
already reserved this baby.
Hold- This means we have not decided to keep this baby or not. If there is an interest in them, please let us know. It IS NOT guaranteed though.
EPR Waiting List: Our waiting list is created in order of recieving completed
applications and requests. The exceptions to this are:
(1) We, Ember of Passion Rattery, at
all times, have pick of the litter if interested;
(2) Professional breeders and ratteries;
(3) Returning customers.
Litters under the http://emberofpassionrattery.webs.com/currentlitters.htm tab are the ONLY litters that are available.
All babies from past litters have been adopted regardless of what the page says.
NOTE: We reserve the right to change the level of priority as seen fit at any point in time.
We reserve the right to deny anyone the ability to adopt from us for any or no reason.
Rat Breeding numbers to keep in mind:
Gestation is 21-24 days, Babies are able to go home at 5 weeks old. This means from the time of conception to the time the babies can go home is a minimum of 8 weeks!
All Rat picks up are done local to our home. We prefer to use the local Walgreens as there is a large parking lot with ample light for day or night pick ups!
We will send out an email when the babies are ready to go home with times that we are available to meet. Please choose 1 of these times so you can bring your new baby home!
